Annual Girls Trip Recap

Well hello my friends. I hope you are well today. It’s quite gloomy outside but inside I am feeling happy. I just arrived home Sunday night from my annual girlfriend weekend and boy is it good for the soul. I left Thursday morning and rode up with my friend who doesn’t mind the long drive. It’s always fun because we get caught up on each other’s lives and before we know it we are almost there. But our first stop is to this lovely cafe that serves the yummiest sandwiches and then when our bellies are full we ride the final 10 minutes to the Inn. I never tire watching all of the mountain views as we get closer to our destination.

This year was our 10th anniversary having this trip and when we arrived they had a fabulous spread that included a chocolate fountain with yummy fruit to dip in it.

I took the time to enjoy a massage right at the inn. I always put off getting them throughout the year but I think this year I am going to change that and try to incorporate it. Maybe one every other month because the knots and tension in my shoulders are no joke!

I worked on loads of card-making projects breaking out many new stamps and inks and then I even spent some time coloring in one of my new coloring books.

I tested out new techniques and played with new stamps. It was productive and fun to relax and play with my supplies uninterrupted.

The food and service at the Inn were amazing as usual. Once again I was spoiled by the staff when it came to breakfast options!

The ladies are so talented in so many areas. Two of my friends are amazing quilters and there was a lot of oooo and aaah going on all weekend as we pawed all of there pretty creations.

My friend Pam and I had been discussing her beautiful quilts and I asked her if she had time, if she could make me one. Well she brought the finished product to give to me on our trip and let me tell you, I am over the moon! I told her the colors I like and that I like hummingbirds. She made the most amazing quilt for me. She had it wrapped in a matching pillowcase. I couldn’t stop talking about it while I was there. Ok, maybe a little bragging! But it’s so beautiful. I even took it out and sat by the fireplace with my current read and broke it in. I am so grateful and feel blessed to have such a generous friend to lend her talent to make me something so special.  I know I am going to get a lot of use out of this quilt.

I broke in my quilt with a fireside reading session. I look forward to many hours with this beauty!

My friend Pam was a productive one this weekend. This is a wall hanging she made while we were there. It’s even more beautiful in person.

I stayed up later than I normally do to hang out but then each night I had a date with my book and fireplace. Unfortunately, most nights I didn’t read very far before I would fall asleep.

Kathryn made t-shirts to help us celebrate reaching 10 years of our creative escape!

Overall another successful trip and l look forward to the fun next year.
