Fiber Revival 2015

I believe, and I’m not being corny, that every day is a gift. Every morning we get a chance to do the things we love, to spend time with family and friends, to work hard and play hard and to live. Some days, though, the things we get to do are a bit more fun. Vacation days, Jimmy Buffett concert days (this coming Saturday – eeeek!), SPA, beach days, and – of course – Fiber Revival. It was this past Saturday and it was just as good as ever.

The weather? Perfect. No humidity, blue skies and slight breezes and comfortable temperatures.

The food? Delicious. Sandwiches and cookies (even the ones Sharon brought that had kale in them) and snacks galore.

The beer? The Ipswich Beer Truck was there. Need I say more?

The shopping? All of my favorite vendors. Hand’s down.

The fiber? There’s nothing like one of Josette’s batts on my wheel to make me fall in love with spinning all over again.

The scenery? The Spencer Peirce Little Farm is a hidden gem, my friends.

And speaking of friends? Absolutely perfect. Having the chance to spin and knit and catch up with these friends of mine is my favorite thing about Fiber Revival. There is nothing, and I truly mean this, but nothing like sharing stories while spinning. Truths are told, hearts are revealed, laughs are shared and tears are shed, it’s a tremendous time of bonding and I’m so blessed to be a part of this circle of women and so lucky to call them my friends.

So, yes, every day on this side of the grass is a good one. But some days? Days like Fiber Revival? They might just be better than the others.

    Fiber, beer, friends, and stories sound absolutely perfect! Thanks for sharing your wonderful time, although I’m not completely convinced on the kale cookies.

    And a good time was had by all! Exactly how many times must one visit the beer truck before they deem kale cookies good?!

    Fiber Festival has been blessed with excellent weather for, what? Three years? Four years? Too much going on in my own little town for me to go this year. Maybe next year! Glad a good time was had.

    Glad that you had a most perfect day Carole! Nothing better than a day with great friends you don’t see often enough. :/)
