Time flies when you're having fun!!!
I just returned from my mini-vacation outside Montery, CA! It was absolutely wonderful! The Seasoned Survivor CJ Group united for the first time as one for a weekend of PJ's, Chocolate and Creating!
It meant so much to me to match the CJ's with the actual people behind them! Listening to their voices instead of wondering what they sound like from an email was fun, fun fun!! They were way more fun, way more creative and way more "real people" than I was expecting! (Although I'm not sure what I was expecting!) From the minute Debbie picked me up at the airport to when I meet them all at Cranberry Hill, I thought I knew them forever!!
My adventure began when I left work on Friday around noon and got an unexpected ride to the airport from a co-worker! The plane was delayed because of mechanical problems and I thought I was going to pass out with lack of fresh air when they turned off the A/C for 1/2 hour, but eventually I touched down in CA and everything got happier!! And when Toni and I landed at the beach house and called dibs on the master with the ocean view, things got even better!!!
Saturday I woke up to the cool breeze from the door, realized I was at the beach and couldn't sleep another wink! The day was PACKED (and I mean packed) with scrapbook and craft classes taught by all the talented ladies in the house! We went from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. with strategic breaks out on the beach! I learned so much and brought so much home to finish too! During that time we were fortunate enough to shoot a few group photos! I'll get those posted as soon as they are available! It was an awesome day!
On Sunday we spent some relaxing time in Monterey. I was able to meet up with my dear friend Sandra and she gave me an awesome tour of the town and the hotels! And the topper was the awesome dinner that her husband cooked! Monday we moved from the beach house to MJ's house in San Jose and relaxed by the pool making lavender wands! And before I knew it, I was back at the airport headed home once again! It all went by so fast!
It sounds like everyone else had an awesome time too and they want to make this an annual event! Won't that be fun!!! I'll be back later with some photos once I download them!!
