OH HAPPY DAYS ***





My husband and I recently (last week) celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary.
We decided to steal away for a few days to Ste. Anne's Spa in Grafton Ontario.. What a wonderful spot! It is on 500 acres with hiking trails, gardens, and beautiful scenery for as far a you can see.
The main buildings have been around for many many years and they have added on wonderful treatment rooms, hot tubs, steam baths etc.
No TVs, no computers, no cell phones! HEAVEN!! And to tell you the truth I didn't miss any of them.
We ate like royalty, had our feet and backs rubbed and spent time lounging in our robes all day!! IT WAS AMAZING!!
I married the most wonderful man in the world and I am so glad that we spent the weekend together just relaxing!!! All is right with the world!!

Oh My!!! That is what I said when I first saw your pictures...It looks like some place in a book instead of a "real" someplace. I am so glad you and hubby had such a great time...Memories are better than just days!!!

WOW ... this looks like an AMAZING place!! From all I have gathered ... YES, you have a VERY sweet, loving, generous hubby! How awesome is it that after 25 years you can still enjoy each others company to the fullest ... unfortunately not near enough couples can make that statement! Congratulations on your anniversary and I'm so happy for the both of you!!!

Happy Anniversary. I am fortunate enough to live about 20 minutes from Ste. Anne's and have visited there a couple of times. It is ALWAYS like entering a time warp. The world changes when you walk through the gateway in the stone wall.
