10 Fitch InnSider Secret - How To Create An Amazing Sleep Experience - Part 2 8 Apr 2016, 12:45 pm
How To Create An Ahhh-mazing Sleep Experience - Part 2
10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn so, back in January I began sharing with you the answers to some of these questions, the secrets that make our beds, and our guests sleep experience exceptional so that you can recreate the same experience for yourself at home. If you receive our monthly newsletter and clicked the link in the section titled "More Padding Please" or maybe even clicked the live demo link, about the new mattress pads that I had just ordered, you probably thought I was quite possibly just a little overly excited about them! Well, they came in and the first one went right on my own bed so I could give it a test drive before our guests experienced them. I am actually quite shocked at how much of an improvement this mattress pad is over the one I had on my bed, which I thought was pretty nice! Now, I haven't laundered it yet so I can't comment on the EZ zip off top and how well that works but so far I am more than happy with the purchase and look forward to feedback from our guests.
I also gave you info about our mattresses, amazing sheets, and that we use faux feather beds. Now I'll finish building our bed and the rest of the 10 Fitch sleep experience for you.
- Blankety, blank blank - We have one blanket on each of our beds, just one. We love an all season microplush blanket like these on the beds, because they are warm in the winter yet light enough for summer when the air conditioners are running. One side is microfiber and the other side is plush like velour. They wash great!
- Pillow Talk - We like faux down again because it's hypoallergenic and makes cleaning super simple. I bought most of our pillows at Bed Bath and Beyond and they were between $60 - $70 a piece. I got side sleeper pillows so they are soft but not too soft. We have zip off pillow covers on all the pillows, again so we can wash them easily.
- Icing On The Cake - Each of our beds is topped with a coverlet in the summer or a comforter or duvet in the winter. Faux down of course. We wash our bedding frequently so I look for durable and easy to care for but also luxurious looking and feeling fabrics.
- Beyond the Bed - I think the bed is a major key
component for a great nights sleep but there are some other things
that we've paid special attention to that I think combined with our
great beds work together to provide for our guests a stellar
- We use relaxing color tones and patterns, nothing too vivid or bright, in our decor.
- Windows are covered with window treatments and shades that are pulled down to filter out bright morning sunlight. Upon request we also provide sleeping masks for our guests to use during their stay.
- Dim the display - Our iPod docking station alarm clocks have a "brightness" button to adjust the digital display. You can dim it or even turn it completely off if those bright numbers bug you. If you don't have this feature on your alarm clock use a sticky note to cover it.
- An iPod with a selection of excellent, relaxing, playlists is provided for each guest room - instrumental relaxation, spa sounds & sleep sounds as well as a Love Songs playlist.
- We provide ear plugs to block out all sound if that's how you sleep best.
- Clean The Noise - Just like light, unwanted sounds can disrupt your sleep. Hubs and I have an air purifier in our bedroom that emits a constant, fan-like sound, providing excellent white noise, which helps to mask any unwanted sounds. White noise machines with adjustable volume are installed near the bed in each one of our guest suites. To recreate this at home you don't even need a machine because now you can just download an app for your smartphone. Does the sound of gentle rain on the roof lull you to sleep? How about a crackling campfire and the sound of crickets? Ocean waves? Wind chimes or the wind through the trees? That's the kind of thing you can experience with these apps. A really nice one, and it's FREE, is ipnos softwares Sleep Melodies. It can help you with more than just relaxing and sleeping too. I have it installed on both of my office Macs and use the Binaural beats to help me concentrate and keep distractions at bay since my computer/offices are located in my and hubs living room and in the kitchen, where there is often plenty of activity going on around me.
- Aromatherapy - Scientific evidence suggests that aromatherapy with lavender may slow the activity of the nervous system, improve sleep quality, promote relaxation, and lift mood in people suffering from sleep disorders. Each of our guests is given a lavender sachet which they may take home with them. During their stay, we place it on their pillows when we do their evening turn down.
- Clean & Tidy - Clean & uncluttered is the environment that best fosters healthy sleep. Believe it or not, messiness and clutter produce stress, which you definitely don't want in the bedroom. You can rest assured that when you come to 10 Fitch you will check in and find your suite clean, uncluttered and inviting and unless you tell us otherwise, we will refresh your room daily for you during your stay.
See these online resources for more in depth information on how clutter and messiness can affect your sleep.

10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn ~ Top 10 Marriage Hacks To Keep Your Love Thriving 1 Feb 2016, 3:37 pm
Top 10 Marriage Hacks To Keep Your Love Thriving
Yeah, not just alive but thriving!
|Me & hubby|
June 2016 hubs and I will celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. We were very young when we married, 17 and 20, and everyone we knew said it would never last. Truthfully, for the first 7 years there were many times when all that kept us together was not wanting all those people to be right! But during that time, and all the years since, we learned a few things about marriage, love and commitment that have helped us weather all the storms and have kept our love for each other thriving. I hope you find them helpful too.
- Plan for physical intimacy. This is absolutely critical. As time goes on and our lives get busier and busier, passionate, spontaneous sex just doesn’t happen much. Maybe you’re just too tired or there really hasn’t been an opportune time for all the stars to align and put the two of you in the mood at the same time with little or no chance of interruption. There is nothing wrong with scheduling your intimate rendezvous with your spouse. In fact, to do so is very thoughtful and loving. Physical intimacy is so important in a marriage, that deep connection and time set apart for the two of you to be focused on nothing else but each other and deepening that bond between you. If it’s not happening on a regular basis then you definitely need to plan for it.
- Make a Marriage Bucket List - write down everything you want to do together. Trips you want to go on, hobbies to take up, projects to complete - spend some time talking about things you’d like to do as a couple and make a list of the ones you both agree are things you should do. You will learn a lot about each other as you make your list and you will have a lot of fun doing it. Try to set a general, tentative, date for the completion of each thing on your list - for example, next week, next spring, by 2018, before we celebrate our 25th anniversary, etc.
- Make a game out of doing the chores - Come up with a prize, either something you agree on as THE prize or agree that whoever wins gets to choose something. It can be anything - favorite treat, a full body massage, you agreeing to do one of their chores for a week, dinner and a movie, cleaning their car, you get the idea. Next, assign each other, and agree upon, a task or list of tasks to complete. The first one done gets the prize or gets to pick a prize ;)
- Make your marriage a priority - Have regular date nights. Actually put them on the calendar, at least once a month, doesn’t have to be expensive or fancy but it should be just about the two of you…together, for several hours, talking (but not about jobs, kids or money), connecting, laughing, sharing. This is soon important and is one of the reasons why 10 Fitch is an adults only, romantic escape. We know how vital this is. and want to be a part of helping couples connect in meaningful, lasting ways with each other. When our boys were young we couldn't afford to do much, even paying for a sitter was often out of the question, but we did what we could to make special time to be together and not let anything else intrude. Maybe just snuggling up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and a romantic movie that we watched after the kids were in bed. Later, it was going out to dinner, just the two of us, and whenever we could we would pack a bag and take a little romantic escape, even just for one night at a nearby motel, so we could reconnect and be totally away from all the demands of our lives.
- Say I love you every day, throughout the day. Not just in person and face to face, leave a note where your spouse will find it, in the bathroom, car or on the fridge. Text or message them. Call and say, “I just wanted to tell you I love you and am thinking about you.” When you do say it in person you should always punctuate it with a kiss :)
- Hold hands often. This warm, skin to skin contact is not only romantic but also reassuring, comforting, calming, and it re-establishes an important physical connection with the one you love. Without saying a word, when you reach for someones hand you send a powerful message that you are there for them and want to be near them.
- Hold hands when you are arguing. If things are getting a little heated in your discussion call a time out, take a deep breath, make eye contact and lovingly reach for your spouses hand. Now don’t let go until you’ve finished your discussion. It will then be much harder for anger and harsh voices to intrude.
- Learn & speak frequently your spouses Love Language. This can feel like learning a foreign language. Seriously! The truth is that we all feel love in different ways and we tend to express it to others in the same way that we best feel it. But this can be a problem if your spouse doesn’t feel or receive love in the same way that you do because your love language won’t “translate" to them the same. If you are going to express to them that you love them you want them to hear you, you want them to feel it right? So, you need to know their Love Language which according to Dr. Gary Chapman, there are five - physical touch, quality time, acts of service, words of affirmation, receiving gifts. You may think you are letting your spouse know that you love them but If you are not speaking their love language they just aren’t hearing you. Let’s say your spouses love language is physical touch but you aren’t very affectionate, you can shower them with all the gifts you want or help them with chores around the house and they still are not going to feel loved by those expressions no matter how genuine or sincere they are. You and your spouse can download an app for your smart phone to find out what your love language is and then complete the 5 week challenge to learn how to express love to them in their language. Pretty cool! You can find out more here.
- Don’t let them get away! It’s so easy to fall into the mind set that once you are married you don’t have to try so hard to win over the one you love but if you do that you are probably going to run into problems. Don’t you remember what it was like when you first met your spouse? Think back now… I’ll bet that you spent a lot of time thinking about them right? You paid special attention to your appearance (and theirs!) when you knew you were going to see them. You were interested in finding out as much about them as you could so you asked questions right? You wanted to be with them and you did everything you could to win their heart didn’t you? And do you remember what that felt like, being with them then? That’s what it was like to fall in love. Well for goodness sake, don’t let them get away now! You won your spouses heart but it’s a fact that you still have to work to keep it!
- Love and be more committed to your marriage than you are to your spouse. What? I know, it sounds odd but truthfully, in this day and age of disposable marriages and couples leaving one another for practically any reason or no reason at all, if you truly want your marriage to last you
