Wonderful experience! Kaitlyn was the sweetest and such a kind host. My sister and I decided to go to her retreat together and we had a blast. We feel very fortunate to have met Kaitlyn and our roomie Gabby!! Not to mention Kaitlyn's food was AMAZING and nourishing. Everything tasted phenomenal. I couldn't believe everything was raw!! The place we stayed at was also wonderful and comfortable. I feel like I left recharged and well taken care of. 100% doing this again when Kaitlyn has another retreat!! :)
