And the castle doors open...

One very special friend of ours, Lauren Haugh, has been busily working HARD to open her brand new website (or should I say castle) called www.MomsOnlineRetreat.com. Kara and I have been personally helping her in creating "The newest online hideout for moms who just want to get away for awhile and focus on themselves, their own hobbies and interests." (And we ALL NEED this once in a while, right?)

The grand opening of Lauren's castle is today, March 10th, starting at 9:00 A.M. EST. There will be guided tours of the old castle, an opportunity to chat with the Retreat Coordinator herself, as well as many other moms who may share your interests and/or hobbies. Be sure to stop by and wish Lauren a congratulations on her most unique website, www.MomsOnlineRetreat.com. She'll be in the Public Chatroom - Retreat 1 until 10:30 P.M. EST located at http://www.momchats.com/chat/chat-room.html

From the Retreat Coordinator herself...

We are still in the process of renovating this old castle, to create an escape for Moms to focus on their hobbies, their interests, and themselves. If you have been following our progress, we thank you for your patience. And as you enter for the first time, we ask that you pardon our dust, as parts of this old castle have taken longer to modernize than we anticipated.

We are celebrating all day long, with an online Open House at
www.MomChats.com in Public Room - Retreat 1.
Just create a user name~no need to register. Choose "Retreat 1" from the Public Rooms menu and click "Chat".

We will have guided tours of our Retreat Wings, special appearances by some of our Resident Experts, and of course games, and prizes!
