mountain retreat…

Just returned from a wonderful retreat in the mountains with some of my favorite soul sisters on the planet. 8 of the 12 of us could attend this year. Our group has been meeting monthly and praying together for over well over 10 years. This weekend we shared majestic views, hysterical laughter, tears, prayers, delicious food and wine, great coffee, walks, shopping, and REST! Amen!

Saw this cross in the sky as we approached Blowing Rock, NC…knew it was going to be a wonderful weekend.

Hello peak weekend and gorgeous color! #noticinghisgoodness everywhere!

Another reminder that our Creator is truly the best artist of all… Discovered so many beautiful dahlias this weekend. Um, can you say painting inspiration?!!! Yes!

Can’t even explain what a blessing this sweet soul sister is… Visited this weekend with Sheri Furman, owner of Take Heart¬†(precious gift shop on Main Street) in Blowing Rock, N.C. And Saturday just happened to be her birthday! The light of Christ radiates like crazy through her words and actions AND her precious store. Our meeting years ago is another one of God cool orchestrated stories you just can’t make up. Loved seeing her again and all the wonderful women who work there. And of course tasting her amazing coconut birthday cake….was well, YUM!

Had a fun signing event with TERVIS again (our third year doing this in Blowing Rock) and I always love meeting customers and visiting with the wonderful people there. Thank you for having me!

Such an incredible devotion shared by Addison on Sunday morning. Such beautiful words and a wonderful way to end our amazing weekend in the mountains. Thank you, God for the retreat, for dear friends to share it all with, and for family back home keeping things running so this mama could rest.

Will be sharing pictures soon from our wonderful Handmade Equals Hope event benefitting Education Equals Hope. It far exceeded our expectations and we have so many to thank!

Blessings on your week! xo
