I found The Springwater Bed & Breakfast on good ol' google and it's reviews were amazing and, after the shortest while, I knew it was the place to be.
I wanted somewhere local, that was the perfect combination of cozy and dreamy, with an amazing breakfast included, and boy did we get it. Would you believe this was my first time staying at a real life bed & breakfast? I questioned if I should even put my shoes on to go downstairs for breakfast (Don't worry, I did.) I need to find the secret list of rules for B&Bs.
Can you even handle this bathroom?
No. You can't.
We curled up, fire going, and watched St. Vincent in bed. Please watch this move immediately. Thank you. Do you know what it's like for two mamas to be sans 10 (almost 11) kids for a solid stretch of time? Oh it's good. Real good. I slept so good I woke up with the sleep lines across my face. I don't get them ever really, since "deep-drooling-sleep" is no longer in my dictionary with children who love to bust in every hour on the hour, but I got them here alright. Yes I sleep with makeup on. I wish I could say it's a secret to great skin but I'm just lazy... and still waiting on great skin.
What a gift it is for them to meet so many different people from so many different walks of life. To prepare their food and hear stories collide together over breakfast. It's holy ground, really. To have them come back one more time and fill you in on their latest travels, how big their children have gotten, what their new job is, and favorite pass times. They'll request that favorite breakfast you made that one time, a couple years back. Oh, it's dreamy.
Breakfast was delicious and they even brought out a birthday scone for the birthday girl. You know I'm still thinking about the breakfast potatoes and fresh grapefruit juice.
Springwater B&B, you did us so good. Until next time..
