This year Blake and I decided to forego Christmas gifts for each other and instead, we enjoyed a romantic weekend getaway at the Ritz Carlton at Reynolds Plantation. Reynolds Plantation is on Lake Oconee in East Georgia. This was our last romantic getaway in Georgia before we move back to Texas, so we really lived it up and enjoyed every minute of it.
We arrived early Saturday afternoon (Dec 20) and had a FABULOUS couples massage at the Ritz spa! It was so nice and relaxing, I actually fell asleep in the middle of it :) I never fall asleep during a massage, so you can imagine it must have been pretty stinkin' relaxing. Then we had a romantic dinner at the Georgian Bistro and walked around the hotel grounds. The entire resort was decorated for the holidays, including massive Christmas trees, a life-size REAL gingerbread house (that smelled SO yummy!) and s'mores at the outdoor firepit. Not only that, but EVERY single tree on the resort had Christmas lights on it!! This place has thousands of trees, so it was very impressive! My pictures don't do it justice, so check out their website as well.

This was the perfect Christmas present and we came back home refreshed and relaxed, just in time to make the 12 hour drive to Texas for the holidays!
