Thank You

Last night we gave the final Spread the Love of the 2011 tour.

In January of 2010 we kicked off the first Spread the Love tour in Boston, so it only seemed fitting that last night we would wind up back where it all started. This winter I’ll be hunkering down for about three months to write the next generation of Spread the Love, so in many ways this was kind of the passing of an era for us. These two years of STL have taken us to 30 stops all across the country and brought us together with some of the most amazing hearts we’ve ever met. People who push us, challenge us, and call us to dream bigger. People that we’re now so honored to call friends.

To all of the Spread the Love alums everywhere, I adore you. Truly, madly and deeply. And thank you for everything you are. My life will never be the same for having met you.

Here’s to what’s next… but also to what’s right now.
So much love,

  1. Alicia Candelora

    …and I’m pretty sure I speak for everyone when I say thank YOU for pouring our your hearts to all of us. :)

  2. Katie Jane

    Thank YOU both so much for everything you give back and everything you’d done for all of us. You guys have inspired me so much this year and really helped change my business in so many ways!

  3. Emilia Jane

    THANK YOU GUYS! Spread the Love changed the way I think about approaching my business. You all are awesome :-D

  4. Gail

    Ahhhh–BIG congrats to you guys! Having been to one of the STL stops, as much as I learned, I was also just AMAZED at how much work you and Justin have put into this endeavor. How you did it all–all 30 stops–on top of running your biz, I’ll never know.

    Please, go take a nap. Both of you! It’s readily deserved!! :)

  25. Alison

    Thank you all for doing STL and being so willing to share yourselves, your BHAGS, your failures and for being willing to push. It was hard to sit there yesterday and say outloud What I want to do with my dream, but I am so glad I did. I had an amazing opportunity fall in my lap before STL and I had come up with a list of reasons I couldn’t do it. Thank you for the push to defeat the fear & take the next step to make this dream happen! Oh, and I can’t wait to show you the rebranding when it is finally put together! Much much love and thanks!
