This month I escaped for a girls' weekend away at a quaint little a-frame located on Crystal Lake for two nights. With our crockpots, bottles of wine and records (yes records and a record player) in tow, we made our way north. We went big on this trip guys, with all the comforts you could ever need. The weather was freezing, as in seven degrees fahrenheit freezing. But, we managed to wander out along the lake and into the small town of Beulah (aka Ferris Beulah hehe).
We filled our crockpots with tasty concoctions each day, taking turns playing head chef. The menu featured veggie chili one evening and steel cut oats for another morning. Endless home-cooked meals (including to-die-for curry) filled our tummies and numerous bottles of wine washed everything down. For lunch one day we were feeling adventurous and made our way to Iron Fish Distillery for a couple of fancy cocktails and food-truck tacos. Each day we were also sure to get our fair share of crackers topped with goat cheese and jam thanks to Aldi :) I ate so much goat cheese it must have been bursting out of my ears.
A weekend void of obligations or the feeling of being rushed was so refreshing. Sometimes the only way to slow myself down and take a quick break is to travel someplace far away enough that I have no other choice!
