Wine is something I grew into after college (you know, the years of liquor and beer) and I was ecstatic that Chris planned a weekend trip to Fredericksburg, TX for my birthday in 2010.
It's a little over a 5 hour drive down to the hill country, and it's like a night and day change in scenery from our everyday. The area is beautiful and so relaxed and was just what I needed during all of the wedding planning. The best part of the trip was that Chris planned it all. As a planner, I love to plan out our vacations - where we're going to stay, places to eat, what activities we're going to do. But this trip was such a refreshing change where Chris did all of that, all I had to do was pack and enjoy.
We stayed at a cute little B&B, where Chris had arranged for champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a couples massage.
We toured a couple of wineries and even had the opportunity to stomp some grapes!
We ate delicious breakfasts at the B&B, and Chris planned some fabulous dinners out around town.
Of course we couldn't leave without a couple bottles to go.
I love this birthday tradition of ours and hope to keep it going as long as we can!
