A couple of weeks ago Kaitlin and I went to Excelsior Springs, Mo (just outside of Kansas City). I taught two days and Kaitlin took a class by Jane Davies. We both had a chance to experience their amazing spa and enjoyed great food too. I normally fly to these teaching gigs but Kansas City is only about a 7 hour drive from my house in Roland, AR.
On our way back we stopped by my cousin's place, The Antique Flea in darling Noel, Mo. Such a beautiful little town nestled in the hills and the Elk River. I'm hoping to go back this summer to do a little fishing and painting with both my cousins Doug and Zac. The shop is filled with loads of art, lots of antiques, and the best hamburgers I ever ate.
