Update on the Big Bear Retreat 2013

I love when things unfold so naturally.  I could not have asked for a better, more exciting, diverse group of women than those who signed up for the Big Bear Retreat.  We began on Friday afternoon and closed up Monday around 11:00 am.  I loved writing with these women, sharing and just having a great time.  We all left with a whole new group of friends and a broader understanding of writing memoir.  I am just going to include a few pictures for you to enjoy!


I will have to just do one blog post dedicated to the wonderful vegetarian food that our Chef Lori prepared for us each day!  Writing and food go so well together, and a few bottles of wine!

"Because of Tammy I have found confidence in my writing and feel blessed to be honored in such a way. I have found my voice. I have found freedom! I recommend anyone for whatever reason to expand their life and sign up for her writing workshops or classes. You'll be amazed at how good you are and how everyone has a story worth telling. Sign up and set your voice free!"
