FESTIVE FIFTEEN

Patricia and I, my regular roomie on this weekend.
Last weekend was our annual "Girls' Getaway Weekend" at the lovely Briars Resort. I have been organizing this annual weekend for 15 years, and it is always a lot of fun. We went up a little later in the year, this year, as I decided being able to partake in one of the Christmas Gala's would be a nice way to celebrate 15 years.

When I first started organizing these weekends it was for a women's social group I use to run. Many of my friends now are because of that club. I am grateful that even though the club is no longer around I am still able to carry on this annual tradition for/with my girlfriends.

Our first time attending a gala here.
The main lodge.
With 7 bedrooms and a large common area, First Tee Lodge is the perfect size for our group.
I put bows on all the bedroom doors in our lodge.
Welcome package for the girls.
Welcome letter.
First time having an Xmas tree in the lodge!
 Since we were going to be there for a festive gathering, I asked everyone to bring a gift for a gift exchange game after dinner on Friday night. It was a lot of fun, and every one went home with something nice.

Lots of decorations around the main lodge. 
Kristen waiting for some spa pampering. We all had treatments over the weekend.
Returning from a walk into the Village where we did a little shopping.

The famous "Sticky Toffee Pudding"......SO GOOD!
Andi and I with the other "frame". All attendees names are on it.
Susan is the only one that has attended all 15 years with me.
Group shot night of the Christmas Gala, we looked smashing!
 We're already booked for next year......
