Hideaway Getaway

romantic getawayThe next three posts were from my pre-pregnancy days. As you can see that I still have my long hair here. ^_^

After weeks of intense work at the office, I decided to have a mini weekend getaway to a natural hot spring place at Ciater, Subang, about three hours away from the capital city. I'm staying at this darling resort of a dozen cottages called Gracia Spa. The place is all about greenery, picturesque surrounding, and natural beauty. I mean, what would make a better lullaby than the sound of a bubbling brook just right there beside your bedroom? Soothing indeed.

Now, one thing I reminded myself over and over in my marriage, is that I am not just a mother, but also a wife. It means I must, I want to make my husband a priority. I want to make time for him. I want to care for and about him. I want to make priority and time for US. Including taking a romantic getaway together, just the two of us, once in a while. We're not two little kids, we are not being selfish, we are basically investing in our relationship.

romantic getawayI've been waiting for this vacation for weeks, so I'm very excited to do all those fun activities people do on a holiday. Like, sleeping, eating, sleeping, eating a chocolate-covered, heart-shaped ice cream, ... Very productive, eh!
