It’s official summer according to the calendar and this Texas is looking forward to returning to visit the South this week, but praying for a return when I can head to La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa. La Torretta is located an hour outside of Houston and is a great getaway. The resort is kid friendly, but I would enjoy the 17,000 square foot Spa Terre after a busy day of frolicking and relaxing by the pool. A good friend’s birthday is in October who lives in Houston and this resort would be perfect for a weekend girlfriend getaway. Plus, it gives me a reason to come home and visit.
