Last weekend Lori and I finally met up for our belated birthday weekend getaway. We usually meet in November, the actual month of our birthdays, but life happened, so we decided to meet up in February in Carmel. Let me tell you, it really was worth the wait. We stayed at Carmel Valley Ranch, a beautifully serene resort that was absolute perfection, and just what the Doctor ordered. When Lori and I get together, we cant help but talk shop, all the while encouraging and brainstorming ideas for each other’s businesses. It comes naturally, and it’s always fun. I left there with a healthy To Do List, and a recharged mind and priorities. I look forward to implementing some of my goals immediately. I will share here with you that God has been putting it on my heart to become more visible in my brand. It’s definitely something I struggle with, being the hardcore-introvert-behind-the-scenes-gal that I am. I’ve been working on ways to do it in a way that feels authentic to me. So be on the look out for more glimpses of me *cringe.* And if you see me around social media, coming out of my shell, be sure to say hi! The part that makes it worth it is getting to know you guys!
