It’s late and I’m beat...but I can’t get over how fun tonight was. Our first Kids Crop Camp was a huge success—thank you to the parents/aunts that signed their kiddos up and had the work of printing pictures.

Watching these kids put their pictures into albums, embellish the pages and journal the events was fun to watch. Some wrote one sentence, others wrote a paragraph. The excitement of showing their albums to the other kids, me and their parents made my night. ❤️❤️

A couple kids asked if we could have a kids camp every week; that won’t be happening, but we are hoping to offer it once every 2-3 months.

GUYS!!! I can’t hold my excitement any longer...tonight is our first Kids Crop Camp and we have a full house! Can’t wait to welcome these kiddos into our retreat and to teach them the basics of scrapbooking. In a 3 hour period, they will be taking home their own completed book! Stay tuned later for pictures and maybe Facebook Live! 👏🏼

Each bed is ready for our guests with soft sheets, a comforter and a set of towels for your stay. See that special chocolate on top? Those were made and traveled home from the chocolate capital of the world...Switzerland! Yes you read that right. When we went on our family vacation last month, I bought a huge box of chocolates to treat our guests. We hope you’ll join us and try these amazing, fresh chocolates. 😊🍫 www.valhallaretreat.com

A year ago we decided to make a dream a reality and start our own retreat center.

The back story on the beginning of Valhalla Retreat;

A house that I felt would be a great retreat center was up for sale. I pitched to my husband that we should purchase it. He told his parents and joked that otherwise they could move to that said house and we’d buy their house and turn our previous house into the retreat.

They weren’t interested into moving into that house, but six days later made an offer on a different house. To say that week was a rollercoaster ride is in understatement. We had no intention on moving our family at that time, but knew that they’d love the new house just as much and that our “old” house would make even a better retreat.

With a lot of prayers, help from family and friends and the willingness of my in-laws to up and move themselves in order to help us fulfill my dream has been something I’ll always be grateful for. ❤️

I hope that you love Valhalla Retreat as much as I do!

So blessed that Robin chose Valhalla Retreat to spend some R&R time with her family. It’s a great place for crafting retreats, but it’s just as wonderful for family gatherings.

I am in the beginning stages of a year of no. What does that mean? It means taking things off of my plate that do not absolutely have to be there. It means I am taking a step back, entering a sabbatical in some of my commitments and completely letting other tasks, jobs and relationships go. It means I am saying yes to rest. Yes to sleep, yes to soul-care, and restoring the compassion I have lost. It's super scary. I am scared of finding out who I am when I stop. Did I make a difference? Was my effort effective or was it wasted? When the dust clears from going mock two with my hair on fire who will still be in my corner? I’m done ”scuba diving” and coming up for real oxygen. My moments of rest over the last couple of days have been at Valhalla Retreat. I have found myself multiple times saying, ”this is heaven.” It is truly a gem in Albert Lea. You need to book this amazing place for your next retreat or family gathering. It's Valhalla awesome!
