Jackson's Mill Fall 2018

Happy Monday all!

And....even though I DO NOT get to be off work and call it a holiday...Happy Columbus Day!

Well, another Jackson's Mill weekend is in the books!  I met up with my favorite group of women to enjoy a weekend of relaxation at Jackson's Mill in WVa. It it a beautiful and amazing little place in West Virginia! We meet up there for a Conference three times a year and we always come home totally refreshed!

My BFF's!!!!!! These are some of the greatest and most supportive and loving women I have ever known!

We spent the weekend in so many of our favorite little Mom and Pop stores....shopping and goofing off!!!!!

A trip to Walmart is in order when one of you forgets their extra underwear...LOL!!! This awesome Pepsi Zero game was outside...we played and could not figure out why there was no line...it was free!!!! Then we saw what we won realized why there was no line...you could choose from a chip clip or a baby football-LOL!

 Here we all are again...it is so much fun when I get together with these ladies...
 The last night was a campfire and sing a long. It was awesome! It was a huge bonfire and they pass out booklets with the lyrics for everyone to sing along! There are wooden bleachers built around the bonfire pit and everyone sits down on those around the fire...in the dark.  Being a huge spider freak I decided to shine a light under the bleachers. I am so glad I did! I hurriedly moved my friend off the bleacher - she was sitting right on the top side of this horrible guy!!!!!!!!  He was super gross and super huge to a person that is terrified of spiders!
 UGH!!!! But we had fun singing and hanging out and laughing with everyone! Here is a photo of everyone and the fire from a nearby hillside! Soooo pretty!
 This is a photo I took on my Saturday morning walk...so peaceful and such a beautiful place!!!!!! Can't wait to go back in the Winter!
Thank you Jackson's Mill for another amazing weekend!!!! No one has better friends than me!! They are amazing and supportive and my lifeline - truly!

I hope everyone has a great Monday!!!! Hugs

What is your favorite quality in a friend? Do you have any rational or irrational fears? If so, what are you afraid of?

  6. You're not supposed to look for spiders lol. I was helping my mom bring some chairs in for book club a couple weekends ago and a HUGE black widow crawled out. I'm not usually scared of spiders except for those lol.
