3 More Weeks!!

hard to believe after all this time planning and anticipating that it is just 3 more weeks till the fall retreat!!  just like with the spring retreat, there was a time when i had a lot of doubts, when i thought it was not going to come together - when there were not enough participants to make it happen.  i had put so much time and effort into it and i felt that it was crashing down around me.

i'm learning to trust.... (slowly it seems...)  i'm now completely convinced that the group of 7 brave and beautiful souls signed up for the retreat is the perfect mix.  women of different ages and backgrounds, different talents and life journeys.  i just know that it's going to be amazing!

after the heat we have been having here in southern ca, i'm loving posting these very fall-like pics taken last year up on mt. palomar.  there is certainly a good chance for lovely fall weather, but i have to remind myself that there is always a risk when heading up into the mountains.  it could rain or - gulp -snow!  things may not go exactly as planned and that's ok.

at the last retreat, when we drove out to to the site of our morning hike, we discovered that, unbeknownst to us, it was turkey-hunting season. yikes - hunters! with guns! this was not in the plans!

i had to change the hiking destination at the last minute.  here is carolyn making the best of the situation and posing with one of the poor captured turkeys!  (not my thing at all!) so, my point is, it won't be perfect.  nothing ever is.  but it's going to be great.  i can feel it in my bones!!  can't wait!!
