Surprise Treat

Surprise Treat

We are in Oregon on a personal matter... It just happened our 10 year anniversary was this week.  We went out to a nice dinner at I Love Luc (http://www.i-love-luc.com/).  I wasn't expecting anything else, but Jay surprised me with a trip to the Allison Inn & Spa in Newberg, just 30 minutes out of Portland.

Allison Inn & Spa, opened in 2000, is surrounded by lush Oregon wine vineyards.  The property is beautifully maintained and the service is impeccable.  Consistently this Inn & Spa has received the highest of accolades:  Travel + Leisure's 2014 Hotel Top 500 Hotels in the World, Conde Nast Traveler's #2 Resort in the US, Organic Spa's Top 10 Green Spa, Wine Spectator Best of the Award of Excellence.

So it was a surprise treat to wake up and be told we have a couples massage scheduled and lunch reservations....
