Depending on when she gets here, we’ll probably venture into Chapel Hill for the Music on the Front Porch Series at the Carolina Inn. This is one of our favorite things to do on a Friday evening in the summer, and we treat our guests to it every chance we get. Then, a nice walk to town to grab a bite to eat is a great way to end the evening.
Tomorrow is all about relaxing and being pampered. We’ll start with pedicures, then move next door to have massages and facials. I’ve never had a facial so this will be quite the treat. We both deserve a day of relaxation after the busy spring we’ve had. Then, Saturday evening, I’ve invited some friends over to sit on the back porch, have some wine, and enjoy the evening.
Sunday…well, we have no definite plans, but I’m pretty sure we’ll wind up in my studio for at least part of the day.
