This past weekend I attended.
3 full days, 2 nights of sharing my love of documenting life and scrapbooking with an amazing group of ladies.
3 full days, 2 nights away from my little boy. For. The. First. Time.
It was the longest weekend of my life. Bittersweet-I was so happy I was there with everyone, but feeling a bit sad without my little half. I missed him so and was totally distracted at times. The mommy brain was running over time...is he going to miss me? Is he going to be mad at me? Will I miss something? What if something happens and I can't get there? Ay Dios mio!
But you know what the most amazing part of #MFT2016 was? It was the amazing group of ladies that I was with and the incredible women who run the crop-they certainly ran the house! While Mommy brain was running marathons in the background, I was scrapbooking to my hearts content my little guys Year 1 Project Life Album and of course telling everyone about his latest adventures. I was chatting away with my friend that met us in NJ all the way from MD. I was learning more about my friend Suzanne who was kind enough to drive us in and get us home safe and sound. I was reconnecting with friends past and connecting with new ones. It made my heart swell that people knew and understood how I was feeling and was more than happy to share their own stories and were open arms to hear mine.
(me + 118 other scrapbook enthusiasts = an amazing weekend)
After a few hours, I was able to sit down and relax. I was able to tell myself to breath and to trust that he is in good hands for this short amount of time. I was able to tell myself that he is home with the best Daddo and family I could ever ask for. I was able to tell myself Zuka Zama and that I would be home soon.
I have to say it was a beyond wonderful weekend. I am now home feeling fresh and renewed.
I am looking forward to next year.
