“So, come DOWN and see this!”
La Diva plowed on and found I had completed my lengthy prep list only a few hours later. By 7 pm, I was on the couch with a glass of wine. I looked at the clock and thought to myself: “Damn. I think I could have gone up there for a bit…”
“Um, Dhani was there?”
“Yeah, I told you. I told you to come down. He wasn’t sure if I was Australian or New Zealand.”
“I thought you said Todd English told you that.”
“No! I said DHANI!”
“Dhani Jones asked me that, he’s a very well-traveled guy. You love him. You know him, he’s on the Travel Channel, he’s an ex-NFL football player for the Bengals.”
A very crestfallen La Diva said, “Um, yeah, I know.”
and nary a Diva to be seen. : (
PAY ATTENTION to your husband when he’s trying to tell you something.
Sometimes it’s good to take a break to enjoy yourself and meet people that inspire you.

Gorgeous. Incredible. Rock star. Were the words that came to mind upon entering the room. Yep, Diva was gonna be happy here tonight!
Back up to the room with my Epic daiquiri (including the subtle addition of St. Germain Elderflower liqueur) to relax and “celebrate” our love and then dissolve into a nice, long bubble bath in the extra large spa bath tub! Dee-lite-ful! And the final luxury: a nice little snooze before we got dressed and had some pre-dinner cocktails!
“No, Miss Diva. Will you be attending the wine reception tonight?”
“WINE reception?” La Diva’s eye’s light up.
“Yes, John, I will certainly be attending. Thank you.”
We looked at him dreamily and said “Yes, thank you. We’ll be back.”
