Merrin has done something exceptional for me in transforming our normal, somewhat boring kitchen into an incredible, beautiful room. (What she has done really is awesome! Pictures shortly)
In turn, I want to do something incredible for her. I need your input because this is probably something that's going to have to be planned well in advance for two main reasons: scheduling & budgeting.
Option A: I'm thinking about getting away to someplace warm this winter. We will probably be making a Florida trip, but I think Merrin would really appreciate some fun in the sun. I am thinking Mexico or someplace we can be incommunicado. We have a ton of Luxury Collection properties in Mexico and Latin America. I think it would be fun to sneak away and just disappear with one another for a few days.
Option B: Merrin loves New York. It may be her favorite city in America. But she's never seen it all dressed up for Christmas. I was thinking we could fly to NYC for some snowflakes and holiday shopping. Christmas is already our favorite time of the year. If we could work in a show or a few museums to balance out the shopping, she might just think she's died and gone to heaven. I think it's fair to say that we have some really exceptional NYC hotels, so that would definitely be an option.
OK, loyal readers, let's hear it.
