winter weekend retreat 2018 | all about joy

winter weekend retreat 2018

Our annual crafting and relaxing retreat took place last weekend and (as usual) was the perfect way to usher in the holiday season. This retreat is a timely pause button, a time to reflect and refuel. We spent the weekend simmering in All Things Christmas as we made beautiful things.

There were egg nog chai lattes, egg nog scones, PRESENTS, holiday decorations, Christmas tunes, and so much more!

We decorated ugly sweater cookies (my recipe is HERE) and spent some time weaving. A few ladies even learned how to stamp words onto metal, making bracelets for themselves and as gifts.

Joy was the theme of this year’s retreat & I swear it infused every part… except perhaps during the circular weaving breakout or when my camera lens broke.:x

Virtual visits to France, the mini stapler I had to have, THAT song, Friday Night Pizza, sharing holiday traditions, Mary’s INCREDIBLE gift/talent & the Etsy shop that MUST happen, One Little Word experiences, endless laughter, Happy Hour, watching Heather at work, Toni’s mini freezer pies, Allison’s little girl asking about the swimming pool, Crystal’s yummy wine, SNOW, Mary’s bars, Renee’s sweet offers of help, and April nudging Teresa along with those darn coasters. It was a very special weekend with a group of very special women. I can’t wait until next year!

winter wonderland extended family session | minneapolis family photographer

© Tina Vega Photography

This winter wonderland, Narnia-like session took place a few weeks ago. I met Sarah and several of her family members (22 to be exact) at Minnehaha Falls.

Because of the group’s size and temperature, we situated ourselves pretty close to the parking lot and worked in shifts.

They all did a fantastic job and I love what we were able to capture between shivers.
