Vacation fantasies

Today is our 9 year wedding anniversary, which of course, has me thinking about next year -- our 10 year anniversary (always on to the next big thing, I know). I'm thinking a spectacular trip is warranted, and I think the planning should start soon.

Our wedding took place in a little chapel on a hill at Palmilla in Cabos. It was a glorious affair with our closest friends and family. Picture perfect. We spent the next week honeymooning at Las Ventanas, also in Cabos. Both resorts are truly exceptional. The obvious choice would be to venture back to Cabos and spend a week where it all began. Right?! We said we'd come back. It seemed at the time that nothing could get better than this. But now that seems much too obvious.

To remedy this clearly pressing dilemma, I've spent a nice hour or two today drooling over the Mr. and Mrs. Smith website. Their hotels are ridiculously amazing. Ridiculous! You can even create a honeymoon registry, which I think is completely brilliant (hmm, what about a 10 year anniversary registry?!)

For your drooling pleasure, here are a few of my favorites:

A private island beach home in Belize

Loving these lush gardens and sparkling pool in Provence.

How rad would it be to stroll up to this Paris hotel and its funny hats?

You could sip wine and watch the sunset at a 900-year-old castello in Tuscany...

...or make friends with elephants, take outdoor showers and drink cocktails under glowing trees at a South African resort.

Honey, where would you want to go? : )

I'm glad I'm not the only one who drools over these things! By coincidence, I have the Trip Advisor Breathtaking Hotel Pools open in another web browser window! It's fun until I click through to the prices!

No, Caroline, you are not. I make it a habit, however, NEVER to click through and look at the prices. That is such a buzz kill.

Oh I would love to be under those trees. We all need to dream, it makes life better. One day will come sooner than you think. Stopped by from Thursday Friends, glad to met you. A little about my post today:
I'm teaching my daughter the art of following, hope you will stop by to encourage her.
