Romantic Getaway in Your Future?

>> Monday, April 21, 2008

I’m reading this great book about marital relationships. It breaks down to men think like waffles (in blocks and only one subject at a time) and women think like spaghetti (everything is connected and intertwined with everything else).

The chapter I just finished said that couples should get away twice a year- just the adults. One time a year should be just to discuss the “business” of the family: vacations, finances, kids’ schedules and activities, etc. A great idea. I never thought of the family as business.

The second getaway they recommend is for reconnection. Someplace romantic, preferably with room service and maybe a hot tub. I’ve been planning just this kind of weekend for later this year (Doug’s birthday, our 5th anniversary, my birthday) and have been spending a lot of time trying to figure out the perfect place to escape to.

I’ve been perusing the website for an Asheville Bed and Breakfast , the Lion and the Rose. They have a new video tour of their beautiful “pink lady” and I have to say that luxurious and inviting instantly spring to mind while I watch it.

It’s just the kind of place Doug and I used to stay before we had children. And it’s just a few miles down the road from the Biltmore Estate, a place we both want to visit. It could be the perfect getaway.
