Hi! I am so excited that it is almost Valentine’s Day! Chris and I took the kids on a Princess Cruise for their school break and just got home the other day. It was so neat to leave out of Fort Lauderdale and actually get to see our house from the ship. Then, as the Emerald Princess departed from Port Everglades, we were also able to wave goodbye to Lago Mar. We had a fantastic time and met some nice people. One couple stayed with us a couple of years ago, before one of their cruises out of Fort Lauderdale, and went on and on about how much they loved Lago Mar!
It is nice to be back, though, and the weather is absolutely gorgeous today with super sunny skies and temperatures in the low 70’s. I hope it stays nice for the rest of the weekend for our many guests and club members who are celebrating the romantic holiday with us. Of course, Chef Phil has prepared an amazing menu for us. Some of the highlights are an Acorn Squash and Poached Pear Salad with fried goat cheese, Sea Scallops with Boursin cheese grits, wilted kale, roasted garlic cauliflower puree and persimmon relish to start. My three favorite main courses are the Chateaubriand for Two, the Florida Lobster Tail and the Veal Scallopini! I am getting hungry just writing this!
I think I am going to head into the Resort Shop and see if there are any pretty red or pink pieces I can wear on Sunday. I definitely need to check with our spa to see if I can get a pedicure so I can have my toes painted a festive red color. If any of our members or guests are reading this and have not decided what to get their Valentine for a gift – gift certificates for spa services or products are a perfect idea!
Happy Valentine’s Day
