Last weekend’s retreat went BEAUTIFULLY–pun intended 🙂 The retreat’s theme was “Beloved,” and all of the talks were centered around learning to let God love us, how to realize and offer to others the beauty of our hearts (which is God), and how to let God romance our hearts as women. It was a peaceful, relaxed weekend and retreat. We really focused on making this retreat fun, prayerful and “laid back” for the girls. And it was. 🙂
A special treat was having our church’s priest, Fr. Vincent, drive 1 1/2 hours to the beach house just to say mass for us…on the beach! (Bucket list item #59: Attend extremely moving and beautiful mass on the beach. Check.)
Another HUGE treat was getting to have Michael and Gabriel come up and spend Sunday afternoon at the beach after the girls left to go back home!
Gabriel eating at the picnic table on the porch! He LOVED it.
