Welcome to Carrie's Corner, where I explore all-things Couples, romance, adventure, cuisine and Jamaica. Join me on this journey as I share weekly stories of the lovable staff, loyal guests and behind-the-scenes insights of these breathtaking resorts as Chief Romance Officer of Couples Resorts.
The Couples' Table
Why you should sit down together at least once a day.
Many of us are tied to such busy schedules, that we find ourselves going days without truly connecting with our partner. Studies show that couples who spend focused time together interacting on a regular basis have a better chance of building a loving, long-term relationship. That’s why I believe it is so important to sit down together at least once a day with no distractions.
Imagine this. . . You and your partner, alone, for 15 minutes (maybe more!), talking, sipping wine, locking eyes, and reminiscing how you met, fell in love, all the while remembering why you’re together. Yes, it can be difficult to carve out that alone time every day, but here is why it is so crucial to your relationship. . .

Jamaican Babymoon at Couples Resorts
As Chief Romance Officer of Couples Resorts, it's only appropriate that when my husband Bryan and I got pregnant, our go-to destination for the perfect pre-baby escape was to go to our happy place, Couples Sans Souci. Babymoons are very popular these days and present an opportunity for mom and dad to reconnect and relax on vacation before the major life event of welcoming a newborn into the family.
Read all about our romantic babymoon and why Couples Resorts was the perfect destination where we could be just "us" before we expand to a family of three.
Guest Spotlight Series: Mr. & Mrs. Hunter

This month we are featuring Tim and Amanda Hunter from Amarillo, Texas for our Guest Spotlight Series. They are full of life and love for Couples Sans Souci and you will see why after reading their interview. Enjoy!
St. Patrick's Day Drink Recipes, Jamaican Style
'Tis the season to wear green, search for four-leaf clovers and indulge in fun, festive libations and cuisine that celebrate St. Patrick's Day. We sat down with some of our favorite bartenders across the resorts and came up with two recipe ideas on how you can celebrate the green holiday at home, Jamaican style.
Grab your sweetie, put on something green, and make yourselves a drink as you toast to St. Patrick's Day, daydreaming of "home" in Jamaica. We'll be waiting for your return.
