8 Reasons to Get Away '08

1. It’ll be 2009 before you know it. Time flies. Why don't you?

2. Had enough holiday madness? Then treat yourself to what you really want- an escape.

3. 2009 is the Year of the Rat. Why not sit out this rat race and relax?

4. Sometimes less is more, even when it comes to family. A happy wife means a happy life. Take a bit of time for yourself.

5. After all the sweets, cocktails, and stress, might you be craving something healthy? An adventure that recharges spirit and body may be just what the doctor ordered.

6. If you time your vacation just right, you might just avoid Spring Cleaning.

7. You can finish that ____________ (insert: novel, romance, project, etc.) you started last year.

8. It will all be waiting when you get back.
