In 3 days we'll be setting up for the first ever Southern Circle Retreat. Wow. A little seed was planted in the fall of 2011 when we attended Art and Soul in Portland together. We discussed what we loved about the big retreat atmosphere but how we longed for a more intimate setting where we could truly discover ourselves and our art in a special weekend.
We started this creative journey in August. Luckily we balance each other perfectly. Her strengths are my weaknesses and visa-verse. This retreat is everything we'd want as an attendee. A special way to socialize, yummy food, amazing projects, amazing setting, and 10 people who don't know each other. Perfect. I'm packed, pretty sure she is too. We're not nervous, rather anxious. Anxious to set up, to meet everyone and to teach! With as much joy and love as we have invested into the weekend.....well honestly sometimes it's pure love for what you do that can help you to reach new heights. Skills are great....but when passion comes into play then.....then you can be simply amazing.
We are looking forward to an amazing weekend. And hope if you are reading this and wished you'd joined us, you'll stick around because we're pretty sure there will be a next time!
