|"The Wallingford Tweeter"|
Ok. So through countless rounds of speed dating and beer tipping, you've found The One.
Fun in bed, cooks incredible breakfasts while you sleep in, he's The Perfect Man (or Woman).
You tie the knot on a bluff overlooking Seattle's Elliott Bay or perhaps at a
Tacoma bed and breakfast mansion and blissfully step forward, the Seattle Space Needle
pointing up to your blindingly bright future together.
Fast forward 3+ years later. You're both trying to juggle careers, house and car payments, maybe even a toddler or two. You whiz by the Space Needle without even noticing, tweeting your sweetie that you're going to be home late (again) while gamely trying to move over the two lanes to catch Aurora at the next light. Yeah, you need a break. And you need it now. You check your wallet and your bank account and credit card and... well, it's not going to be Paris this week.
Couples in today's economy and career-crunched lifestyles are getting creative with their entertainment funds, finding more efficient (read inexpensive and fast) ways of keeping that ever-beating spark alive. No time to hop a plane? Strapped for cash? No problem. Punch Seattle or Tacoma B&B into your iPhone and spin the wheel. Jacuzzi tub with a view? Gourmet breakfast in bed? Dinner at a mansion? Today's luxury urban b&b hotel innkeepers understand their market and are ready to deliver.
Some bed and breakfast boutique hotel inns in the Seattle Tacoma metropolitan area offer midweek specials, early check-in and romantic getaway packages (be sure to ask about any last minute specials when you call). Order up some sweet treats delivered to your hotel guest room - or bring your own basket of Trader Joe goodies. Luxury Tacoma and Seattle bed and breakfasts and boutique hotels provide evening refreshments and incredible gourmet breakfasts, with guest rooms that look like they've stepped off the pages of Sunset Magazine or Travel & Leisure (and indeed, some of them have). All this and you won't have to eat ramen noodles to make it through the week. Who needs Paris?
When not eating ramen noodles, Yarrow Vincent-Wayman is off writing cheeky things about "oh, the universe, choosing your Doppler twin, Feynman's theory on the approaching velocities of orange objects, things of that sort." Award-winning screenwriter and novelist, physics major and self-appointed kitchen wench at Chinaberry Hill, she'd love to hear back from anyone out there who is plugged in and listening.
More stories served up fresh at our new Tacoma bed and breakfast blog (coming soon).
Watching the fireworks from the porch at Chinaberry Hill, wishing everyone a year filled with joy and abundance.
Happy New Year!
Popcorn in bed & complimentary tweets.|
We know who you are. Chinaberry Hill.
