I'm eagerly awaiting this weekend which will be spent with some of my favorite peoples. For several years now, a group of women from my family have been getting together for a time of fun, relaxation, encouragement, dessert, crafting, praying, and dancing. With life moving at such a fast pace and schedules keeping us so busy, this is something that's much needed. It's gotten a little more elaborate with each get together, and has evolved into themed "retreats," as we like to call them. This year we're holding it at my mom's new house and have a quilt theme, which means that we've been pulling out all of the quilts my Gangy and her mom, Granny, made. We'll be adorning the beds with handmade quilts, using quilted table runners, making a quilt craft, and putting Quilted Northern in all of the bathrooms. (Okay, maybe we're getting a little carried away) I can't wait to see everyone, and just take a break from the schedule to rejuvenate and laugh. And of course, it will all be documented with tons of pictures!
Looking forward to seeing you ladies!
