Marriage Retreat: A Treasure Hunt
Invitation for couples attending the Marriage retreat.
In 2009, my husband and I hosted a Marriage Retreat at Shaker Village. As we worked together to plan the event, I kept thinking about how as the years had gone by, I had lost sight of the treasure that my husband and our marriage was and is.
I loved my husband, but did I consciously view him as a treasure in my life?
Could I discover some tarnished gold long forgotten under the muck of life? And if I was having these thoughts and feelings, could my husband be feeling the same?
And so came the theme for our Marriage Retreat:
A Treasure Hunt.
We planned a geocaching event to go along with the "treasure hunt" Marriage Retreat theme. Each couple received a basket with a compass, map, candy coins and others items to make the weekend more memorable.
I designed several pieces to go along with the event, and wrote the accompanying marriage retreat booklet/program
