VALLEY OF THE SUN RETREAT Feb 14-16 2020   News and Announcements

Started 10/31/19 by KSCarolyn; 172636 views.



At the airport waiting, bags were 43 and 47.5 lbs, darn, i could have packed more oranges!  No problem carrying on oranges, for those of you still waiting to go.  TSA got a ki CV k out of the trolls going thru the x ray machine. I took them on the carry on so they wouldn't get lost!  Now waiting to board making more scrunchies!       Great retreat this year everyone!




Thanks to all the hostesses and my secret sister for a great retreat!  Waiting for the plane, see you on the flip side!!

It's been 6 days and 121 posts! LOL!!! I'll not get caught up here...waiting to board tho so checking some out.

I really tried to consolidate my 3 bags into. Mishi even repacked some of it for me. Sadly the bohemith bag was 55 pounds. I just pulled a smaller bag out and carried it on. Waiting to board now. Just said bye to Suze she should be boarding her flight now too.

aaaaand, I'm home!

Thanks to everyone for the spectacular weekend!   To our hostesses, who always do such a tremendous job.  To my tablemates, Laura, Leeann, and Bobbie ... great conversations and companionship!   And to my Mystery Benefactor, the super secret sister ... you are delightful, whoever you are.

And to Bob .. you were so sweet to give us all Valentine's Day hearts and Tom got a good chuckle with your reply that you didn't need to wear red tights and a Devil's costume because you were wearing a Speedo underneath the dino costume.   Such a visual.  :-)

I am home.  Truck unloaded.  Loads to put away, but that will happen in stages.
Thanks to Patty Ennen, Viola Yoder, Sharon Armstrong, Shelley Rodgers, for helping with the charity sewing!
I so appreciate the help in putting these fabrics to work!

Time to rest for another year.

Home, safe, sound, and still enjoying the afterglow of one of my favorite weekends of the year!  These Retreats are so very special to all of us, and the efforts of the hostesses contribute greatly to making it that way.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed by being there, being a part of our group, and just being you!  I always say this when I come home from Retreat...."so glad to be home but can't wait until next year."

Yup it was nice to chat. We are in the van almost at daughters house. Taking her out for birthday celebration.
