Today kicks off a "Magical Memory Tour" of our first ReMe Retreat event (experience...retreat..life changing moments..what words truly fit?) where all of the founders of ReMe including myself, Jean Skipper, Penny Arrowood, and Theresa Zurku and even some of the students of our May event are sharing some of the wonderful memories that we made just a short month ago, so you can be a part of it all, too!
Each Monday in June we will be having a blog hop starting on the blogs of each of the participants then landing on our ReMe blog where you also have an opportunity to win a handmade goodie or treasure from our event. The giveaways will all be hosted on ReMe where you simply have to leave a comment to enter to win! Ez Peezy..right?
The smile on my face is saying I can not believe that after 2 years of planning, in only a few short hours we are about to embark on a journey of a lifetime. This shot was taken as I waited for my fellow partners in crime down in Whale Bone Junction Sunday morning prior to the event. We all caught up with each other there so we could finish of the last of our shopping and put the final details on all the necessities we needed to gather to make this the most memorable event our guests had ever experienced.
You can't help but to get excited about a journey when you are surrounded by sand dunes, water, and anticipation, right?? The Outer Banks is unlike any other place I've been..not that I've been tons of places, but I know we have a treasure of the world right in our back yard here in North Carolina.
As we all met, finished our shopping--it was time to head on the Hatteras ferry to Ocracoke. That part of the trip itself really set the tone for the week ahead...relaxing, inspiring, anticipatory, and full of pure joy and happiness. There was no doubt in my mind that we were on our way to create something magical between us...but at the same time, you can't help be just a little anxious. Would everyone get along? Would the event run smoothly? Would our guests be happy? Could we actually pull this off??
The answers lie ahead......stop by on the ReMe blog for the rest of the story and to enter to win an original painting of mine!
