Hello friends! I am fresh back from the {in}courage retreat. I got home last night and I haven’t even unpacked yet! It was a sweet time to connect with old friends and get to know some of the ladies better. I had time to rest, have some great conversations, eat yummy food and even get a massage. Heaven! If you’re not familiar with {in}courage, it’s an online community with daily blog posts to encourage your soul. I’m part of the group of writers–and I’m honored to be in this group! It’s Monday, how about some hellos?

***Hello Monday is where I greet the new week with an open heart and a fresh perspective. It’s a new beginning–and there’s so much to be thankful for! Join me by leaving your own hellos in the comments section or linking up a hello monday post there!***
