Southern Belle Retreat. A reflection on the day.

Originally uploaded by sjmcdowell
This gorgeous bow was attached to my exchange gift that I received today at our Southern Belle retreat. My new friend Yvette from put together the most beautiful box of gifts that I feel so blessed to have received, each one was breathtaking, I will have to post some of her creations and when I say LOVE goes into her creations it is there abundantly.
Sharon and Dawn were true angels and I am very blessed to have met them and all the other beautiful ladies there today.
The time spent with my fellow bloggers was too short. We felt so comfortable with each other as if we were always friends. I am still in awe of the day and can only thank God for this gift of friendship and kinship.

Blessed be the Day!!!



  1. That is lovely. Enjoy your gifts.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  3. Hi there! I've been hearing about that event coming up and I knew it would be wonderful!!! I knew with Sharon and Dawn so involved that it would have to be fantastic! They are both some of my very favorite blogger friends - I really admire them so much.

    Do show us lots of pictures of everything - I know there was plenty of Beauty all around. You are probably exhausted too. Get some good rest...

  4. Girlfriend so happy I saw this before I turned in tonight. Been thinking about your retreat all day. Sounds like you had a lovely time and can't wait to talk to you about it and to see other pictures.
    Maybe we can talk tomorrow night since I can sleep in Monday

  5. Susan... That was so sweet and I feel the same way my new, sweet dear friend. I had the best time today! I am so glad you love your gifts and I hope they will always remain as a sweet memory of what today held for all of us.

  6. Wow if the bow is that pretty I can't imagine what great gifts were inside. Lucky you.

  7. Susan, I had such a lovely day with everyone!!! Wasn't it fun to just meet like souls that love blogging. I had such a wonderful day with you and all of the others. We MUST do it again soon,
