Jennie Garth has Dave Abrams' undivided attention.
The actors have been quietly dating since 2014, and over the weekend, the couple enjoyed a romantic getaway at luxury wellness retreat Sky Ranch Fitness at the Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, Calif. Garth's daughters, Luca Facinelli, 17, Lola Facinelli, 12, and Fiona Facinelli, 8, did not go on the vacation.
Garth and Abrams hiked along the ocean cliffs, featuring beautiful views overlooking the beach and valleys. "Thank you Stu @SkyRanchFitness for the awesome hike today! #santabarbara," she tweeted. The Beverly Hills, 90210 actress, 42, also tweeted a picture from their trek. "Amazing 9 mile hike in Santa Barbara with @SkyRanchFitness at @BacaraResortSB #skyranchfitness #retreat #grateful," Garth wrote.
Abrams, who guest starred in 2 Broke Girls, tweeted a selfie with Garth, writing, "Our selfie game is strong @BacaraResortSB thanks to Stu and staff @SkyRanchFitness for a great week @jenniegarth."
Since going public with Abrams last year, Garth and her girls have gone to Big Bear Lake with the actor. And, during one of their date nights in January, the couple watched Sam Smith perform at The Forum.
In June 2013, Garth and Peter Facinelli finalized their divorce after nearly 11 years of marriage. As the Mystery Girls star explained to Health magazine that year, "When I'm in excruciating pain, like with what I've been through with my breakup and that grief and loss that's just immobilizing, it helps to remember that it only lasts for 13 to 15 minutes, max. And then it's over. Your mind is ready to go to something else. You might come back to it, but it helps to just know that that pain is not going to last forever."
"I'm learning to date again," she said. "Looks aren't important to me anymore. I like positive energy."
Getting back into the dating pool wasn't easy. "It's fun and it's awful all at the same time," Garth told former talk show host Bethenny Frankel in 2013. "It's like a weird type of torture, but it can be fun."
What does Garth look for in a man?
"I look for somebody that shares an energy," she said. "It doesn't matter what the person looks like or what they really do. There has to be that first and foremost, that zing. That thing."
Based on her grin in Abrams' selfie, it would seem Garth has found seems "that thing" at long last!
