It was so much fun to walk around the beautiful campus and see all of the changes to the town . . . but it was insanely wonderful fun to surprise my friend!
I loved meeting her group of friends in Davidson, and her hubby (with some help) arranged a beautiful party for her. I learned that I CAN pick up the flat bottom of a brown paper grocery bag with my teeth--and without my knees or hands hitting the floor. This picture is my fab, forty-year-old friend proving that she's still got it.
Then, here's the kicker, her hubby sent us (our other roommate and her sister) to the Grove Park Inn for a little spa time. Delish! It's amazing what a little swimmin' around in a grotto filled with hot tubs and mineral baths will do for you! Plus, it started snowing on Sunday--real snow, not Mississippi snow--and we were outside in the steamy hot tubs with snow on our eyelashes.
The blizzard (well, it was a blizzard to a Mississippi gal) did make for a hairy-scary drive to the airport and lots of delayed flights and general travel chaos. But, I stayed in the zone being constantly reminded by my lavender spa-scented hair and sat on my grounded plane blissfully reading The Help (which is absolutely great).
So . . . . time well-spent. Now, reality is calling!
