Last week, we gathered with a house absolutely FULL to the brim with around 20 amazing #bossladies for our annual What’s Next One-Day Getaway! And I have to tell you, I never love our house more than when it’s absolutely bursting at the seams with big dreamers, DOERS, and amazing hearts like these! In so many ways, I believe this is why God gave us our little dream house by the sea…to be a place of rest and restoration for women like this who pour out their hearts for others all year long & deserve a chance to be loved on and taken care of for a change!
We were so honored this time around to be joined by not one but TWO incredible guest speakers! First we had the absolute firecracker that is Kat from Dear Sweetheart Events to speak about her #ontheroadtofulltime journey this past year, and what it is to punch FEAR in the face and do something about those dreams anyway! Every time I listen to her, I just get SO fired up! And then for our second speaker, we were able to surprise everyone by flying my OWN creative coach & professional goal setter Kim Butler of The Whiteboard Room up from Atlanta to help everyone set their first quarter goals after we took a look back at this past year of What Worked, What Didn’t & on to What’s Next.
In addition to all of the HOURS of business building & goal setting that we did, we also just wanted to create a place for these ladies to relax! So that was accomplished with cozy blankets, lots of Christmas decorations, swag bags filled with some of our favorite things (with HUGE thanks to Parris Chic Boutique for doing such a beautiful job on the bags, signs & mugs!!) a fire that Justin kept crackling the whole day, s’mores, hot cocoa, yummy meals including the taste of New Haven pizza dinner (from all the top pizza places in New Haven, which is famous for its pizza!), and a nail bar on the breaks where everyone could paint their nails if they wanted to! Because I don’t know about you guys, but I always know my life is getting a little too crazy when I can’t even find ten minutes to do something for myself like paint my nails. So everyone got to pick a color to take home with them too as a simple reminder to take more time just for them! Kinda silly I know, but I LOVED it! Here are just a few of our favorite moments from the day!
Here’s to What’s Next! And if you missed the chance to jumpstart your 2016 with us at the Getaway, there is still time to get in on The Event coming up on Jan 5th! The Earlybird prices END on Wednesday so don’t miss it! You can grab your spot by going HERE!
