Retreats and other stuff

This past weekend I was in the company of some amazing women at a friend’s house in San Antonio.  We began our adventure on Thursday and departed on Sunday.  We shared several fabulous meals and a few adult beverages.  Most importantly we rejoiced in each others company!  We all have so much going on in our lives and sometimes it is just nice to settle down and let life roll by.

We also did some stitching but seems my camera never made it upstairs to the quilt room so I have no photos to share of the quilts.  One friend was working on the quilt for her daughter’s wedding in January.  Another friend shared how her daughter had planned to be married in their backyard and then it rained buckets – no problem – just move all of the living room furniture to the dining room and have the ceremony in the living room – the bride looks beautiful no matter what!  We shared tales of our children and grand-children and we tried to solve the worlds problems!  But mostly we just relaxed.

Here are a few photos from our weekend girls getaway.

I can vouch - this is a very tasty wine!

Love that wine?  How about that bottle?  Here is a great way to remember who gave it to you!

And here is a great way to display the empty bottles that you really enjoyed!

After our girls getaway I met hubby at the house – we made a few (ok more than a few) notes for the contractor.  As we left the development I had to capture the view – last nights sunset was fabulous!  We were eastbound on I-10 watching it set in the rearview mirror.  I even noticed a couple of westbound cars pulled over so they could photograph the awesomeness!

So – which photo do you like best?  1, 2 or 3?

Life is short, spend it with people you love, doing things you love and be sure to enjoy a simple sunrise or sunset whenever possible!
