It was amazing weather, an incredible spot to stay, and there were so many memorable, photo-worthy moments. Here are just some of my favorites from the weekend!
We stayed at the Anchor Inn in Lincoln City, which is decked head to toe in vintage collections- it's trippin' the kitsch fantastic in there, such an awesome place to stay!
Hanging out in Jen's room at the inn- that's not quite tea we were sipping out of those cups ;)
Ate dinner (and breakfast the next day, which is included!) in the Tiki Lounge
It's only a few blocks from the beach- we walked down to watch the sunset that night.
We stumbled upon a magical fort that had been built out of driftwood. We claimed it as ours and played there as the sun went down.
I wish I could transplant that fort, and the sound of the wind and ocean along with it, to my backyard to escape to whenever I need to relax- it felt so incredible there.
We stuck around the Anchor Inn that morning to eat, try out Jen's Clarisonic (I want one!) and say bye-bye to the super nice people who run the place.
And we headed back to the wild beach one last time...
And we walked back to that magical fort, a fog started rolling in...
And then it was time to hit the thrift stores, and say bye to Lincoln City!
My only complaint about the whole trip was that it was too darn short!
Jen and I actually went there to scope this spot out as a potential place to have a Maven Circle retreat in the future! And after spending such a relaxing, inspiring and fantastic weekend with supportive friends there, we agreed, it's the perfect place!
We're taking the flood of ideas we came up with over the weekend and starting to plan already for how to create a magical experience here for a group of creative, passionate women (you wanna come with us?) We're planning for early 2014 so you'll hear lots more about it in the coming year. It's going to be SO MUCH FUN!
It felt so good to getaway, so reviving. It really makes me realize how I need to do it more often to feel balanced and whole.
Have you gotten to take a getaway lately, mini or large? Or planning one? A change of scenery can be so inspiring, don't you think?
