But, we celebrated it with a suprise trip to New York(!!!) so it wasn't all bad!
I knew my wonderful husband had arranged a weekend away but he kept the destination secret for months. He eventually told me a few days before we flew out, mainly because he knows I am a closet control freak and had to plan our intenary to the minute!
We had the most amazing time and I loved every single minute. The first afternoon we had rain (the like of which I have never seen before) & the next 3 days were hot, hot, hot! I absolutely fell in love with the city and I didnt want to leave.
We stayed at the gorgeous Setai on 5th Avenue which is right in the center of Manhattan. The staff were really friendly and helpful - I came back to the room on my birthday to find some chocolates and a birthday card, as well as champagne on arrival at the restaurant later on. Perfect!
Just thinking about it makes me want to go back... maybe next year
