Holiday Hideaway - SSS

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 10 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

Your “Secret Subject” is:: Are family get-togethers something you look forward to or dread during the holidays?  Or would you rather run away to a resort and celebrate the holiday with your significant other?
It was submitted by:   

Well that's easy. A holiday hideaway is what I choose.

A lake side cabin where we could watch the sunrise and set. Relax and only do what we wanted. Read, talk, rest, hike, fish, boat or absolutely nothing at all.

 Something like this. Doesn't it look wonderful?
We could cook outside over an open fire. Maybe even fish we caught earlier.
 Enjoy a delicious cup of coffee while the sun rises over the lake while we decide what to do with our day.
 My husband would definitely spend time fishing while I would walk around the lake, find a spot to sit and read or just breath.
 After a long day of enjoyment, a nice drink on the deck while the food is sizzling over the fire.
 Maybe even rent a paddle boat and take it once around the lake.
We have actually talked about this very thing and it is on our "to do" list. We both love our families but they can and do stress us out, make ridiculous demands, last minute plans that always end up being very inconvenient for us but no one else. His siblings are as different as oil and water so they do not mix well or as we used to say as kids "do not play well with others" so if I had a choice, which as an adult I do, I will always side on being "just the two of us" or a get away!
Thanks Carol!

  1. I hope you do end up on that get away. I'm betting you will.

  2. That sounds amazing. I'd love a getaway with the hubs. I used to dread family get-togethers, actually get sick over them, but my husband has lost almost his whole family in the last few years and I'd love one more Xmas with them. Now with the grandkids I love it.

  3. I'd celebrate with my own family and then conveniently depart before the day of *his* family's get-together rolls around ;-) Need I say more?

    The two of you should totally do this. You deserve it. It's not like you went on a honeymoon, right?

  4. We'll be in the cabin around the bend if you want to stop by and visit a while, have a drink or just look at the water..........
