The food was not only beautiful, but tasty!
Gifts abound at these retreats from Shepherd's Bush and friends. We were given charms to complete a journey scissor fob, charts for smalls and a beautiful wooden tray!
Other random Retreat Fun:
Wonderful gifts to one another like our friend Nancy who gifted us Turban Towels that proved to be a challenge for me . . . couldn't quite get it to wrap properly . . . good for a tearful belly-laugh!
Catching up with friends:
The Humanitarian Project this year was to send a girl from an impoverished country to school. If you wanted to participate, you could stitch a scissor fob to exchange and donate $5.00. They had over 100 fobs entered into the exchange as well as many, many generous donations from tons of people. Shepherd's Bush matched all money raised, and were able to send 10 girls to school and change the lives of those children and their families. What inspiration and kindness.
And how lucky was I to get one from Margaret at our table?
It was a fabulous Journey once again!
