I still can’t quite believe that less than a week ago Jen and I put down a deposit on the gorgeous piece of Austin property pictured above. We both experienced a powerful call to host a gathering that would revive, encourage, and bring joy to the lives of moms in the trenches, it’s true, but I’ve always been a little impulsive and quickly started wondering whether we had just purchased for ourselves a very expensive private getaway. I mean, Jen and I could totally get into that, but Joe and Dan might have some reservations.
But then Jen shared our big news on her blog and my jaw dropped as we were showered us with enthusiasm, love, and support! You said that you kind of liked our idea! And wanted to come to our party! You filled our inboxes with virtual hugs and you breathed life into this vision of ours. Woman after woman told me that she needs a day like this just as much as I do. And before we’d even begun I began to feel a little less alone.
I just hope you know how grateful we are.
So now Jen and I are going to go forth and attempt to create an event worthy of you — because you sweet, selfless women deserve no less. We hope to offer you an experience that will energize you and leave you feeling valued; a gathering that will allow you to connect with other women, extend them support, and allow yourself to be supported; and a day that will be free of responsibility and full of relaxation, laughter, good food, cocktails, sweet treats, inspiring speakers, and more.
Please pray for us over the next few months! We both have experience with event planning, but the level of interest is far beyond anything we ever could have imagined so bear with us, and if you could give the Holy Spirit a little tap on the shoulder and point him in our direction that, too, would be the cat’s pajamas and the bee’s knees!
We’ll be back soon to reveal the name, location, and more details about the day!
So! Much! Love!
