My last retreat of the year is quickly approaching! Crazy to think that I managed 4 retreats this year (assuming the October weekend is another hit!). Let me be completely honest with you: I think I chose 4 weekends because some part of me assumed I would not return to my day job. That my one-year-leave would turn into a forever-leave.
The decision to go back to work wasn’t an easy one. As I write this post, my daughter is having a meltdown because she can’t connect her ‘o’ and her ‘r’ while practicing cursive. FULL BLOWN MELTDOWN. (She doesn’t realize that even as adults, we need to pay for fancy workbooks to connect our letters properly.)
The full story is much longer (feel free to ask me at a retreat!), but I returned to the workforce and found myself a job that has better work/life balance. It’s the best thing for my kids, and ultimately, the best thing for me. But yeesh — it sure is busy to pull off all these retreats!
For 2020, I’m offering 3 retreats instead of 4. As much as I absolutely LOVED my summer retreat (beautiful weather, peak corn season, and so many summer berries!) I’m going back to the February, June, September model. Winter for a weekend of comfort food (ramen anyone??!!!), late Spring when the strawberries are out, and early Autumn for chilly mornings, warm afternoon sun, all the colourful leaves.
Registration opens November 1st. Cost includes 5 meals made by moi, 2 nights accommodation, all the snacks and drinks, and a weekend of dedicated crafting time! Early bird registration (before December 31st) saves $50! Check your calendars, and pencil in your weekend!
