OK, I promised you (and my husband) some ideas for the Trip We Take Before We Have the Baby (so much easier to say than “babymoon”) and honestly, I really don’t care. It doesn’t have to be elaborate. I just want decent surroundings and good food. A pool if possible. The aforementioned husband in relaxation mode. Anything else is just gravy.
I’m open to suggestions if you have them, but right now my thoughts are Big Sur or Napa. (Yes, going to wine country when you cannot partake is perhaps not the way to “do” wine country, but I’m not much of a drinker anyway, so I don’t think it would be too much of a loss.) If I found a bag of money on the street, I’d hightail it to the Post Ranch Inn, but one night there can cost as much as our rent, so…no. It doesn’t look bad, though, huh?
Another place I’d like to go, and this might not be pre-baby trip material, nor with-baby trip material, so let’s just file it away in the someday trip file, is on an overnight at the Eames house. But, for reasons I don’t entirely understand, the Eames FAQ will not tell you how much it costs. Much like “price upon request” in décor mags, or a Sotheby’s real estate sign, not revealing the price just means “If you have to ask, you cannot afford it.”
Or maybe it means “Actually, it’s free, but we don’t like to tell you that.” Here’s hoping.
