30 Women, 30 Days

I hope your Thanksgiving was full of good food + good fun, no matter where the day took you.

I spent the day with friends piled on my couch watching the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Day Parade, and then we walked across the street for a special Friendsgiving hosted by my friend Taylor.

You know it’s a good Thanksgiving when you can roll up in house slippers, leggings, and a trucker hat that says ‘Fetch.’

We had been promising you for weeks that on Thanksgiving night at 9pm, we would have a beautiful video go live that would inspire you + announce something big.

After all, we opened the stores to our brick + mortar store 2 years ago TODAY!  (Crazy!)

At 7:30pm last night, when I sat down in my office chair, my desktop did the spinning wheel of death and I lost that whole beautiful video.  My hard drive had completely failed.

I cried.  A lot.  And banged my head on my desk a few times (a lot of times).

At 8:30pm, I dried up my tears and said NO. No, we will not be shaken. ⠀

I whipped out my laptop, sat it on top of a serving bowl for height, and filmed the most unprofessional video for you from the corner of my kitchen, sharing my heart with you + making our big announcement in the most unpolished way.⠀

The message didn’t change, and I shared for the first time publicly what was *actually* going on behind the scenes in the weeks leading up to our brick + mortar store launch, 2 years ago on this very day! ⠀

If you haven’t yet checked out our video, you won’t see the cool visuals and the footage from Ethiopia while I talk, but I hope you still walk away with a fire in your soul and encouragement in your heart.⠀

And…we hope you’re excited about our big announcement! There are some REALLY cool things up for grabs!⠀

Check out our video below for a Thanksgiving weekend love offering from a slightly weary yet determined as hell fellow traveler on this journey of life.

I’m scared, but I know that together, we can do this Flourish Fam!⠀

Thankful, Thankful, Thankful,
