Let’s Test Your Romantic I.Q.!
Do you know which item is associated with an old English Valentine’s Eve custom?
Is it (a) bay leaves (b) a stem of lavender (c) sprig of mint (d) strawberries?
It’s (a) bay leaves!
Believe it or not, in the 1700’s, in their quest to find their true love, women in rural England would place bay leaves on their pillows at night with the hope they would see their future husband in their dreams.
Nowadays Valentine’s Day is celebrated with roses and chocolates.
Sweethearts who book a stay at Mission Inn Resort & Club in peaceful Howey-in-the-Hills, can enjoy plenty of treats in the form of amazing resort amenities such as two award winning golf courses, an exceptional eco friendly adventure trail, tennis courts, swimming pool and a delightful spa.
With elevation changes of over 85 feet, bunkers, doglegs, water hazards and other design factors, El Campeón golf course offers challenge to any golf enthusiast. Refresh with a swim afterwards or with a relaxing couples massage at Spa Marbella.
How Do You Express Your Love?
If you say it with a card, then you have Esther Howland to thank for it.
Did you know it was a woman who pioneered the American Valentine greeting card?
In 1850 in Worcester Massachusetts, Esther Howland produced delightful greeting cards with verses inside. Her products were extremely popular, and her enterprise eventually became a $100,000 a year business.
It’s not always easy to express thoughts in a card like Esther did, but an excellent way to create special memories with your love is with a good meal.
