I am so late with my blog post this past week, but I have a really good excuse for it! This past weekend I was fortunate enough to spend 3 days away with a great group of friends. In my mind, this is the best present a girl can get- better than diamonds, any day!!
We shopped, we worked out, we dined, we drank , and of course we crafted! Our little get away started 8 years ago as a weekend to get a jump start on shopping and to design and make our Holiday cards. We had so much fun, that the core group of us have made it back every year (and looking forward to next year!).
Perhaps the best part of the weekend, though are the heart to heart talks. We cover any range of subject matter, and we laugh (and cry sometimes), but we always leave feeling refreshed, re-energized, and we know that we always have each other to count on. I tell you, there is no better feeling in the world!!
So, if you don’t have a group of “besties”, make some quick! and if you do- grab them and schedule a get away weekend. Don’t let kids, husbands, jobs, etc get in the way! You spend energy on them 362 days of the year, so take those 3 other days for yourself and your friends. Your attitude will be uplifted and your family will thank you for it, I promise!!
