It is almost Valentine's Day and today I find myself reminiscing... 

I am remembering this time last year when MY SWEETHEART surprised me with the  wonderful VALENTINE'S SPA WEEKEND at the Grove Park Inn.

If you aren't familiar with The Grove Park Inn, this historic Inn is located in the beautiful mountain region of Asheville North Carolina and is absolutely beautiful!
Upon arrival you will want to allow the red coat, tall hat, and white gloved gentleman to park your car... you won't be needing it again!

This special VALENTINE'S CLASSICAL ROMANCE & SPA EVENT includes excellent shopping, evening entertainment, dining, dance lessons, dancing and on the last evening there is a Grand Ballroom Gala for dancing with a wonderful band, and ahhhhhhh...the SPA!

It was snowing, snowing, snowing!

This picture was taken while we overlooked the outdoor spa as we enjoyed drink, hor d'oeuvres and a warm fire in the relaxing den area located on the Spa Suites floor.

There are no words to describe how wonderful the outdoor spa is...
Dressed in your bathing suit and wrapped in your SPA robe, you will FREEZE as you leave the warm indoor spa area and head to the outdoor spa area...you will FREEZE!  But once you step down into the hot, bubbly spa and feel those warm bubbles on your freezing face, well it is absolutely amazing!
The outdoor fireplaces are magical...this is a wonderful experience, especially at night!

Notice the icicles, they kept getting longer, and longer as we leisurely enjoyed the beautiful view and scrumptious hor d'oeuvres !

This picture is of the inside Spa area, but the picture doesn't do it justice.  It is so unique with the stone walls, and ceiling with a sky light that spans the length.  You cannot see them in this picture, but there are water falls on both sides, wonderful massaging waterfalls, so great for soothing your neck and back ... ahhhhhhh!

Heading to dinner the Concierge offered to snap our picture...

We always have a wonderful time at the Grove Park Inn.
It is the most relaxing place to visit!  Marvelous dining, shopping, entertainment and did I say . . . R E L A X I N G!

I remind MY SWEETHEART, I tell him often...
though times such as this Valentines Day Romance & Spa Event, which we both enjoyed every minute of are WONDERFUL ...
I am just as happy and content being at home, on the couch, with a cup of coffee...as long as MY SWEETHEART is right beside me!

Happy Valentine's Day to you my sweet friends!
