"Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to joy, and makes. . . royal kings and queens of common clay. It is the perfume of the wondrous flower - the heart and without that sacred passion, we are less than beasts; but with it, earth is heaven and we are gods" wrote Robert G. Ingersoll.
To keep that love alive and to rekindle the passion and fire, plan a two day romantic escape away from the cares of the world that will suit your personalities and mood: A sunny resort, a cabin or rented RV for a mountain lake or desert get-away under the stars. A luxury hotel or spa may be just the thing where you can indulge in tennis, golf, great food and delicious nights followed by breakfast in bed. Or an educational mini-vacation might be more your style like a weekend of learning to paint watercolors, or a cross-country ski camp, or a writers retreat can bring you closer and inspire future fun together.
If you're not in the mood for travel and elaborate plans, staying home with the phone turned off and the kids sent to the grandparents can be romantic. Pull down the blinds, turn off the phone and send the message that this is private-time weekend. Stock up on candles, bubble bath, some romantic films, delectable food and of course good wine to set the mood.
My favorite romantic weekend wine is high quality, value priced and is appropriately called One Last Kiss from world famous Napa Valley, and is produced by a Gold Medal winning husband and wife team. You can order their delicious nectar shipped right to your door right now and consider joining the wine club-the best invention since the corkscrew. Because not only do discounts apply on the already attractive price, you get to try a variety of wines and find The One that really turns you on. Happy Romantic weekend!
