where in the world has linda been

in San Diego!

To surf? Umm, no. Remember, I can't swim.
But last Wed. Randy and I drove over to San Diego for a Marriage Get Away Conference that Leadership Catalyst puts on and we were a part of the music for the conference (check them out here) and the first night we stayed mere steps from the Pacific Ocean in Del Mar!
What a beautiful beach house! Thanks to Lee & Sandy!
I took this pic early Thursday morning watching the surfers catch the big waves. How do they do it!

Then we stayed at the Four Seasons Aviara Resort in Carlsbad, CA the rest of the week. Oh my gosh! What can I say... waaay out of my league... fresh orchids every day, unbelievable food, our bedding turned down each evening, huge plasma TV, down pillows and duvet. What a treat! But truly another world. (this pic was taken off their web site here)

Check out the views from our balcony! Gorgeous. Breathtaking.

Met so many wonderful couples from all over the country. Once again I was so moved by the power of these truths that are communicated to these couples. Randy and I always come away renewed and more intentional in our love and commitment to one another. I am so thankful to be reminded that our marriage needs to be a priority.

Like I said, delicious food! But look how pretty these desserts are!

Here the guys are rehearsing at the beach house. Ok, I know one of them is my husband, but I gotta say it... these guys are good... I mean really good! On Saturday night they played a concert of fun, oldie songs... "brown eyed girl", "dream baby", "love me do", "love potion no. 9".

Man oh man, I am such a groupie!
More pics to come.

Missed your posting Linda. Sounds like you and your husband had a most wonderful time. You both deserved it.

Couples need these times to keep "falling in love. . . all over again!"

Hey Linda, I'm sitting at work uploading my Getaway pics and thought I'd stop by your blog. I haven't looked at a computer since Weds a.m. before we left for So Cal, so I have lots of catching up to do. Love your post about the Getaway. My favorite time was hanging out with all of you at the beach house. Of course, the rest was the "work" part for me, so not quite as much fun as the relaxing part. It was a great time though and I'm so thankful to be a part of this ministry. See you soon!
