i spent this last weekend on a spontaneous girls retreat. a dear friend of mine is going through some man-troubles and requested a remote get-away with lots of hikes, wine and laughter to help clear her head. always happy to oblige (and be spontaneous), i eagerly signed up.
it was so nice to get away and just be. between all the traveling and the mounds of stress from work and life- i needed this little trip. i needed to not only be there with her to help her mash out the details, but i also needed to be there for myself & for my own reasons. i'd love to say the weekend helped me to get out of my head- but if anything, i really used the time for reflection and the opportunity to ask my own questions. which as it turns out, was exactly what i needed.
