On Monday, I packed up and set off for a quick biz trip to Woodstock. I didn’t know how I’d feel the first night away. I was nervous to leave my baby girl, but also excited to work in person with Kris Carr for the first time in many, many months (and have a few days off full-time mamahood). I gave Audrey a quick kiss on the head and hurried out the door before she could see me tear up.
Six hours, a couple green juices and a kombucha later, I arrived at Twin Gables B & B.
The next morning, I left downtown Woodstock and set off for a day at Crazy Sexy HQ.
Each morning I was greeted with a big glass of green juice. Kris and her husband make the best veggie juice on the planet. You know what else Kris makes? Superb sandwiches. In case you’re wondering, this magical sammie contained: sunflower sprouts, avocado, tempeh, heirloom tomatoes, and Vegenaise on Ezekial sprouted bread.
Kris’ hubs, Brian, found an injured butterfly in the driveway. We made friends and gave him a little watermelon snack.
I spent the second two nights at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary B & B. It’s charming, cozy, and surrounded by happy, rescued creatures.
We brainstormed, wrote like crazy, dreamed big (and then bigger), and when we had an EUREKA! moment, Kris jumped in the pool…with her clothes on.
It was a week of renewal, immense creativity, and lots of joy. I missed my little one, my husband and our Charm City rowhouse, but I knew that our reunion would here before I knew it. Those three days were a gift–something that I’ll always cherish.
And it’s just the beginning.
