Sad to say this past retreat may possibly be my last big retreat.  Time to take a break.  I have one more child at home for only one more year before she moves on to another adventure in her life.  Just wanted to eliminate anything extra in my life so I could spend as much time with her.

These last seven years hosting retreats have been absolutely amazing!  I have met the best ladies ever.  You all have been so supportive and kind to me.  I never imagined what these retreats would have turned into.  After my first year of hosting day-only scrapbook events, I wanted to have an overnighter and thought I would never be able to get enough ladies to come.  Well, six years later, I have a following of 50-100 ladies at each retreat.  Every time it just amazed me . . . you all just kept coming again and again.  THANK YOU so much.

I do want to say that the best compliment I ever received about my retreats was how nice the ladies are who come to my retreats.  It is so true.  You all have been so fun to be with and I know some of you have gained great friendships with each other.

At the Mustache Mania retreat, the ladies had this picture frame made for me.  (Which I now have hanging on the wall above my desk at home that I get to admire everyday!)  Everyone at the retreat signed it and said some very nice things.  They also gave me a gift certificate to a sushi restaurant (which is my favorite).

I can't go without giving Julie a huge thank you for all the help she has given me over the years.  She was always there to help me get set up in the mornings the day of the retreat and always very willing to help with whatever else I needed.  She always just went along with the ride at all the silly costumes I asked her to wear to help make the retreats fun!  She is one of my best friends and I love her dearly.

I love you all and thank you for the great memories!


Once again we had another fun retreat!  Thanks ladies!!
