Sometime you just need to treat yourself to something special! I treated myself this past March to a 4 day watercolor painting retreat at Menucha, Oregon and came home refreshed and rejuvenated. I signed up not really know what to expect as I had never been there before. Menucha was more than I had ever wished for. The area was beautifully located on the Columbia River Gorge and steeped in history. My roommates and I became great friends. The food was delicious!
