Hubby and I made a promise before Princess was even conceived; that no matter what, we would always remember that it all started with him and I and that we would continue to nurture that. We didn’t and we don’t want to be that couple that wakes up one morning when their kids have left the nest and wonder who we are sleeping next to. We don’t want to become strangers.
So a couple of times a year we vowed we would have a night just ourselves. And on the whole these nights have been spent in a nice hotel in the city where we wander around drinking at different pubs and sampling food along the way. Last weekend though for our belated anniversary we changed it up a bit and went glamping.
Set in Blackwood, which is one of our old haunts as young lovers, are Cosy Tents. We arrived Saturday afternoon and spent the time sipping drinks in front of the communal fire before heading to the local pub, a fave of ours, for dinner, before slipping into our large cosy tent for the night.
And when I talk about cosy tents, they are in actual fact that! We had a queen size bed, table and chairs, bedside tables, Bluetooth speaker, and best of all a small pot belly fire!! It was seriously magical. See that tent there, with the red vintage esky, that’s ours!
On Sunday we had a sleep in, totally amazing, followed by breakfast and a bush walk. We seriously had the best time ever together, just what the Doctor ordered.
The pretty light, the mineral springs and the peaceful surroundings just made it that bit more special. On the same weekend similar tents were unleashed in the heart of Melbourne City, but seriously, would you pass this up for the hustle and bustle??
Do you and your partner carve out time like this for yourselves as a couple? I’d love to hear about it. Or are you more a date night kinda couple?
