Creative University Journey Story Entry 1

Wowza…I’m still up in the clouds from my 2012 Creative University trip this year.  My Soul Sister and I made it safely back to our comfy homes.  Our journey began February 16th at 9am with a 7 hour drive up to Camp Lutherhaven in Coeur d’Alene Idaho.  Suffice to say we had a bitty of a set back because somehow I left my wallet in the bathroom at a truck stop in Umatella OR. otherwise we would have been there at dinner time as originally planned, poor Amy…I promise you she has the patience of an angel which is rare. 
Here is a pic of us packed up DH Style…(love this Hubby of mine)
