right where I belong! :)

The sun was setting through the trees and I could see the rainbow lit sky out of the corner of my eye through the giant kitchen windows. All 8 of us girls were sitting around the dinner table lapping up the last of our feast from dinner. I sat there, looked around the room and sighed a deep sigh with a giant smile on my face. I fit in with these ladies more than I had ever felt before. I had that feeling of perfect comrodery and companionship! We continued to share stories about our husband’s wardrobe choices, potty training, horrible puberty experiences, and honeymoon embarrassments and laughed for a solid 2 hours so hard that our bellies hurt the following day.

These 7 girls are not only my friends but they walk with me in life! :) We share our stories, we lift each other up and more importantly we can go away for a nice long weekend and let off all the steam of daily living. This weekend we drank wine, knitted, shed a few tears, hiked, put our feet up and chatted the weekend away growing stronger as a group and learning to love everything about who each other were!

This is our KNITCH. A perfect place were we all fit in and feel like you are right where you belong! Our weekend is much anticipated every year (as a matter of fact next year is already on the calendar) and I wouldn’t change our time together for the world. :)

Happy KNITCH weekend girlies! :)

I realize that the “cheese factor” is through the roof on this images but we just HAD to do it! :) :) :)

I have to give props ONCE AGAIN to the fabulous Gail and Dave Paulsen for their amazing lodge! :) Pond View Lodge in Luck WI if anyone wants to book their girls weekend getaway! :)
