Glamping Arkansas

In June I was invited along for a weekend of Glamour Camping. Being a girl who is a camper only by marriage I was a bit hesitant of camping without my husband (or really my Father-in-Law or Brother-in-Law), but I do like glamour and the sweet ladies of AR Women Bloggers so I decided to call on my inner Alison Chino and go along for the fun. I loaded my car full of fabric, snacks, all things pink, bug spray and my camera and headed towards Petit Jean. 

It was a spectacle of fabric and pretty things as we ascended on the yurts at Petit Jean State Park. We each unloaded our cars and took to decorating the bunks and surrounding area and even setting up a bucket toilet outside (what!?!).
The night ended with a yummy dinner and lots of chatting.
On Saturday we enjoyed breakfast at the Mather Lodge, a drive to a small mountain market and then a visit with Ms. Fern. Fern lives on the mountain and is truly a local treasure. She welcomed us to her adorable home and magnificent garden. She took time to show us around and as we walked and talked she put together the most amazing bouquet of freshly cut flowers. She offered words of wisdom and was truly a delight, I heart her.

Back at camp we had a little down time and enjoyed the cool breeze that came with a passing rain shower and then it was time to really do it up. We did some more decorating outside to prepare for a glamping photo shoot and another night of fun conversation, special drinks and good food.

Then as quickly as it came it was time to pack up the fabric and garlands and head back to the real world, which is much less pink in my case.
I am thankful for this fun weekend and the ladies I got to share it with.
