Are you nearly insane from the weather? It’s been a very ‘wintery winter,’ as one dear friend put it. Let’s be ‘done’ with this winter together!!
Mr. Muscle and I would like to take you to a Surprise Virtual Valentine Beach Party!
Where should it be? Jamaica, Cancun, Maui, Puerto Rico, Barbados? It’s your choice.
You’ve just flown in with only a small carry on bag. You didn’t have to pack much! “It’s in the tropics,” is the only thing your husband would say. (Weeks ago, we sent your husband a memo about this. 😉 )
On the island, we are staying at an elegant, all-inclusive boutique resort. There are touches of Tiffany Blue in the lobby décor scheme. The rooms are finely appointed with corkwood furniture. The rooms are complete with bidet and Crabtree & Evelyn bath products. I know you’ll be resting your head on your husband’s chest most of the night. However, there is a pillow menu for you to select a pillow, in addition. Hypoallergenic, lavender infused, and silk encased goose down are among the pillow selections.
The patio door was open when you and your husband arrived in your room. You immediately heard the rolling surf to realize your room is ocean side! You can’t believe how comfortable you are with the temperature. There is no sweating and no shivering on this virtual vaca.
Did you find the gift bag we left in your room? I hope you two liked it. The coconut oil was my idea. The oil warmer was Mr. Muscle’s idea. I decided the fuzzy cuffs would be much more comfortable than traditional. You two have a ball trying out the rest of the toys in the bag. 😉 Let me know which one was your favorite.
Fortunately, the resort is not so exclusive that the other patrons are unfriendly. All the guests treat each other as old friends. Customer service is excellent, attentive and yet not intrusive. They anticipate your every need. The best part is everything is FREE.
Our husbands went ahead to the beach. They are staking out chairs as we change into beachwear in our individual suites. You love the way you look in your beachwear and so will your husband!
All changed, we gather at the pool, I point over the veranda out onto the beach. Right there at the surf’s edge, we find our chairs. Do you see them? Our guys are waiting impatiently for us.
As we make our way to the stairs which will take us down to the sand, we pass the poolside steel drum band. The island music brings out an island rhythm, a slower pace. Oh, and just before we descend, an island girl serves umbrella cocktails! We grab two each, one for us and one for our handsome husbands. Yours can be with or without alcohol. Either way, they are delicious and cool.
Your husband sees you and drinks you in as you approach him. His eyes have the same look as when you walked down the aisle toward him. Unexpected, your heart gives a sweet jolt and suddenly you feel nervous! (If you two need to sneak back off to your room in a bit, we’ll save your chairs. You can return the favor later.)
Island boys and girls bring us light snacks and keep the water and umbrella drinks handy. Our only job today is to flirt with our husbands. The kids are in the best of care. I hired Mary Poppins! And all the pets are being cared for by the dog and cat whisperer.
Your treat later today includes whatever you and your husband desire and it’s all FREE.
A couples massage?
A long hike in the rainforest to see native animals?
A pedicure and facial?
A shopping spree at the local art gallery?
A catamaran cruise with snorkeling and dinner?
Or when the sun gets too hot, just quiet time under the awning in lounge chairs where you can sway to the music and enjoy each other’s technology free presence. (I forgot to mention, all phones, ipads and laptops were relinquished to the concierge’s safe for keeping.)
And dinner is up to you. You can join Mr. Muscle and I for stories and laughs. Or, you lovebirds can be served on your room’s private patio, overlooking the aqua and white beach below. The menu includes your favorite delicacies. Your husband sent your order in weeks ago. J
It’s up to you how long you stay at our Virtual Valentine Beach Party and Resort. Mr. Muscle and I will be staying about four nights. But, if you want to stay longer, we’ll send the jet back for you.
I hope you’ve enjoyed a little vacation from this snowy, icy and cold week. Thanks for playing along! Transfer these thoughts into a fun time with your husband in the very near future. Here’s a little steel drum music for inspiration.
