Travel Diary: GBSxCHI 2015

November 2, 2015

Happy Monday!

Over the weekend, we traveled to Chicago to attend Go Blog Social’s Chicago Pop-Up! Last year, Andra and I had attended just a couple of weeks after we had launched our business! It was a really cool experience — especially because we were able to reflect upon the past year: how much has changed and how much we’ve grown.


Hallie of Corals and Cognacs spoke about finding your passion — no matter how young or how old you are.  She was not only really inspiring, but her positive attitude — especially when faced with big challenges — was a reminder that life isn’t about what happens to you, but about how you react to it.


My dear friend Lauren Kelp also presented! Her Website is all about ‘thoughtful living without the pressure of being perfect.’ On her Website, you’ll find beautiful recipes, DIYs, and so much more. Lauren’s presentation was all about being true to yourself and having a business with longevity by cultivating community. Lauren is such a big inspiration to me!


Overall, it was a really fun — short but sweet — day in Chicago! It’s going to be a great week at With Grace and Gold, and I’ve got some extra special goodness happening here on this week, too! Stay tuned!

P.S. My friend Katelyn’s shop, Woodbury Lane, held a pop-up shop at Go Blog Social. I hope you’ll take a peek at her beautiful selection at Woodbury Lane!
