In less than 3 weeks...

I'll be in Carmel, California! And what's even more exciting is that I'm going to meet a terrific group of ladies there!

I've been participating in circle journal groups for several years, and some of these ladies and I have known each other since our very first circle (and very first encounters with flakers who held on to albums, lost them, etc., etc.). As the years have passed, we have had more awesome ladies join our group, and we now appropriately call ourselves "The Seasoned CJ Survivors". We have supported each other through good times and bad, and I am proud to call each and every one of these ladies my friend :) Some of them do have blogs: Patti, Rocio, Sue, Lisa and Debbie.

We have been saying for a while now that we need to all get together and finally meet in person - and this month it's happening! Lisa's friend has very graciously offered us the use of her house (on the beach!) for the week, and we're all getting together for a fun-filled time! There will be 10 of us! In addition to some day trips we have planned, we're going to spend one of the days teaching classes at the house...each of us will teach something to the other ladies - how fun is that?! So I have my lists started - what I need for the classes, what I need to pack....

I have a feeling I'll need a vacation after this vacation - and I can't wait!! :)
