The Squam Art Workshops are held in a beautiful spot on a magical lake in New Hampshire. A fantastic group of women (a few men did brave it, but sparsely) gathers for a long weekend of good times.
I quickly realized that so many people gather for company first, and classes second. I totally had it reversed in my assumptions. The classes were wonderful, of course, but the ladies? Oh my. I laughed harder than I have in awhile and found myself in the company of fast friends. There is no typical squammie. Everyone comes from different places in their life and it seems the one common thread between us was an open heart. It was so amazing.
The cabins, the lake, the fair, the everything. It was just so very good.
the playhouse….. all set up & waiting for Jonatha
sunshine in the cabin…..
the old school ice box…. I so love this..
knitting, wine & beer, treats,
bug spray & anti itch creme for the evil mosquitos for 10 women
yes, in that order!
a (very nervous) picture of me at the fair…
I was so amazed & grateful for the support I received.

Much gratitude to the genius mind of Elizabeth for dreaming this up…
& all the volunteers that make it happen…
to my mama for treating me…
the cabin roomies for their love & laughter…
and all the other amazing people I got to hang with.
I'll be sharing the classes tomorrow!
