@Home|Away Retreat

Wow, WHAT a weekend! I'm still in awe of what Kim accomplished on the weekend. She has it all - the creativity, the brilliant ideas and the business sense. And she put together the most amazing 5 star retreat *****. In typical Yvette style I didn't take a single photo once the retreat started! But we'll be sharing photos around so I'm confident I'll get plenty! I did take a few photos before the retreat started tho.

Here's the beautiful room that greeted the registrants on Friday night. They got the most fantastic goody bags and kits!

Sorry this one's blurry...

Here's the cute candy bar!

And this is a snippet of the market stall that Kim and the Support Team put together - we had some unique supplies, kits and handmade items.

This is one of Kim's photos taken before the retreat. Kim's doing several blog posts about the retreat and you can read the first one here. It was so awesome that the whole Support Team could be there. I have met Kim several times before but the other girls I hadn't met at all. But we've all been friends online for so long that when we did meet in real life it was so natural and easy! It was just lovely.

I'll be back with some more details and photos of the retreat when I've aquired some more photos!
