Refreshed. Renewed. Restored.

Refreshed. Renewed. Restored. I am all that after spending a week of girl time with my girlfriends, the Clematis Club (think of Sweet Potato Queens combined with Steel Magnolias).

We stayed at the Phoenix West in Orange Beach (#1009). It was a gorgeous unit. Take a look....












We ate delicious meals in at this gorgeous dining table with a incredible view....




We played. And we played alot!



















And we made sure to take time to rest too.









My precious daughter, Sister Sledge welcomed me home with a flower she potted herself, and love notes here and there.





How blessed I am to be with such wonderful women of all ages in my life .
They make me a better me.
I hope you have had a wonderful weekend.

It's funny that you should compare yourself to Sweet Potato Queens because every time I read about your Clematis Club adventures, I think of them!! Looks like a fun time was had by all - good for you!!

This really brings on my "Beach Fever"!! We always stay at one of the Phoenix condos and love it! We have tried other places but have been spoiled by the Phoenix standards! What a great way to start the summer!

Oh, lucky you!! The colors in those rooms are fantastic..., that's what I would want! Unlike in my home where everything is neutral.
