Girls Creative Getaway

If you have been a reader of my blog and know anything about me, then you know how important my family and friends are to me.

Every year my girlfriend (of over 30+years) and I go on a little trip.
For the last (many years) we have been going to Mink Mountain.
We rent a cabin for 4 days, we create, hike, relax in the hot tub and just enjoy each other's friendship.

Hard to tell, but we just walked up a huge hill, and complained the whole time....but we did it again the next day, lol.

Debbie taking a photo of the solar eclipse...I kept telling her she needed to get back inside.
Silly lady, but I think she may have got a photo of it.

This little cutie came right up to our patio door.
He even brought us a dead bird, lol.
I think he wanted to exchange it for what we were having for dinner, lol.

We enjoyed a nice hot tub every night.
Scrapbooking all day and night as well as our hikes, this sure eased our muscles.
And besides the spiders that I had to clear away for Debbie, we had a couple of these beauties come and visit us during our soak.

Such a beautiful view of the lake from the cabins deck!
Love Lake Superior.

First place I stopped before heading home, was to visit this little guy.
I think he even missed me.
After I fed him lunch, he fell asleep in my arms...I didn't want to put him down.

As much as I missed him, I did get to see him a lot in photos this week, as all my scrapbook pages were of him.
He will have his album completed before my own daughters are, lol.

I hope you all have a very creative day and I plan on sharing my layouts soon :)

  5. Sounds like a wonderful little vacation with your GF! Wish I could do that with mine - She & I have been friends for over 30 years as well... She lives in Chicago & I live in Utah... so it's hard to connect sometimes except by phone! She doesn't craft either... but I think us just hanging out for a couple of days would be fun! :) Have a great weekend!
