Where would YOU like to spend it? ~ Since we already know WHO you want to spend it with!
In 2004, Katie published our very first newsletter. In celebration of her dedication, of being the driving force behind this #1 seller (wait, it’s not for sale), I mean this famously known (well, between the Crosby clan) SOS Newsletter, and our hard work that she sometimes had to threaten out of us, we need to plan a girls trip. (Phew…..I’m sure my grammar teacher would die reading THAT run on sentence!)
We need to start tossing around some ideas, in order to agree on a plan by 2013. J Realistically, we can plan it inexpensively and still keep it fun. Here is a list of some ideas. We can do a 3 or 4 day long weekend, in any season. Stay in Michigan or go outside of the state. Please select or suggest some of your own:
· Rafting, kayaking, or tubing, on one of the rivers or streams of the Great Lakes
· Sagatuck area, Dune Buggy adventure
· Rent a cabin, on a lake, beach it, walk along the water, ride a horse on a beach, campfire
· Fall hay wagon trip
· Wine tasting in the fall……up north
· Hiking a trail
· Bird/animal preserve
· Long weekend or week in NC with Tina OR Meet ½ way ?? where that is I don’t know??
· Mackinaw Island
· Traverse City
· Double JJ Ranch
· Zip line in Canada (you will need a passcard or passport)
Personally, I would like to do something adventurous. It doesn’t have to be scary, adventurous but some challenging activity that gets us moving and laughing. We could chose a place that has both adventure and something low key, for those that do not want to do the same. Bottom line is that we would come together at the end of the day. ~Tina
Here is your assignment: For the July newsletter, submit your ideas (no matter how great or small-just like your bucket list). Let’s get this party started, shall we SOS’s? Come one, come all…….
I’m calling our 10th anniversary the “SOS ZZZ’s Retreat (Zip, Zin, and Zen)” by Katie
Have to tell you I had to talk myself into my run this morning, but I pushed through it and got outside. Once there, the damp smell of dirt and the spring cleaning of rain from the night before made my heart sing. The only companions I had in the early morning sun was the earthworm that had crawled their way from deep within the earth to avoid being lost to the soft soil they call home. I had to dodge them while walking/running on the track. They actually gave me comfort and took my mind off the run because I had to keep an eye on them so I wouldn't squash them. Egads... I felt really good after and at peace. Free! 5w/6r/6w! Done...
BUT the doctor office visit today to their scale was not what I wanted to see! I could have sworn my scale at home was telling me the truth, but seems it had been lying to me this entire time. So I am not going to seek it out until I have a few more weeks of my training in tack. See if I forgive it anytime soon… BUT it gives me a little more motivation to keep getting out there ;-)
