Day 21 of 30

Day 21 – A photo of something that makes you happy

Ok, the pic isn't of something, but someone...

...but it is something that makes me happy...

I don't often get to spend time alone with hubby. We lead such busy lives, what with raising two children, working full-time, running a business and a household, afternoon activities, you name it...pretty much the same situation as any couple out there.

We recently won an overnight stay at Schonegg Country Guesthouse, and this weekend we drove down to Murrumbateman (about 2.5 hours from our house) and spent the night in the beautiful countryside, dining on delicious platters of food, tasting the local wines and just relaxing.  It was so lovely.  We drove around the local vineyards and picked up a few new favourites.  Evelyn and Richard, the owners of Schonegg, made us feel so completely welcome. I would highly recommend going there. Just before dinner, all the guests met in the guest lounge for wine and canapes (the most delicious German onion cake - must google that recipe), then we all retired to our own private spaces for dinner. Andrew and I had the guest lounge to ourselves and it was just wonderful. Every room has a perfectly private view of the countryside.  Over dinner, we shared a bottle of wine from Yarrh that we'd picked up during the day. Felt very grown up. lol.

Even though we don't have alone time together very often, I'll take the little snippets we can get. Feeling very re-energised.

Cheers, Lis.
