I love traditions! Life can be so full of changes that holding on to a few things that we do year in and year out gives me the warm and fuzzies inside. One of these traditions is our annual Scrapbooking Retreat to Big Bear. Even though I am working, (my part time job as a Creative Memories Consultant) I look forward to this weekend so much. It is a jammed packed weekend of fun, food, friendships, fellowship, relaxation, projects and goals, oh did I mention food?
We stay at an amazing Bed & Breakfast called Apples. Barbara, her family & staff take such good care of us we never want to leave. For those of you that scrapbook you can understand how we can work around the clock for three days on our precious albums. If you aren't as hard core as some of us then you can take a break and head down to the lake, go shopping downtown, get a massage, take a nap, read a book, watch a movie, or just simply hang out. The weekend is all about YOU!
The food is all handmade with love by the amazing staff at Apples. They wait on you all weekend long. You never have to lift a hand. Oh, and don't plan on coming with any kind of diet agenda because you fail it in a big way! Their food is so delicious. In fact, they even came out with a cookbook you gotta have. Check it out here.
My favorite part of the weekend is getting to spend time with all my favorite gals and powering through like 75 pages. What more could a girl ask for?
