Why is there a llama in my collage?

I spent this weekend turning 33 at this retreat. Basically, I spent a long weekend with ten new, dear, amazing friends. The retreat was an idea broached by my friend Katie. She basically said, "I'm doing this an you should come too!" I agreed. That was months ago and I hadn't thought about it much more until just a couple of days before we were leaving. I started to wonder what we'd talk about, what kind of people I'd meet there and if it would be worth spending the second birthday I've shared with Michael away from him.

Turns out? It was.

There were heartfelt conversations, art projects, a movie, more conversation and lots of stories.

As Katie and I were talking on drive home yesterday we both decided that it would be difficult at best to talk about the retreat because it was such an intense few days of introspection. I will say this, however--I make a great collage! And all of it makes pretty good sense to me but right in the middle there is this picture of a llama. For the life of me, I can't figure out what that means. Any hints?


  1. Oh! Those retreats look very cool. Jealous!

  2. I can't believe how unbelievably bad I am with birthdays. Happy birthday! sounds like a great retreat!
