it's a romance and relics valentine

my pink saturday will be full of romance. my husband planned a romantic weekend, jim had asked me a few weeks ago if i wanted to go away for president's/valentine weekend. i was up for the little road trip he was planning, he said let's go to cape may (we live in new jersey) jim didn't  need to ask me a second time. cape may means beautiful victorian b&b's and antique shops. so i said will we stay at the john wesley inn? the john wesley is the b&b we stayed at almost 4 years ago for our honeymoon. he said no i think we're going to try someplace else. oh, ok jim, i'm happy with the idea and i'll look forward to whatever you plan. i left it all up to him and that was that. a few days after we had that conversation he told me he made reservations at the grand hotel. cape may, grand hotel, romance, vintage and victorian were my thoughts from that moment on. the 12th is here, and are you gettting the feeling you know where i am right now.well, if you guessed john wesley inn you would be correct. he pulled if off and totally surprised me. wow! this guy is a keeper. our room is so romantic, the beautiful grand victorian bed had PINK rose petals scattered over the fresh white linen. there are hints of vintage PINK treasures around the room, on the mantel, on the washstand and the vanity. now, what does one do when there isn't wireless service available at the 100 plus year old victorian, that had me at HELLO, look at my vintage beauty. jim pulled out his blackberry (we took the lap top thinking we would have internet) and used it for the IP. ??what?? i'm lucky if i get the pics to load, or type the right letters in the right place. using the blackberry is very slow i may share more pics when i get home. so, i blog this tonight straight from my grand romantic bed, with the fire burning and visions of all that's vintage dancing in my head. and just loving the man that made this happen. thanks for visiting please go see beverly and all the other blogs that will tell stories of pink and romance.

Lucky you! My family used to vacation every year in Wildwood, N.J. We would take a day trip to Cape May every year . I remember Cape May when all those beautiful houses were falling apart. Then each year, More and more houses would be restored. My Dream vacation is to spend a week in Cape May at Christmas time and go on all of the tours.Are you familiar with Belvidere N.J.? Another Victorian town with a great Victorian Days Celebration in Sept.
