Tara knew that she was in for a great weekend when Sam had told her that he had a surprise for her, but nothing could prepare her for the series of perfect moments that would accumulate this Valentines weekend. Where are we going, exactly? she said with coy excitement as she put her suitcase in Sams F150. Not far at all, said Sam, knowing the forthcoming smile and excitement when Tara sees what he has planned. After stopping for gas and snacks (and cueing up their favorite road trip playlist), they found themselves on winding country roads, passing beautiful, rustic homes, tobacco and cotton fields, and local produce stands. When they passed a green mileage sign, Tara knew EXACTLY where they were going - Youre taking me to the beach! Youre taking me to the beach for Valentines! Sam looked over and grinned. Just wait

As Sam and Tara made their way back home, taking those winding country roads, they looked at each other and smiled. What a perfect weekend each thought. And they were right.
