squam lake retreat

first of all the lights are back on at good manor, they came back on last night at 6pm..yippee! no back to bizness!
how do i start to tell you about last weekend?? i have been to many retreats in the past years and i have my favorites, but this past retreat is fast nudging its way to the top of the list....
i can only describe the surroundings as straight from the movie"dirty dancing"...the camp was so so so pristine and clean, clean ,clean..i am not a camper and couldnt see myself staying in a rustic cabin with no heating or air conditioning but these cabins were just that but so so so much more...the cabins were very very charming. every cabin had their own view of the crystal clean squam lake and their own private dock..the night air was crisp and cool and perfect for sweatshirts and warm uggs and i cannot wait until next year to stay there with my girls.....

i met some new amazing gals at this retreat that i know will become life long friendships and i also reconnected with old friends that i met in our blogging community...



many of these pictures were from our personal photographer-sharon andrews

besides being the bestest friend and fabulous artist, she also takes the most brilliant photos!

I'm glad things are getting back to normal after the crazy weather! I really wanted to go to Squam- it sounded like it would be right up my alley. Perhaps next year!
