One Relaxing Weekend

Closeup by fireplace I am married to an amazingly thoughtful man. We celebrated 16 years of marriage on December 11th. He took me that night to a wonderful restaurant where we live. But, he had another surprise. He said we had reservations at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort for an entire weekend in January! Yippee!!

Great Hyatt SignThis past weekend, we spent three days there and it was so much fun and relaxing. It was so special because over the 16 years, we have not been very good about making special time for us. I would not recommend that for anyone, by the way. You need time for you and your relationship…it was there before the children and it will be there when you have an empty nest. Nurture it!

These next two days, I want to share more about this resort and maybe by the end, you’ll want to go there, too!! With your special someone or with your whole family!

Entrance 1 When we drove up, we felt like we had the place to ourselves! Winter is definitely the time to go here for relaxation. The summer is packed full of activities for families so it’s busy.

The setting is resort-like but with a rustic/natural feel.


Lodge 2 This is the main lodge! Isn’t it gorgeous??

Horse Barn

There’s horseback riding, golf, hayrides, arts & crafts for the kids, and much more. There’s something for everyone.

Lake from distance A lake that is so peaceful- with a touch of nostalgia. Feels a bit like you stepped back in time. You can tell that it’s winter, but in the spring and summer, I’m sure it’s absolutely lush and gorgeous! We’re already planning a return trip with our children in the summer. Can’t wait!

Check back tomorrow and find out more…..




  1. So. Jealous! and SO.Happy. for y'all!

  2. Happy Anniversary! ♥ I've heard great things about this we MUST go!
