Squam is held at a beautiful camp on Squam Lake just outside of Holderness, New Hampshire. It's that kind of camp you remember from your childhood, with slamming screen doors and twisty, pine needle-covered paths through the woods, with the sound of water lapping against the docks and the smell of burning wood in the fireplaces. I thought that this, my second year, would be different than the first, but it wasn't really. The weekend was absolutely as lovely as last year, it just felt more comfortable–like that cozy go-to sweater you always choose first out of your closet.
I rediscovered magic on the docks.
and charmed by the quaint vignettes.
I reveled in the camaraderie around the fire,and found doors opening onto new opportunities and possibilities.The bursts of creativity everywhere you looked always made me smile.
I found a place to tell stories and laugh with dear friends I absolutely adore.
Each sachet is printed with a word (quiet* woods* light*). I think I may just sleep with 10 of them under my pillow so I can forget about that list of things to do and dream about Squam during the blissful hours of sleep I manage to get.
Elizabeth and Michelle have kindly allowed me to offer a special to my readers. Every person who purchases a sachet this weekend is eligible to win a bonus sachet for free. The winner of the additional sachet will be surprised when they open their package and find a lovely extra! Feeling lucky today?
