Thoughts on Squam

I am not sure I can yet put into words what this experience was. I know I walked away with a full heart and a renewed spirit. There was so much it was hard to take it all in and I know it will take a few days for me to process it all. There was the calm and quiet of the lake. So still that I could not help but become still along with it and take a deep breath, breathing in all of the goodness that surrounded me. I quietly set my intention for the next few days and we were off and running.

I picked Lorrie up at the airport Wednesday morning and we made our way to the lake. We had time to kill before registration so we took a tour around the lake. We were so busy chatting I am not sure we always knew where we were but it all worked out. We registered, found our cabin and settled in.

We got a good laugh out of our bedside reading material!

My bedside table...

Lorrie's bedside table...

We had the best cabin mates! Lots of conversation and laughter. Even a little booty shaking!

I could not have asked for a better group of women to share this experience with

I look forward to developing friendships and watching where we all go with our creative journey.

I will be back in a day or two to share the awesome classes I took and the art that came out of them.


  1. i can't wait to seeeeee!

  2. What a great post! I love that you included the pictures of our nightstands!! And that picture of Jen and Leah dancing just cracks me up all over again.

    You were such a great roomie!! Can't wait to do it again soon!


  3. Glad to hear you had a good time and that your creative spirit was renewed. I am looking forward to hearing further tales of your get away.

  4. I feel the same, it has been hard to put into words the Squam experience.. but there is a bit of magic going on there if you open up to it.
