Southern Circle Retreats...the First!

We had an amazing weekend...the 10 of us.  It was a perfect mix of people, of creativeness, of projects, of food, of gathering time, of hearts....

 Serenbe Lake House will be the location for retreats to come.  It had enough charm and space to keep us all captivated and never want to leave.

Each room is thoughtfully decorated.  Of course our little surprises on the beds throughout the weekend made the rooms even more charming!

Friday night's activity....a sketchbox

Saturday's project....a completed painting


Saturday night's project.....vintage hankie art

 Inspiration was scattered for all to enjoy..

Saturday's dinner....complete with a birthday surprise for Gretchen.  And tears by Tiffin and I.  Tears of complete and utter joy that is.  That's what happens when you put your whole heart into something.  We're pretty sure the attendees could tell.  We didn't leave out any detail. 

Oh the goodies our new friends shared with one another....kindness abounded this weekend

The Farmhouse delighted our bellies with scrumptious breakfasts

Here's the first Southern Circle creative gals....Lesley and  Lisa from Germantown, TN; Gretchen from Gulfport, MS; Cindy from Nashville, TN; Heidi from Birmingham, AL; Melissa from Loganville, GA; Tiffin from Peachtree City, GA; Reagan from Marietta, GA, Jenni from Newnan, GA and Gail from Newnan, GA.

So here we all are...on our way home. It was the perfect number for the house and perfect number for our creative projects.  Maybe we could wiggle up to 14.  The one comment that seemed to echo amongst the group....we all needed another day.  We are already working on just that. 

So keep watching our personal blogs and facebook pages.  We'll be announcing the next Southern Circle Retreat soon!
