I’ve been dreaming about a spa retreat for months now, and I’ve been saving my allowance. (No, seriously, the husband and I get an ‘allowance’ – that way we don’t feel guilty when we buy silly little – or big – things that are purely for our own enjoyment. It works pretty well for us.)
After doing some research, I finally booked a trip to Berkeley Springs, WV. It is less than 2 hours away, and it is, well, pretty cheap. I expect it to be a ‘quaint’ and ‘rustic’ trip – not quite the 5-star pampering I first imagined in a spa retreat – but I think it’ll be a nice break. You know, from my hectic life of … working 8 hours a day. With no kids. And minimal housework (that’s what cleaning ladies are for!) And plenty of free time to knit and stuff. But, whatever. Even the spoiled deserve some, uh, spoiling …
The 4th of July holiday is soon arriving, and that is when my solo adventure starts. I’ve booked a ‘charming’ room in a B&B, complete with ‘gourmet’ breakfasts and an ‘opulent’ dinner. And don’t forget the claw-foot tub! I’ve booked a mani/pedi at tripadvisor‘s second rated Berkeley Springs spa. And I’ve booked a half spa day at tripadvisor’s highest rated spa.
All for the same price as a day at a spa in northern Virginia. Plus, I get several blocks of cute shops to spend (what remains of my) allowance in!
Happy 4th, everyone!
