It is always so good to spend time with my best girlfriend. I’ll try not to gush on and on today about how lucky I am to have a friend like Katie: but it’s true. It’s once in a lifetime. It’s amazing. It is even more awesome when your parents play babysitter and you get to have a justustwo day out! We hit up Hot Springs, trying to take in all the town had to offer. Since my last visit, the city feels a lot more cleaned up. It feels livelier. I hope it continues on as a come back kid, because Arkansas, the Natural State, has really surprised me in it’s splendor. It truly is a beautiful area with rich history.
Our journey started at the Arlington Hotel, built in 1924. We grabbed our first pumpkin-lovin lattes of the season and enjoyed exploring the building.
I loved the touches of history, like the mineral water fountain in the lobby. People came to Hot Springs searching for their own fountain of youth in the healing waters.
The elevators were gorgeous, and I am adding a letter box onto my future home MUST have list!
I am always up for a wander on my own, but doing it with Katie at my side makes it all the better! Onward we go to the Fordyce Bath House Museum. You can catch up with us there on this coming Monday;) Have a great week until then! Don’t forget to think about your HAPPY for this week~ it’s week 40 in 2015~ oh my, how the time does fly!
