Wondering where I was all weekend? Well, now you know!! Exciting business planning in the works…stay tuned.

DeKoven Center, in Racine -- a magical (and haunted!) place to go on retreat

The chapel at night (it wasn’t as dark out as it looks here when I took this photo).

Each of us picked a stone out of a bag when we arrived. Mine read “laugh,” which was interesting given my secret passion for stand-up comedy! I also found that at an all women’s retreat, where sisterhood is the watchword, yes, there will be plenty of laughter!

I wanted to take a photo of every inch of this beautiful building (but I restrained myself). This is the hallway outside our bedroom on the fourth floor.

DeKoven is right next to Lake Michigan.

The beautiful tunnel leading from the inner quadrangle area to the outer area where the lakefront is.

My tree friends. I love how this photo seems to have captured a direct line of sunlight from them to me!

So many stairs! This was just one section of the stairs leading to the fourth floor. Those ceilings are tall!!!

DeKoven's new labyrinth maze (good thing I found time to walk this on my own, since I slept through the Sunday morning labyrinth meditation...)
