And Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce Wednesday, Day 3 of the Haven Retreat, was truly the BEST DAY! Seriously! I loved Wednesday. If I could relive the day over and over and over again, I would be ecstatic. It started bright and early with a quick class to go over a section… Continue reading The Haven Retreat – Day 3
Good Morning Sunshine I have to admit to you, Tuesday was probably my hardest day at the retreat. As is common when trying to sleep somewhere new, I didn’t get a lot of shut-eye the night before and I was exhausted.
