Last night was officially the third little retreat – and now that I’ve hosted three, I’ve decided my favorite part is watching people discover new things. Whether it’s a new friend, a new skill, or tasting a new food — I thoroughly enjoy listening to the conversations or observing strangers who become friends, and witnessing these experiences.
Last night, we started the evening with an herbal tea bar, one of my favorite details. Gygi Koster was our beautiful teacher for an hour of yoga and meditation. Shelby Russell spoke to us about multiple ideas to eat healthy and to invest in taking care of our bodies – mentally, physically and spiritually. Kitchen eighty-eight provided delicious food, and the guests brought all the life to the event.
Thank you. Thank you to everyone who participates – whether you teach, cook, plan, prepare, or come to enjoy the evening. Thank you for doing so. I admire the brave souls who don’t know anyone at the retreat but come solo to mingle, I cherish the sweet friends who come every time – I cannot put into words how tenderly I appreciate your support. It truly means the world to me, to have all of you in my home and to have the opportunity to get to know each of you better.
