Years ago, after my second and last child turned one, I decided to treat myself to an overnight getaway. In the past five years, I had been pregnant twice, a SAHM mom for four years, breastfeeding two babies for a year each and I had never spent a night away. It was purely my own doing. I wasn’t ready until that point. So when I finally needed it, I booked a room and a massage appointment in the spa, kissed my family goodbye and went to The Westminster Hotel in Livingston.
The Westminster Hotel was a perfect getaway. It was super close, so my separation anxiety was practically zero, it’s really beautifully designed and there is a small spa on site. I got a one hour massage, ordered room service (a big juicy steak, baked potato and green beans–The adjoining restaurant is Strip House) a glass of wine, rented Sex and The City 2, and settled into bed with a book (Twilight: Breaking Dawn). It was a night of pure bliss. The next morning, I had breakfast and was picked up around noon by my family. My girls were thrilled to see me and my husband greeted me with flowers. I was thrilled to see them and was refreshed.
So when thinking of a great Mother’s Day giveaway for all of you deserving moms out there, I thought of my special night. Mother’s Day is only less than two weeks away after all.
So it’s with great excitement that I offer you this giveaway. Thanks to the generosity of The Westminster Hotel, one very lucky mama will win a complimentary weekend stay in a one bedroom suite and a 60 minute spa service of her choice (massage or facial)! That’s even better than my night away!
