A Calgary Valentine – Part 3

For my readers who live outside of the beautiful city of Calgary, you should know that it is freezing cold here right now.  That is why in the midst of all my love for this city, I am dreaming of winter getaways to somewhere very warm.  I want to have to seek the shade of a tree or a beach umbrella.  I want to wear a bathing suit, a hat and some sunnies.  I want to order an icy beverage and walk around without layers and layers of clothing, sweaters, coats and scarves.  Sound good?

A hat you can scrunch up in your suitcase and then wear on the beach, from Swimco.

If your idea of a perfect Valentine’s gift is a getaway in line with my sunny dreams, maybe you should browse my Dreaming Of Mid-Winter Getaways board to get inspired and drop some hints for anyone who might be buying you a gift.  I would highly recommend asking for a gift card to local Calgary company, Swimco, so that you can outfit yourself in a great swimsuit and hat.

You are going to need some fabulous shoes, of course, and a pedicure.  For those days when your feet need to be treated extra special you could get a pair of these comfortable yoga sandals to wear with a long halter dress.   Are you dreaming yet?

If I could pick a sunny place to go right now, it would be St. Johns, USVI.  You can take one look at the picture below and see how happy the sun makes me.  Where do you dream of going for a mid-winter getaway?

Me, happy in the sunshine, at Skinny Legs on St. Johns, USVI.

    This surely is the time of year to dream about getting away….or better yet, actually getting away!
