Rocky Mountain High

When my friend, Holly, asked me to join her for "girls' week" in Frisco, Colorado, I jumped at the chance. Well, I didn't really jump right away, but my interest was piqued. Once Holly told me what the "girls" do, then I was sold. Here's what she told me. "We don't get dressed until 11:00 a.m. (she could have stopped there - I was ready to pack), we read, shop, eat and watch chick flicks." It sounded like a little slice of heaven.

Fast forward a couple months and here I am - sitting in my p.j.'s at 10:00 a.m., blogging in Frisco. The view out our window is beautiful. The air is crisp and clear, and other than being a little winded from the 9000 ft. altitude, all is good. Hopefully, by the end of the week, I'll have a few books to tell you about.

The thing is, you don't have to travel to distant locations to enjoy a little time off with the girls. I mean, it's nice and all, but not always an option. But, I think spending some fun time with girlfriends is a must. Girlfriends offer a different perspective on life than husbands and kids do. Girlfriends help you laugh at yourself, they encourage you when you're down, they know "girl" stuff, they generally enjoying shopping more than the men in your life, and they can just be a blast to be around. I have learned a lot from the girlfriends that God has allowed into my life. So, even if you can't get away for the week, call a friend and get together for a few hours of fun. You'll be amazed at how much better you feel.

In the meantime, I'll keep you posted on my week and try to post more pictures so you can enjoy the view along with me.

I'm glad you are enjoying yourself. I beg to differ on the shopping thing. My husband likes to do it a whole lot more than me!
