Promontory was all about mommies last weekend, and I must say it was the most extravagant Mother’s Day I have ever experienced. Our club is home to so many wonderful, accomplished moms, and they were certainly pampered to the max.
The celebrations began with a restorative, rejuvenating yoga practice at the Art Silo on Saturday morning. Tami and Sue led the class as a team. Sue did an amazing job playing the harmonica, which provided a soothing soundtrack. After the session, all the participants relaxed and enjoyed some mom time over light refreshments.
After waking to the most beautiful bouquet of tulips from Jack and Katie on Sunday, Steve treated us all to a special Mother’s Day brunch at The Hearth. I love how Promontory creates so many ways for families to gather and celebrate each other amongst other members. The buffet-style brunch had abundant options from fresh seafood to meat to pancakes and omelets made to order. We pretty much ate three meals in one! Steve enjoyed the Littleneck Clams and Snowcrab Legs – a rare offering in Utah! Then he moved on to smoked salmon and brought back a charcuterie and cheese platter for us all to share. For his entrée, he feasted on the glazed ham with rosemary-raisin glaze while Jack dove into the slow roasted prime rib with creamy horseradish and au jus. Katie opted for the kid’s buffet, which offered corn dogs, chicken fingers, and really yummy mac and cheese. As for me, I was still in breakfast mode. The eggs benedict was a super creative version that featured a potato pancake, poached egg, smoked chicken, and asparagus. I also tried some sinfully delicious cinnamon-battered French Toast with raspberry sauce. We concluded by sharing some dessert samples from the buffet – fresh fruit tartlets, white chocolate praline bread pudding, and lemon bars. I must confess that the bread pudding was my favorite part of the meal…so much for Saturday’s yoga class!
While we indulged in this decadent meal, I managed to work in some serious discussion with Steve and the kids about my drive to get back to work. Now that we are settled in Park City, I have time to return to my career as an interior designer, which was quite fulfilling in Laguna Beach. Living amongst so many spectacular Promontory homes and having the opportunity to tour a couple of them recently reignited my creative spark. I’m on fire with ideas for how to transfer my experience decorating beach estates to the mountains, especially since all the newer homes are so contemporary and fresh.
I had a chance to visit another Nicklaus Villa currently under construction, and the lucky family who purchases this stunning, furnished home will get to have us as their neighbors. This developer-built home will feature swanky, yet comfortable furnishings. Plus, the fact that this home is already started makes it so hassle free and they’ll move in much quicker than a full custom build. It’ll be great to enjoy as a highly coveted Park City second home. Owners will love beginning their days with sun pouring into expansive windows and unwinding over a late afternoon cocktail on the back porch overlooking the 8th and 9th holes of the famed Jack Nicklaus Painted Valley Golf Course. The Nicklaus Villas are the perfect blend of contemporary design inspired by the natural elements of the mountains. Check out this Villa I just explored.
I’m excited to have my family’s support as I dive back into my interior design passion. Living in the mountains has created a whole new level of inspiration. As I meet more Promontory members, I hope to have the privilege of helping them realize their visions for their homes.
