Good company and some knitting is all I need

Staying a couple days in a really nice place doesn't hurt. I have forgotten to post about our weekend away. 

We had a great time at Château Élan. We got there Friday afternoon and stayed until Sunday morning. The first night we had dinner at Versailles, one of the seven restaurants at the inn. The next day we went to the spa and then celebrated St. Patricks at the Irish Pub inside the resort. On Sunday, we walked around the gardens and then headed back home. The food was amazing, the spa treatments awesome and having some couple time was priceless. The icing on the cake: I had time to knit! I borrowed the book Vintage Modern Knits from the library and cast on the Madeleine shawl. I adore most of the patterns in this book. I am definitely buying it. Of course, I will check it out at (Thanks for the tip Andi.).

I have yet taken any pictures of my shawl. But here are some pictures of our trip.

I would go back to Château Élan without hesitation. But being home with my family and friends is what I want at the end of the day. All I need is good company (and some knitting).

Have a wonderful week. Don't forget to stop to smell the roses.
