Spring is in the air!

Spring has sprung…how about you?

It’s time to come out of hibernation, shake off the cobwebs and begin planning the perfect spring getaway;

Couples on the west coast can plan a spring getaway to the most romantic California destinations; Napa, San Francisco, Carmel and of course sunny San Diego.

Our favorite getaway destination in the Napa area is The Villagio Inn and Spa. Newly renovated and offering fantastic spring specials which include deluxe accommodations for two in a guest room with a fireplace and oversize sunken bathtub, complimentary bottle of wine and access to the Champagne Breakfast Buffet. This is truly an invitation to indulge.

The Midwest and East Coast temperatures are still a little chilly but with the Airlines offering fantastic get away deals, why not book a flight to sunny California.

On a budget?

You can create your own romantic getaway. Send the kids off for the weekend and follow some of the suggestions from Melissa Michaels at christianwomenonline.net. Her ten suggestions not only create a wonderful spring romantic weekend getaway but an everyday tranquil place to retreat:

Here are 10 ideas for creating a romantic and restful sanctuary:

  1. Remove Clutter
    Clutter is the enemy of a peaceful bedroom.
  2. Hide Electronics
    Keep electronic gadgets including electric clocks concealed if it all possible.
  3. Mood Lighting
    Install dimmers and three way switches to create the perfect mood.
  4. Beautiful Bedding
    Invest in good quality attractive bedding. Discount stores often have great deals on discontinued quality bedding; have fun mixing and matching what you find!
  5. Closed Storage
    Bedside tables are clutter magnets..
  6. Sparkling Clean
    Give your room a good cleaning.
  7. Scrumptious Scents
    Freshen the air with wonderful smelling candles.
  8. Make Bed Daily
    Commit to making the bed as soon as your feet hit the floor–and keep it from being buried in clutter all day.
  9. Soothing Music
    Create your own play list of soothing music.
  10. Privacy
    Teach your children and household members to respect your privacy when the door is shut. You should be able to shut the door and block out the world now and then!
