A gift.

Sometimes gifts come in big packages, sometimes small, sometimes when you least expect it, and sometimes when you need them the most.  The Little Pink Couples retreat started today and for me, it has been all of those things. 

The house that our retreat is in is called Croatan Ridge.  I got a chance to visit the house last spring and meet the owners.  They are the most amazing, down to earth people and the second you walk into their home, you feel like you have known them your whole life and are part of their family.  Their spirit was evident today in that as our couples entered, it was such a comfortable environment where they hopefully felt very embraced and that their new Little Pink family was welcoming them with big open arms.  We have 5 couples- from Kansas City, Ohio, Colorado, North Carolina, and Wisconsin! 

Our first couple to arrive was of course the one that drove the farthest:) 

We got a chance to mingle and meet while dinner was being fixed..

And then enjoy a wonderful meal and get to know each other...

Thanks to Brandon for making a wonderful meal tonight.  He is a great example of how to reach out with your gifts and help others!
