. . . ok, so not really! Today was a wonderful break from the mundane work of cabinet designs, marble specifications, and endless phone calls from Project Managers. As most of you already know, I'm a designer for a custom home builder in Newport and part of my job is to keep up to date on the latest and greatest in home design. Lucky for me, this meant that I got to attend the Kohler Conference at the St. Regis Resort in Monarch Beach, to see what new product they will soon be introducing to the trade. The presentation consisted of the newest stylings from The Kohler Company.
After the conference and a wonderful catered lunch, the guests were invited to participate in an activity of their choosing: Golf or a Spa treatment. You'll never guess what I chose. Okay, I lied. What a wonderful treat. The St. Regis Spa is absolutely amazing. After arriving and slipping into a comfy robe and pair of slippers, I stepped into the Aroma Sauna with a book and a cold beverage and prepared myself for my massage with some relaxation and meditation. For my spa treatment I decided on the 60 minute Mediterranean massage. It was AMAZING! My masseuse was highly skilled in the art and thank goodness, because my back and neck were tied up in all sorts of knots.
After my massage they invited me to unwind by a glowing fire in their relaxation room, sip a glass of champaign (I opted for the lemon water) and just enjoy the ocean view. I couldn't help but lay there on my chaise and count my many blessings. I mean, some days I feel like I complain so much. I complain about my job. I complain about my lack of time. I complain about my eternal singledom. Ok, thats enough... and then a day like this comes along and I am reminded that life is good. Sometimes, really good!
