{Flourish} Retreat

Friends, I'm so excited to share some photos with you of my weekend away at the Flourish retreat. I was so thankful to have won a spot at this great getaway. It was refreshing. So much quality girl talk - new friendships - time to clear my mind and connect. Everyone should make their way to this retreat - it's SO worth it. 
It's also beautifully put together. The girls have such a sweet eye to make it so fun and inviting. 

The night we arrived, we had a strong storm roll through. Strong winds - near 60-70 mph in some areas, hail (though we didn't get hail thankfully), and power outages. A few girls got stuck on roads with trees down and others couldn't land at the airport, so had to re-route their travels, but thankfully we all made it eventually - and the weekend shined like a beautiful rainbow after the storm.

Candle light dinner the first night since the power was out all evening. We joked we got to know each other pretty well in the dark! Thankfully 3-4 hours later, the power kicked back on (with a LOUD kick I must say that caused all of us to scream and crack up laughing!). 

I enjoyed a foggy sunrise over the lake. 

 Quiet time and down time. My soul needed that. 

This lake house was also beautiful!

 Some of my new friends. We went to a cute downtown for lunch and antiquing on Saturday and a lady asked the 3 of us if we were sisters. It was a little funny since we just met a few days earlier, but we are soul sisters. I loved meeting new friends! 

 Sweet Emily (from The Anderson Crew blog). I loved more time with this girl. I enjoyed sweet conversations, heart to hearts, awesome food (that I could eat!) and time flourishing with her and each of the girls. Emily and KK started this awesome retreat a few years ago and this is their 7th retreat. I'm so thankful for their honest, open hearts to share this place and experience with so many other women. What a beautiful think they're doing! I'm thankful to be doing life with women like this. 

The ladies I enjoyed this experience with. So much beauty inside and out! 

This place was just gorgeous. I was on cloud 9 the whole time, surrounded by peace and beauty. Quietness, connectedness, and so much love.

My heart is filled with beauty, love, and is renewed. I pray wherever you are, you can find some quietness and renewal in your day too.
