weekend escape

I'm thinking of planning a little winter weekend getaway for Myles and I. Just the two of us. With sleep deprived days heading our way I think it would be a good idea for us to escape the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and just spend some time together.

Most people would probably escape to somewhere warm like Mexico or Florida but we're not sun worshippers (or I should say Myles isn't - that's what you get for marrying a redhead). Truthfully, I'm perfectly happy to get find a snowy lodge somewhere, preferably a place with skiing nearby, and just hibernate for a few days.

Here's a few things I wouldn't mind doing on our weekend getaway:

- read more than one chapter in a book uninterrupted in front of a fireplace.
- buy a huge stack of magazines and just work my way through them.
- go for a long walk amongst snow covered trees maybe on snowshoes.
- take some long baths - yes, more than one!
- go out for dinner and not worry about getting home to relieve the babysitter.
- explore a town I've never been to before.
- sleep in and enjoy a leisurely breakfast with a paper.

Luckily, for us there are many places in Eastern Canada and the North Eastern States where this kind of trip is possible. I'd love to hear if you have any suggestions for places to go or things to do?
