Grab your girlfriends
& join us for this done-for-you GNO!
Just like any great girl’s night, you’ll enjoy laughter, wine and hors d’oeuvres, but you’ll wake up the next morning refreshed, with more clarity, feeling more connected, and inspired to be more intentional about becoming the woman you know you’re meant to be, with a tribe of women who have your back, right by your side.
You’re working your tail off to be the most amazing mother, wife, friend and contributor to this world you possibly can. And sometimes you feel discouraged when you can’t keep all those plates spinning as fast as you’d like.
Girl, it can be exhausting.
On top of that, as much as you’d love to get time with your girlfriends and feel like you’re investing something in yourself, who has the time (or energy) to plan & coordinate a night out?
It’s easy for women like us to chalk it up to being a season of life we just have to endure. Like putting your dreams and
desires on the back burner is just part of the deal at this stage in the game.
But you know you’re meant for more.
We don’t believe you’re meant to simply endure any season of your life! And we won’t sit back and watch so many beautiful, smart, talented women continue to isolate themselves from very the relationships that have the power to give them the most strength.
It’s time to bring more fun and meaningful connection back to this season of our lives.
It’s entirely possible to live our crazy-busy lives with purpose and a lot more joy. But it all hinges on connection. We have to get reconnected to ourselves and our closest girlfriends, and have fun doing it! That’s why we created a fresh new spin on a Girl’s Night Out.
It’s like a mini retreat in the middle of your week.
It’s not a typical GNO that will leave you feeling bad the next morning. And it’s not a networking event filled with surface conversations. It’s an experience where you’ll feel surrounded by friends, with huge hearts, who are passionate about figuring out what they’re meant to do in this world, and supporting each other in making it happen!
Today, you can draw a line in the sand to say, It’s time for me.
OR you can keep telling yourself, It’s a season, until you look back and realize. . .
It was your life.
“Let’s Get Together”
April 5th, HeartStories GNO
Hi Ladies! I’m Anna. Well, actually I’m Anojana. But the name “Anna” was born in the 6th grade out of a desire to have a name that could easily be pronounced. Speaking of birth,I was born on the beautiful, tropical island of Sri Lanka (very close to India) and immigrated to the US when I was a toddler. My life has always been a blend and, at times, a dichotomy of my South Asian culture and my American surroundings. Today I probably have more in common with my American friends, then my Sri Lankan cousins. I’m a corporate gal, a former CPA and now MBA, working full-time with 2 darling (devilish) littles at home. I use my lunch breaks to sneak in my “me-time”….and I love to cruise the aisles at Target “just for fun”. My weekends are spent negotiating with my husband on who gets to take a long shower and hide in bed for an extra hour. We just moved out to Frisco from Los Angeles and I cannot wait to share my experiences and connect with all of you! I would love to find my mom-soulmate to laugh, cry or just sit in awkward silence with.
Hey Sister! I’m Leah, a free spirit, believer, fashion addict, marketing nerd, serial entrepreneur, model, and inner beauty catalyst. My overall mission, both in my work and my life, is to build self-esteem and confidence in women. I want to inspire you to look great, feel great, and live beautifully – all while styling your own life. When Crystal approached me about this GNO, I was ALL in. What could be better than laughing over brunch & mimosas while talking beauty, diversity, and community, with women like you?! There’s so much to share and so little time! Like the freedom I found when I decided to stop trying to live up to other people’s standards for me and start rocking my natural hair. There’s so much freedom to be found in your inner beauty too. I’m excited to share the night with you!
Hello! Vanessa here! I’m a portrait photographer, specializing in glamour-style portraits, senior photos, family portraits and personal branding headshots.There is something about a beautiful portrait of a woman that just makes my heart so incredibly happy. Perhaps it stems from my own insecurities and not always liking my own photos, but I’ve learned over the years that beauty comes from being comfortable being yourself. That’s when your light ,and your beauty, truly shine. So it’s my passion to guide women through this process in my work. It’s my joy to help you feel comfortable, make you laugh, stop time for you, and capture the most amazing photos, that you’ve ever seen of yourself. Which is precisely why I cannot wait to chat it up with you at GNO about all the different “routines” we each embrace to help us feel more beautiful. (Like why this caramel mama is embracing her silver highlights at 41!) See you soon, Sister!
Hi Dreamer. I’m Theresa. I’m just a girl from Minnesota whose parents escaped Vietnam so that I could live the American Dream. I see you and I know that you’ve put your dreams aside. I’m on a mission to help women like you break up with their fear so they can rise up and light this world up like a firecracker! As a success coach, nurse, wife, mom, I know that mystical and magical things happen when awesome women (yes, YOU) come together to share your stories, so that you can see each other in your own light and truth. I used to dream of looking like a white person – white skin with big eyes and eyelids 🙂 Today, I just embrace all of my “Asianess”. This GNO is exactly the kind of thing I dream of for women everywhere. I can’t wait to meet you there!
Hey Girl, I’m Crystal. I’m just crazy enough to believe, that in the busy ever-changing seasons of your life, you can be encouraged & connected with other women, in a way that will help you replace the negative stories that sometimes hold you back. So you can show up boldly, to live the story only you can live.
With more joy, more connection, more purpose, and a whole lot more fun!
I’m a wife and mother of two boys. I know what it’s like to rush through life on autopilot, losing touch with close friends and the truth about yourself in little pieces along the way. I can’t sit back & watch beautiful, smart, talented women like you, isolate yourself from very the relationships that have the power to give you the most strength.
That’s why this GNO was born!
I blog 5 days a week to encourage your heart. But I’m determined to create more fun, innovative ways for women to be all we’re meant to be and enjoy the journey together, despite our hectic lives. This HeartStories GNO is just one of those ways. I can’t wait to hug your neck!
If you want a fun break from the everyday hustle that is your life, with wine and your best girlfriends. . .
