As in many areas, Christmas holiday preparations are in full swing in these parts. For us, that means we're just about to close for three weeks at Green Mountain. It's exciting not only because we'll have some down time, but also because it's the time we do a lot of renovations. And this year we're undertaking some big changes to spiff up our warm and cozy retreat, to make it even better, just as the women who come to us deserve. It's also a good time to think about coming to Green Mountain, which is so much more than an adult weight loss camp. We've got our end-of-year special going. Get 25% off any stay in 2011! Sign up by midnight on December 31.
Have a great weekend!
