Big arching antique windows overlooking River North set the mood for the location of Creative Women's Co. Chicago Retreat at the Freehand Hotel. A handful of laughing women were putting together swag bags full of goodies from local creatives to give the women coming in from out of town for the retreat.
I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with those incredible women - seminars filled with talks about setting boundaries in your life and business by Heather Vickery of Vickery & Co., calligraphy sessions to learn how to express emotion through words led by Justine Hwang of It Just Flows, and group dancing to feel connected to your body taught by Christine Reed of Design Dance. Yeah, it was amazing.
Thanks again to Ari of Chykalophia for inviting me to be the photography partner for the retreat and to all the amazing women who I met and connected with. Can't wait to see what y'all do. :)
