At the end of October, I had the opportunity to go to North Carolina for a Guided Writing Retreat hosted by Hope*Writers. It was amazing! The whole trip far exceeded my expectations! Honestly, I think it's taken me a couple weeks to write about it because I kinda want to pretend it isn't over yet. =) I'd been looking forward to it so much, and then it was great! Phew! Such a gift from the Lord.
