Every year, Crossroads Trading Co. holds a retreat, Crossroads Camp, for all its store managers. The Style Council gets to attend part of the camp, so this year I took a trip with a few other blogger babes.

Crossroads Camp was held at Westerbeke Ranch in Sonoma, California. There’s really no way to perfectly describe the ranch. It has gardens and farmers and animals, but it’s also a conference center with meeting rooms, etc. I know it sounds like mixing two completely different genres (which it is), but somehow it works. The ranch even has cabins to stay overnight. It really felt like camp… only better.

I mean who wouldn’t want to stay in a cabin like this??

The evening started off with a panel where we talked about trends, Crossroads Trading and where we thought the fashion industry was headed. Then there was a wine & cheese reception.

We had a huuuge family-style dinner. Since the ranch has its own gardens and farmers, everything the cooks prepared was as farm-to-table as you can get. I was in heaven.
