The Nation’s Weather is ….. driving us to Lenny Kravitz Getaways!
 (Sorry Steven Tyler) 
The nation’s weather is going to my head!  I want to getaway via Lenny Kravitz style.  Little trivia here!  My family and I are major Aerosmith fans, so at the concerts we usually sit in the first few rows due to our status in the fan club for the same cost as the nose bleed seats!  Well at one Aerosmith concert Lenny Kravitz opened for Aerosmith and he gave my son his Fiji Water Bottle.  I guess that may be as close as I ever get to Steven Tyler.

Well I don’t really have time right now to jet away to Fiji,
 so I think I started thinking where do I want to go right now?
Well if you have ever heard Lenny sing his “I’ve got to getaway!” melody you may know that with the current weather situation in many parts of the country, presently we all want to get away!  I want to jet away to somewhere that feels far away and somewhere WARM!  I need the sun shining down on me warming me up to the bones
Here are a few places that I spotted recently to put in my “Goblet List”.  If you don’t have a goblet list you must.

Here is my #1 Getaway Pick of the Day

 Little Palm Island Resort & Spa

Noble House’s signature spa, SpaTerre, located at Little Palm Island incorporates the style and traditions of east and west cultures while promoting health, peace and relaxation through cross-cultural spa experiences. Guests can enjoy a special couple’s massage at the resort’s outdoor Palapa Point, with its thatched roof, outdoor pavilion overlooking the ocean, followed by a visit to the Zen Garden, which is a great place for quiet reflection. A trip to SpaTerre at Little Palm Island wouldn’t be complete without a Key Lime Margarita Pedicure, which incorporates the key limes that the area is famous for and begins with the resort’s own signature Key Lime Margarita for guests to sip on.

Accessible only by boat or seaplane, Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, in the Lower Florida Keys, is located on a lush, 5.5 acre private island dotted with crushed seashell paths amid verdant tropical foliage. Each of the 15 spacious thatched-roof bungalows offer ocean views and plush interiors. The award-winning Dining Room at Little Palm Island delights guests with a vibrant blend of French and Pan-Latin cuisine and features an ever-evolving menu.
