Jackson 2014 Girlfriend Craft Getaway Recap Part 1

mybags

For last four years, I have an annual trip with my girlfriends up to Jackson New Hampshire to an amazing little Inn to craft and catch up with each other. I have an amazing husband who is always so supportive and makes it possible for me to be away for four days.  Last week before I left, I worked on all the prep work to ensure a smooth transition for my husband and my boys. It takes me a week to decide what projects I will work on and pack them.

dinnerI cooked several meals so that heat and serve would be an option for my husband.   I even enlisted the help of my slow-cooker to make a yummy chicken curry recipe to leave for Leao and the boys.

My girlfriend, Ashley drives up from Rhode Island and picks me up and we ride together to Jackson which can take about 3 hours.  We have fun talking and usually stop for a bathroom break and something to eat about half way there.

We were so proud that we were able to actually see out the back window this time. So we were thrilled with our ability to “bring less” this year!

Even though at this time of the year, I am anxiously awaiting spring, the beautiful winter wonderland is so welcome when we go to Jackson. I love the cozy feeling I get when I look out the window and see all the snow glisten and hear the fireplace crackling behind me.  It is truly magnificent.

viewThis trip is a four-day relaxing getaway that lets up all recharge before heading home to our busy lives. I look forward to reconnecting with everyone and some that I don’t see as much lately. We laugh, we work on our craft projects, have a few cocktails and just take in all the happy energy.

Over the next few days I will be breaking from my regular blog posts, and share more from this experience as well as some of the many projects I was able to complete. I hope you all are well and look forward to reconnecting with you.

Have a blessed day!
