Life has gotten really busy and will continue to be really busy until New Year's, but I was able to escape early Friday (10/26/12) morning. 26 girls (including me) loaded into several vehicles and headed to Gatlinburg for a Mom's Retreat. Thankfully, I refrained from tearing up leaving my two favorite guys - I knew they would have a lot of fun together. Having some girl time was much needed and really fun, I haven't had that for a few years. Bed mates were drawn from hats so girls could step out of their comfort zone and get to know each other better. I had a great roommate. She was kind and sweet and it was fun getting to know her.
The view from the deck. I love Gatlinburg and being here in the fall is gorgeous! It was so fun admiring God's creation, getting rejuvenated, and making new friendships. Our cabin was Large - 4 floors and enough beds for 26 girls.
Living Room - I had big plans to sit in this room and blog and comment on blogs and surf the web, but we couldn't get the wifi to work

Pool Room - plus a hot tub right outside - I used neither of them.
Friday night we had dinner at a fun, delicious restaurant called The Pear and the Partridge - they had a cute room waiting on us
Friday night devotions
Saturday we had lunch at a great place called The Apple Barn
I got home about 2 pm on Sunday and my boys got home about an hour later and it was so good seeing both of them - Hudson was so excited to see me, which made me feel really good.
