I feel like I could just copy and past the post I wrote about SPA last year. And the year before. And the year before. Etc, etc. Because, truly, SPA is always a fantastic time. And truly, what else could it be when you put together great friends and a shared love of the fiber arts in a town with excellent shopping and dining opportunities?
Here are just a few of the reasons why it’s so awesome.
I get to share a room with the best roommates ever, Sharon and Jo-Ann. As Sharon would say – we travel well together. No muss, no fuss, no drama, just lots of laughs and stories.
I get to spend time with people I see only rarely and that time is often spent spinning and chatting. It’s the perfect chance to catch up and relax.
I get to plan our dining excursions. It requires some effort and some organizing but, you know, I like to be in charge and I enjoy doing it. I hit a home run on Saturday night for sure when I got us a private room at the Tuscan Brick Oven Bistro - from the rabbit to the braised short ribs to the scallops, everything was fresh and flavorful and delicious.
I get to shop. There are my favorite fiber vendors, of course, but there are also outlets. And L.L. Bean. Enough said.
I get to knit and spin and relax.
I get to have the time of my life.
