They said it wouldn’t last.
Immediately after the wedding when the honeymoon plans had to be cancelled, they said “months, I give them months.” That was 35 years, 8 months and 1 day ago. The South of France never happened, but we did.
Maybe that’s why I think that the perfect way to say “I Love You” on Valentine’s Day is to whisk me away on a romantic getaway..or maybe I do the whisking.
My list is simple.
- Tickle my nose with a Champagne bubble bar
- Let me ride horseback on a deserted beach
- Take me on a cruise and proclaim your love to me as the sun sets
- Carry me over the threshold to our sumptuous suite
- Show me the wild horses roaming the marshes
- Surprise me with a private dinner overlooking the ocean on a beautiful golf course
- Hold my hand as we take a romantic walk through the lush grounds
Take me to the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort. Amelia Island, home to one of Florida’s most romantic beaches (according to USA Today). I won’t mind if you take a day to play golf or hit a bucket of balls. You deserve it. Don’t worry about me, I’ll find SOMETHING to do (hint: I’ll be at the spa).
