WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

This weekend, I will be childless.

Leaving Friday afternoon.

Coming home Sunday.

I will have a weekend to myself. What is that like?

This will be the first in many, MANY years!

Our church is having their Womens Retreat, and I will be going!

I look forward to the fellowship, worship, Gods Word, and being refreshed as a wife and a mom.

I also look forward to the F.U.N.!!!!!

I will miss my family, and I KNOW they will miss me.

But, I won't be too far away. I love the town we're going to. In fact, this is very close by to where my husband and I got married (Monterey).

Look at where we'll be staying, and the views I will be forced to look at.

And yes..that is the ocean you see in the last picture. Just a hop, skip, and a jump away.

Have a wonderful time. We need to get away once in awhile with just other women and get refreshed! Enjoy the fellowship, God's Word and getting some "alone" time without the kiddos! I am jealous (although I was able to get away last month so I can't complain :-))

Kim said...

Have a wonderful, well deserved getaway!

Buckeroomama said...

Aw, have fun!! I'm still debating whether I should go with my parents on their weekend trip to our ancestral city (where I've never been!), but I don't think I can bear to be away from the kiddies that long. Maybe I'll do an overnighter and come home the next day...

Robyn said...

You are so fortunate! I would love to do something like that! Our women have an annual retreat but it tends to be the older ladies that go. I was invited before but couldn't afford it etc. Maybe one day!!!
Love Collette xxx

If there is anyone who deserves some time for herself, I believe it's you. I'm sure you will miss everyone, but it will be nice to getaway just for a short while. I hope you have an amazing weekend!

I just got back from my childless girls' getaway. It was heavenly. Although, I did sure love seeing my 16 month old run toward me when I got off the plane! Hope you have a blast at yours. : )

I'm all for Mom time! I try to do it once a year, some years it doesn't work out, but I enjoy it when I can!

JamericanSpice said...

Oh yes! You'll be delightfully forced to look at those wonderful views.

I hope you'll have a refreshing time at the retreat.

Our church has these and I wish I could go but no one to watch my children....maybe soon I'll get to go.

blueviolet said...

No wonder they call it a retreat! Faith and friends and God's majesty all in one!

Nina said...

Have a great time.... looks like a wonderful spot to have a retreat.
