If you’ve been reading LL for any amount of time, you’ll know that I really dislike writing recaps.  It’s like pulling teeth.  And I like my teeth.

So instead, I usually just dump a bunch of pictures into a post and let THEM tell the story.  Luckily I have a husband whose (expensive) hobby is photography.  Without him and his snapping skills, I would be lost (AND I’d have to write).  I’m so fortunate – thank you, Travis!!

There are SO many pictures – this is a mere snippet!  Today’s images are from Thursday and Friday….Monday will be Saturday and Sunday.

I hope you enjoy reading with your eyes and it makes you want to come to next year’s retreat (May 15th-17th in Boulder, CO)!Take it away, pictures!

    Pictures always are my favorite because they can tell more about an event than any amount of words. These (and the day 2) are simply fabulous and thank you again for such a fabulous weekend!! <3

  2. Katie @ Talk Less, Say More says:

    All these photos make me so happy! They also make me laugh…clearly I’ve got quite a few animated faces – from looking like i’m giving someone an evil eye to be REALLY excited about something. I wonder what I was talking about? ;)

  3. Calee says:

    So sad I missed out! Getting warm fuzzies just checking out the pix. Thanks to Travis again for taking great pix. And BIG thanks to the three lovely ladies who put this together! Here’s hoping I can make it next year. It helps that it’ll be closer to me. I couldn’t afford to do Blend this year, but the tradeoff is that I get 1.5 months off of work and school and everything!
