Ever since Jack was born, my idea of a romantic evening with my husband usually revolves around catching up on Lost episodes and downing a bottle of wine with our dog nestled between us. This is all the romance we can muster because we're just plain tired. We haven't had a good night's sleep in almost a year because Jack still wakes up several times a night to party in his crib. Let's face it- kids are cute and all...but they are kind of a romance buzzkill.
This is why I've come to realize that sometimes mom and dad need a night off. What better time to rekindle some romance than Valentine's Day? This is one of the only nights of the year that you can guilt-free ditch your kids. And The Brown Hotel has some amazing romance packages that can spice up a relationship.
Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday this year, so the Brown has plans to pamper their guests all weekend long. Stay at this historic hotel in downtown Louisville with one of their many Valentine packages that start at $175 for a one-night stay. There are even more luxurious packages that include roses, champagne and a 5 course dinner at one of their restaurants. You can view their Valentine's packages at www.brownhotel.com  or call for a reservation at (502) 583-1234.
