Last year my hubby declared that instead of gifts for my birthday, he was giving me twelve months of memories. Each month for the past year we disappeared for a getaway, and I loved every second of time spent with him.

Best. Gift. Ever.
As always, thanks for stopping by. Thanks for finding me.
Note: I travel light (license, lip balm, and a couple of dollars). Since I rarely carry my phone on our adventures, most of the photos are thanks to my hubby!
