Girls' Weekend!


Hello!  I'm back from a truly amazing girls' weekend!!!  My very good friend Jeanne had a lovely End of Summer Nights Soiree at her home last Thursday evening, so Traci, Jen and I headed out to Denver to spend the weekend at Jeanne's {seriously} beautiful home!  First of all, let me tell you that Jeanne has a gift for styling her home to be not only beautiful but also so very warm and welcoming...the kind of place you want to come back to time and again.  And can I also mention that her family is absolutely delightful?!! 

I did not take a ton of pictures at the party, but here are a few of the ones I did.  The soiree was in Jeanne's backyard...





Not only was the food that Jeanne prepared delicious and decoration in it's own right, but there were so many details that made the whole event so special...

mason jars with lace paper doilies made for such pretty candle holders...



the best sangria ever...




ahhh, and the pastries...






Traci ready with her camera...


Jen too...

oh, and did I mention that there was real furniture for everyone to sit down at outside?!  Pretty darn cool!!


Jeanne striking a pose!  She truly is one of the funniest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing!  I laughed the entire weekend thanks to her!!!

Next to her is the beautiful Mel...


The party ended with an outdoor movie.  There was even a latte cart that Jeanne had hired to supply drinks for everyone.  It was a magical might, unfortunately I had been up since 3:30 in the morning, so I did not make it thru the end of the movie.


The second day we were in Colorado, we went to The Barn to do a little shopping...


{Jen, Jeanne, me, Amy Jo, and Traci}

There is some seriously fabulous vintage shopping to be found at The Barn, here are a few highlights...





















We also saw The Help {which I loved}, got a massage, relaxed, drank margaritas, and laughed nonstop...so all in all it was a wonderful 4 day break from reality! 

I thank God every day that He has blessed me in abundance with such loving friends!!!  I could not have asked for a better group of women to spend the weekend with!!!

Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend yourselves!  Yikes, where did the Summer go??!!
