I don’t know about you, but once Thanksgiving is past we seem to shift into high gear: A count down of sort until the Christmas celebration. My “to-do” lists seem to take on a life of their own, growing exponentially longer by the day!
As I’ve aged, I’ve learned to pace myself and actually plan for a little R&R in these very busy times. Yes, there are still the holiday celebrations to attend, as well as our own party to plan and host… as well as the house decorations, gift shopping, and well… you get the idea. But, it somehow seems all the manageable when part of my “plans” include a plan for my own respite!
The El Colibri is one of my favorite places to stay – so how wonderful to slip off for just a weekday night or two to recharge my batteries. My husband is only too ready to accompany me and the two of us enjoy a special, secret escape from the craziness of the holidays. We return home, 40 miles distant, new people – renewed, refreshed and most ready to celebrate the holidays with friends and family.
If you haven’t considered this sort of mid-season respite – do so!
