Oh my word.

This past weekend was amazing.

My body is SO sore.

My mind is still racing.

My heart is a little sad that it’s over.  We spent a better part of 10 months planning this Retreat and now it’s over.  Bittersweet for sure.

But right now, in these afterglow moments, I simply don’t want to be at my computer.  No emails today.  No talk of caterers or sponsors or attendee shirt sizes.  All I want to do is sit here on the couch with my pajama-footed children and eat marshmallows by the handful and watch Sleeping Beauty 5 times in a row.


I know you’ll understand.

Recap post coming.  Be ready for picture overload.

    agreed so much on this post. so many adventures to post about.

    thank you SO SO SO SO SO SO SO (insert a million more “so”s) for putting this together again. i can’t imagine how much work goes into it, though i’ve planned events for work, and those aren’t much fun to plan.

    can’t wait to see all travis’s photos.

    You are such a beautiful lady with a big heart – it was so great to meet you this weekend. You deserve several marshmallow, kiddos in PJs, Sleeping Beauty marathon days. I can only begin to imagine the amount of heart and soul and work you three poured into putting on such an amazing weekend. We (the Blends) are so lucky to have you in our lives!

    Sore? Tired? Whatever could be the cause of that?! Lol! Thank you so much for all of your hardwork pulling this together. You ladies rock my socks off and I will never be able to express how grateful I am to you all for giving us an opportunity for the fun, fitness, and friendship that embodies Blend!

    Awww, marshmallows AND Sleeping Beauty?! Can I come over?? ;) I don’t blame you for taking off…you deserve it! You ladies put on one rocking weekend for sure! Thank you so SO much for everything! I am still amazed at how MUCH there was this year as opposed to last…the sponsor contribution AND interaction, the venue, the swag, the PHOTO BOOTH?!?! Amazing!!!
