Here we go again!!

Yup we are getting hit with another  winter storm! It's already coming down pretty good here and it's only expected to get worse. I think we will be having a snow day tomorrow!! The timing couldn't be better. This past weekend I was away and wasn't able to do my normal weekend chores.
So if we have tomorrow off I'll have a chance to get all those little things done!

Speaking of this past weekend, I had a chance to escape with a good friend to New Hampshire. She has a lovely little cottage by the beach. We weren't sure what to expect when we arrived. New Hampshire had been hit by all those winter storms we had. 
We didn't know how much snow would be there.

Well we arrived to be greeting with a mountain of snow right outside of her cottage! Good think we packed shovels because we had to shovel a path to get to the front door! As much work as it was we still managed  to have laugh  our way through it!

This is usually a parking area.

What we were greeted with!

Once we got the shoveling done we could really begin our girls weekend! Saturday morning we headed up to Maine. Took the coast route all the way to Kennebunkport. It was a lovely day for a drive. The sun was out for a bit and  it was bitter cold. I think it even got above freezing!

My favorite stop along the way was Nubble Light House. It was breath taken! It looked just like a postcard. I could have stayed there and looked at it all day long.

After our long day of driving we treated ourselves to dinner at the "Old Salt" http://www.oldsaltnh.com/Freeform.aspx?name=TOSHome . We had a wonderful meal! I think I ate enough to last me a week. It was so good I just couldn't stop eating.  The atmosphere is as good as the food is too! We sat by the window and the snow was gently falling. It was just perfect!  Don't tell my husband he might get jealous that I had a "romantic" dinner without him!!

This weekend was just what I needed. I love winter but I think I was starting to get a little cabin fever. By going away it gave me a chance to miss being home. I think we all need a little break from our day to day routines.
Even though I felt a little guilty leaving my husband and baby behind it did me a world of good! I believe it makes me a better mom and wife when I am able to get away. I come back ready to face the world again! It feels so good to feel refreshed and full of energy again!

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time,

I agree girl! I believe it is just as good for the rest of the family as it is for you, to get away for awhile. It kinda helps them appreciate you a little more. =]

Your weekend trip on the coast is something I would LOVE to have! How fun and how beautiful! I love your pictures, they are so beautiful! I bet that lighthouse is so pretty in any season. I really love the snow pictures. I'm glad you had a chance to get away.
