Although I’ve been married for more than seven years, some of my favorite memories from Valentine’s Day involve being single. As a teenager, my friends and I were often forced to navigate our way through the carnation-decked halls of our high school, receiving cheap paper valentines only from each other. Once we got our driver’s licenses, we went to dinner together, stuffed ourselves with fries and cokes, and talked about our exes or the boys we hoped would send flowers. In many ways, “dates” with my friends were better than any bouquet.
I hadn’t thought about those Valentine’s Days in years until I heard about The Lodge at Geneva on the Lake’s Women’s Wellness Weekend
, taking place Feb. 18–19. Ladies can enjoy a two-night stay with holistic activities, healthy cooking demonstrations and breakfast each morning.
Although most of my friends are paired off now, I’d love to grab the girls and head out to Geneva-on-the-Lake for a weekend of massages, paraffin treatments and wine tasting. But if you’d rather spend a chilly weekend in February with your beloved, the lodge offers plenty of romantic packages for couples as well, including a sweetheart package
and a winter escape bed & breakfast
. All of their options give you the perfect excuse to spend February with someone you love.
