Last week after WPPI, I had the huge honor of being invited up to Oregon by my amazing friend Karen Stott (founder of the Pursuit Community & Intentional Home) to be a guest at their annual Pursuit Staff Getaway. And not only did I get to join them for these incredible few days away, I was also given perhaps the coolest title in the world when I was asked to be their “Visionary Advisor.” Basically, these ladies have some crazy BIG amazing dreams in the works (things that they have already put in motion & are making happen) and they wanted me there to push them to dream even bigger than that. Whoa, talk about a DREAM job for me!!
These few days away were the perfect follow up to WPPI. A chance to rest, to get grounded again in what matters, to laugh, and to have deep conversations that go into the late hours of the night. I don’t know about anybody else out there, but deep conversations are my love language! I just can’t do surface. That’s why I’m always the worst at “mix & mingle” types of situations at these conferences…people want to talk about the weather, and I want to ask them what their biggest fears, hopes & dreams are! :) Lol, it’s a problem, but I’m trying to get better!
But that definitely wasn’t a problem with these ladies! Karen, Kathleen, Kristin & Liz are four of the smartest, funniest, savviest, faith-filled, big-hearted people I’ve ever met. And spending time with them was just…easy. From our drives down the coast listening to T.Swift with our hands out the windows, to our big brainstorming sessions, to our 80s dance party on the last night…I just felt like we had all been friends for years. And that’s an incredible thing when you find it. And I’m already looking forward to years of friendship with them ahead! Here are a few of my favorite photos of our time together!
