It is hard to believe that this last week marks the 5th Express the Moment Retreat. I remember this event simply being a dream that I thought would never become a reality. With each event, I am reminded that DREAMS really do come true!
As I think about the past five events, my mind turns to all of the amazing ladies that have attended each event. This last week, I counted five of the women that have attended all five events. The rest of the events have been filled with women who have been to 3-4 of them or are there for the first time. I am always amazed with how each group of ladies connect with each other and leave the event as life long friends!

I absolutely love each of these group photos. Each reminds me of that particular event and just how amazing each and every one of these ladies are. Each of us have our own story to tell. We all come from different backgrounds. We come together as Sisters and then return home to our individual lives. There is a very sacred bond between each of these ladies.
After each retreat I am asked by co-workers, friends and neighbors about the event and I find it hard to describe just how amazing it is!
This event is the ultimate Scrapbooking Retreat. This event includes lodging in the most beautiful home located in Saratoga Springs, Utah right along Utah Lake. My staff spends hours in the kitchen creating the most delicious meals for each day. My Sister Jen is the head chef and prefers me to NOT give my input when it comes to the cooking. She is much better at it then I am! Guests are spoiled with endless product and goodies including handmade items and little surprises from their assigned secret sister.
We spend countless hours in the theater room laughing so hard our stomachs hurt. Our Retreat Motto is "What happens in the theater room... stays in the theater room" and it couldn't be more true! It is a safe place where ladies can be their selves and know that NOTHING leaves that room.
Sadly the week comes to an end. No matter how hard we tell ourselves we are not going to cry... we do. We are sad to leave our Soul Sista's but know that each of us always carry each other in our hearts.
To say that I am grateful would be an understatement. Set aside the amazing business opportunity this has become for myself and my family... non of that matters... I continue to this event because it has become my saving grace. It seems like each time this event draws near it is at the EXACT time that I need a bit of an escape from working full time... (yes I have a full time job) .. escape from being a Momma... a Wife... my church responsibilities... just life. These events save me and I return ready to face the daily demands of life all over again.
I am looking forward to many more amazing RETREATS! We will continue to hold this event in Saratoga Springs but am also expanding to a Fall Retreat here in Idaho Falls. These Retreats are in addition to regular Scrapbook Crops my company offers twice a year. Some might say I am crazy but I love every minute of it!
