First of all, I mixed up Lindsey and Carl III's birth dates! Sorry guys! I am really excited and focusing all my energy and thoughts on this weekend's Great Big Dreams Retreat! I attended one of Christine Kane's retreats in October of 2007. It was an amazing experience for me. A variety of "lessons" are presented. Participants can engage as much or as little as they wish. I will attend a Saturday morning Yoga class and create a vision board in the afternoon. Christine performs an informal concert on Saturday night and her music speaks to me!!! There is plenty of time for reflection and meditation. It takes place at Bend of Ivy Lodge in Marshall, NC just outside of Asheville. I am getting a massage by one of the best massage therapists I have ever experienced! Participants have the option of arriving on Thursday and staying until Monday. The retreat officially starts at 2:00 on Friday afternoon. On Thursday, after having a little medical procedure whereby they stick a camera in you and look around, I will be heading to Asheville!!! Instead of staying in the lodge this time, I am staying in one of the cabins on the property. I am a little nervous because it is rustic and I am a chicken!!! My word this year is courage, so think of me out in the woods in a cabin by myself. Did I mention I am a little afraid of pitch black dark? and walking the trail at night to the cabin! Packing will be easy, it's all comfort all the way, baby and I AM packing "the Ugly hat". Me and the car are staying as far away from that wretched hill as possible! I am so looking forward to this trip. Everyone have a lovely weekend, I'm planning on it for myself!
