A Weekend Away

This weekend I was in Lake Arrowhead for our Event Society retreat! It was soooo nice and such a beautiful getaway:) We left Friday afternoon, and after sitting in TONS of traffic on the 91 fwy, we arrived at the Betzer Cabin on John Muir Street that sits right on the lake! The house was fairly big and perfect for the 14 of us that were there. There were 10 students, our boss and her husband, and her parents. We had tons of snacks, ate too much food, hung out and talked, and watched movies. We were able to go out and sit on the dock and look at the water..if we were up to sitting in the cold. Last weekend, Lake Arrowhead got 3 feet of snow and this weekend it was in the 60s and 70s the whole time! Perfect, crisp, yet lovely mountain weather! On Friday night we had a mini educational seminar on how to get a job and how to establish yourself in a new position and had a pizza party. On Saturday we went to brunch down in the village and walked around and shopped a bit. 'Twas lovely:) We went back to the cabin and layed around all afternoon doing homework, sleeping, relaxing, and doing whatever we wanted! It was seriously so great! A much needed getaway! Although the ten of us were in the same room, we did manage to get homework done all in the same room, some even when we were watching movies! Victoria (our boss), had her mom come along to lead a seminar on etiquette and hospitality and how to host a dinner party, how to act as a guest in someones home, and how to set a table with lots of fancy dishes! So fun! Victoria and her mom then made us DELICIOUS dinner:) We watched another movie, did more homework, and layed around laughing! It was so much fun. I love the people in the Event Society but the only time we get to see each other is at events when we are busy and have things to do so this was such a great time to hang out with people I love but don't see too often! This morning we got up, packed our stuff, and had a morning devotion before leaving. I had such a great weekend and thoroughly enjoyed my time in the mountains taking in the beauty of God's creation! :)
