I am embarrassed that it has been so long since I have updated this blog. To say my life has been insane the past several months would be an understatement! I know you are checking the blog the daily for updates and are loosing sleep over my failure to update, right? Ha! Ha!
I am so excited to share with you a few highlights from the ETM Fall Retreat that was held October 9-12 in Saratoga Springs, Utah. This was the second retreat we held this year. I couldn't imagine that a second retreat could be any better then the first, but you know what? It was! I can't stop thinking about it!
We are fortunate to be able to hold Retreat at THIS amazing home in Saratoga Springs, Ut. The home owner, Suanna, has become one of my dearest friends. I could never say enough good things about her and am so grateful to her for being such a gracious host to this event!
The home is close to 10,000 square feet and includes enough bedrooms for guests to enjoy comfortable sleeping arrangements. The home also includes a large family room that we convert to our Scrap area, a theatre room, a game room, kitchens on each leval of the home and more! Yeah.. we know how to Scrap in style!
ETM guests are spoiled during this event. All meals are provided. We joke with our guests that they are not allowed in the kitchen! No worrying about preparing your own meal, or cleaning the kitchen afterwords. The amazing ETM staff has that covered!
ETM guests receive oodles and oodles of goodies through out the event. Goodies are left at each meal, they find treats on their beds at night, product is left in the scrap area and class kits are given each day!
Our guests enjoyed hours and hours of Scrap time. They were able to spread out their supplies and just leave them at the tables for three days coming back to their projects and not worrying about cleaning up each night. Scrapbook heaven!
We spend a lot of time in the theatre room laughing and sharing WAY to much information about each other. I love that ladies feel like they can be thereselves and truly relax. The only rule at retreat is that what is shared in the theatre room STAYS in the theatre room. :-)
One of my favorite memories from the Fall Retreat was our field trip up to Provo Canyon. We laughed and laughed in the car ride to and from the canyon, enjoyed a picnic lunch and most of all were in awe of the beautiful fall colors in the canyon!
While in the canyon, guests were also treated to official pictures of themselves. We all love taking photos of our families but very rarely are we behind the camera so I decided it was time for each of them to have beautiful photos of themselves!
We also had a photography lesson!
These retreats are a dream come true for me. I am so grateful for all of those who have supported the event. I still can't believe that we have held two this year and the Spring 2014 event is already sold out. It's crazy! I love every minute of the event and feel so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing women!
Stay tuned becuase many more AMAZING ETM Retreats are on the way!
