I kept this one quiet, but part of my February health plan was a little mini-retreat with my closest friend. (I’ve decided oldest isn’t quite right, as she’s not the oldest person I know. But she has been my friend since we were 15, and aside from family is the only person still in my life who knew me before I started dating my husband at 16. The three of us have been friends for that long, and her husband was a wonderful addition to the friendship.) I zipped down to her place Friday night to play with the baby and visit with her husband, and then on Saturday we headed to Shawnigan Lake School for a charity scrapbooking event. This was the third time we have attended this event, and as per usual it was fabulous. Lots of scrapping, good food, nice people, beautiful surroundings. A wonderful day.
Then we took ourselves five minutes down the road to a B&B! We could have driven the 45 minutes back to her place, but we are always tired after a long day scrapping (9am – 9pm) so we decided to find accommodations closer. What a treat that was. A lovely private entrance room, good talk, and a breakfast delivered to outside our door the next morning.
File this one under mental health, and social health, and creative health. The perfect antidote for the middle of winter – looking forward to next year!
