Gone wild

Every October, I spend a long weekend in the mountains with a bunch of female friends — a weekend that one of our husbands jokingly dubbed "Wild Woman Weekend." I'm leaving in a few minutes to drive up with Signing Woman to the beautiful camp her extended family owns on a big lake in the eastern part of the mountains. Eleven of us are going, eleven women who like to talk and dance and eat and hike and talk some more. We've known each other for years, and we all live in Snowstorm region so we see each other throughout the year, but there's something wonderful about spending a whole weekend together, where there's time for serious, in-depth conversations and relaxed, silly games.

I wanna go, too. Almost makes me want to be a woman.

^^ What she said.

Seriously, though; every year when you head out for this trip I get SO jealous. And I don't even know you!

Your wild women weekends always inspire jealousy in my heart.

This has been a hard week in our home and I want you to know that once again your photos and writing have been a bright spot in which to land.

Thanks.
