A few weeks ago, I had the amazing opportunity of attending a retreat for creative women entrepreneurs! It is called “Inspired Retreat” and it is located in the beautiful countryside outside of Nashville, Tennessee at Evins Mills Retreat Center.
After arriving at the Nashville International Airport, I was ready to meet my car-mates and head out to Evins Mill!
Once we were at Evins Mills, we were greeted with such warmth and friendliness! Seriously….check out these flowers and sign below! Everything was that pretty at this retreat. Everything!!!
The Lodging was simply incredible. Two or three girls shared a cabin! Y’all check out their website at: http://www.evinsmill.com This would be a wonderful place for a family reunion, work conference, or for a girls get-away!
The walkways through the trees to get to the different sessions were really beautiful as well!
We were at the Retreat from Sunday afternoon until Wednesday morning. During the day we attended sessions about our creative businesses: Living a Brave Life, Scrapbook and Storytelling, Next Level Graphic Design, Product Development, Money + Time, and Styling Your Creative Products. We also had the honor of attending two creative workshops by the talented Hilary Butler and Kori Clark!
The Swag (gifts) every time we turned around was sooo much fun! My love language is “gifts and cards” so this girl was in hog heaven! 😉 Thank you to all of the vendors and businesses that shared with us!
Every morning, noon, and night they served us the most yummy farm-to-table meals! You can check out the website I listed above for some of their tasty recipes!
Amber and her team did such a beautiful job each day/night decorating the tables for our meals! Peonies, pink, and bubbly!! Such a great combo! 😉
So thankful to have met this Southern Belle, Maghon Taylor! She has the most adorable business called All She Wrote Notes! Definitely check out her website at: http://www.allshewrotenotes.com
On the last afternoon, a group of us took a scenic hike towards this waterfall!! I couldn’t even believe it was right here on the same property!
Truly, truly it was such a JOY meeting so many awesome creative ladies! I absolutely loved hearing their stories about their businesses, ideas, hopes, dreams and balancing biz and family life.
Thank you, Amber Housley for putting so much heart, time and love into this amazing experience!! It is one I will remember forever. Excited to take all that I learned, step out of my comfort zone and reach for new heights! Thank you to the talented Gina Zeidler for these amazing photos you shared with us as well! (and I added in a few of my own….the not so professional ones!) Lol!
