Hot Springs holiday trip


I’ve shared some of the photos with you of our last trip to Hot Springs for the WinterTide exhibit at the Fine Arts Center. But I wanted to share a day in the life type of post with you. My husband is such a huge part of my photography – he and I travel together when we have the opportunity. Sometimes it is going to where he is working or where I am working and other times we venture off together to the unknown or known.

So the weekend of December 7 & 8 we were in Hot Springs, AR – one of our favorite places to visit. Here is a look into the 24 hours (not including sleep) of our trip!

We started out with the WinterTide exhibit attendance at the Fine Arts Center.

Then we went for an evening of dinner and entertainment at the Vienna. It is a live entertainment venue that was presenting a Christmas show that night. We were the odd couple in a room full of sorority ladies with their husbands that were one of the largest contributors to St. Jude Hospitals. Inspiring group. Our table was the odd man out group – a couple originally from Cuba, their friend, and two ladies that were friends with the owner. I also fell in love with the chandelier!

Early in the morning I snuck away while Hubby slept peacefully to get in a few shots of my favorite spring just across the street from our hotel, The Arlington. We took the rest of the day to venture out into Hot Springs and do some exploring of areas where we had not been before. We started with a quick trip up West Mountain and then heard of Garvan Gardens where they were hosting a holiday lights show.

At Garvan Gardens we found plenty of entertainment – lights, nature, music, and food!

All a very enjoyable and special 24 hours for my husband and I. We can’t wait to go back again and see what else we can find new to explore there!
