Renew: (v.) to make new, fresh, or strong again.
This weekend was just that. Time for me to refresh and get a little bit of a recharge. Time to make "new" friendships with people I've been friends with online for some time. All leaving strong myself, and with stronger relationships with great people!.
Thanks to Madison and Rachel and their awesome planning for Renew Retreat, I'm pretty sure we all had a great weekend!
To me, the best times spent are slow mornings with coffee and people I love. And that's just what this was. Great food, great friends, and open hearts.
Saturday we all went out exploring, and Meg, Amy, and I decided to practice some shots on each other.
While I don't necessarily think of myself as a portrait photographer, I did have some great subjects and had fun capturing their fun and beauty.
It looks awesome and like we're in the middle of a farm or something. Nope. a little to the left was a weird hotel, and to the right was the weird hotel's weirder laundry room.
People may not understand why we blog... and yes, there are lots of reasons, but for me, the community is best.
I'm so thankful for this weekend, where 15 of us got to hang out and get to know each other more, as "real people."
Because that's all we are. Real people, sharing some of our lives on our little spaces on the Internet.
And occasionally some really sweet things come from it.
