Is that big holiday to-do list already running like fire ants through your brain? 

Summer was fun, but it flew by in a flash and was quickly replaced with “back-to-school”, new work projects, and a nonstop schedule that makes your head spin.  It’s suddenly fall!  Time for apple cider, pumpkin pie, and warm sweaters, right?! 

As much as you love the idea of getting cozy, you can feel your stress already rising, knowing that you barely have time to settle your tush before impending family photoshoots, holiday cards, gift shopping, party planning, in-laws, and travel are taunting you on the horizon.

We see you girl and we’ve been there too. 

That’s why this girls night out is all about giving YOU the space to Simmer Down.

This GNO is an opportunity to put that holiday frenzy (that’s already threatening your sanity) on the back burner and let it simmer for the night. Not only will you learn the calming art of hand lettering with the “Queen of Calm” herself, Molly Stephenson, you’ll also learn simple strategies to tell those anxious thoughts swirling in your head to: Simmer Down.

This year, you won’t allow them to fester until they end up boiling over, at precisely the wrong time.  Nope. This year you’ll decide to turn down the heat and move that stress over to the back burner to simmer, while you take a minute to get your head in order.   

This is your year to get ahead by taking a proactive approach, surrounded by a fierce circle of women who love you, all pulling in the same direction.  

And it all starts the minute you decide to Simmer Down.

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.

more joy.

more connection.

more purpose.

more fun.

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 just a season” until you look back and realize. . .

It was your life.

Simmer Down GNO 

November 7th, HeartStories GNO

 

Hi ladies, my name is Molly Stephenson! I am a corporate designer by day and small business owner by night! I run a small modern calligraphy business called Love Letters Handmade. This passion project grew from a love of letters and simple projects for friends to a healthy side hustle where I do weddings, events, and custom orders for clients all over DFW.

My favorite part of Love Letters Handmade is the ability to teach modern calligraphy in my workshops! I love being able to share my joy of letters and inspire others to enjoy being a beginner, embrace progress through practice, and create something beautiful with their own two hands.

I can’t wait to share my love of lettering with all of you!

 


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 yourselves from very the relationships that have the power to give you the most strength.

That’s why this GNO was born!

I (aim to) blog 5 days a week to encourage your heart. And 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. . .

get your ticket to Girls Night Out now sister!

Come join us at GNO.

You’ll be glad you did.
