What a whirlwind it has been the last month or so. It has culminated in these last few crazy days when we have been shuffling furniture, equipment, products, and linens from one historic house to another. As we draw to a close this evening, we have been reflecting on just what our little home at 577 East Main Street has meant to us. It’s really where my dream started. I wanted to open my own spa. I wanted it to be a place that was peaceful, where you could escape the hustle and bustle of the day. A refuge of sorts for all my people. The house we picked was quirky and pretty, calm and peaceful. It has been an anchor all these years not just for me, but for all the people who work there. We have built quite the little family and although a few people have come and gone- they always know that they can come home for a visit anytime.
I am excited to be starting in a new place and I think the changes we have made will thrill you. We have so much more space for everything. It is a little bittersweet looking back though; as we close one door, we open a new one.

I’ll miss the crooked door frames, the squeaks in the floor, the tricky lock on the front door. I’ll miss the way it smells after years of spa services. I’ll miss the scalding hot water tap (well, maybe not that so much.)
But my bags are packed, I’m ready to go.
We will see you tomorrow at 361 East Main Street.
