This weekend was such a blast! I wasn’t sure what to expect meeting so many faces I only knew about through the internet. It’s kind of a weird thing to “know” someone online and then really get to “know” that person in real life. But most everyone was just as I imagined! It was so encouraging and inspiring to hear each others stories and learn from one another’s experiences. Get 20 + female designers together and there is A LOT to talk about! haha. Everyone was so open and willing to share! It really did feel like such a friendly collaborative community. I even managed to make it through four whole days without blubbering on about missing my baby…..the girls made it pretty easy for me! I love how the internet can bring us all together in this way! Thanks to Promise and Alyssa for coordinating this retreat! I am looking forward to doing it again next year, and seeing how this thing might grow!
