The Weekend


It was sew fun.

Like spending a weekend in Mayberry,
without Barney and Aunt Bea.

We stayed in this house.



Meg and Kim were the ultimate hostesses.
They put their hearts and souls into everything they did.

The decorations.


The food.



The crafts.

Even the bedrooms were beautiful.

When you attend a creative weekend with 15 strangers,
you don't know what to expect.

Will there be an annoying person?
Will there be awkward silences?
Will you fit in?

All I can tell you is this,
if you ever get a chance to
take a break from home,
and create,
just do it.

It's worth every dime.

You will return home
renewed.

And you will make 15 new friends,
that you will miss,
the moment you walk out the door.


Thank you Meg, Kim and Ashley.
It was magical.

Love the photo on the front porch! It looks like so much fun...one day I'll be back and able to do that! I'm really into those pennant banners lately. I've been making them and hanging them in the girls room and for birthdays. Love them in all the pictures here!
