My girls and I tried all summer long to try to schedule a girls weekend. We’re four busy ladies, and before we knew it, our chance to do something was slipping away — school would be starting soon, fall was on the horizon.

Little did we know the perfect solution was essentially in our back yard (well, if our backyard was Conover, NC): Rock Barn Resort & Spa. We packed into my trusty mini-van on a Friday, and just about an hour later, arrived at the resort off I-40.

We stayed on site in an incredibly swank luxury town home and quickly got to decompressing.

We spent an entire day lounging by the mineral pool, drinking fancy drinks and noshing. I caught up on at least two months worth of magazine reading (including an incredibly powerful article by Paige Williams in Oprah that everyone took turns reading and crying about). We got pedicures and wrapped up our day of relaxing with a dip in the hot tub on the patio.

It was a short trip, but one packed with laughs, good food, good friends and an incredible chance to unplug and relax. I can’t wait to hop on over to the Rock Barn again. Soon.
