Living Locurto Retreat Recap
I’m excited to share this recap of the Living Locurto Team Retreat. I hope you will enjoy seeing some behind the scenes of Living Locurto!
For 10 years, I have done most of the content here at Living Locurto all on my own with some contributors adding content occasionally. I’m happy to make a change and now have a small team of fabulous women. We had a great time away at a lake near Dallas, Texas connecting, learning, fostering our creativity and planning.
Meet Pam, Naomi, Natalie and Annaliese. I’m so thrilled to have them on the Living Locurto team!!! You can learn more about each of them here. I’ll be sharing a lot of what we created for you over the next few months. You’re going to love it!
It’s been raining so much in Texas, I thought we would get rained out. But we had wonderful weather! I knew it would be fun when we were welcomed by a full rainbow!
I love planning retreats and the best way to start off a girls’ trip is with gifts! The first thing that arrived for me to take on our trip was some beautiful flower arrangements from AboutFlowers.com .
Did you know a new study done by the University of North Florida says that living with flowers significantly reduces daily stress? We filled our vacation retreat home with flowers and definitely let the stress float away!
Thanks to Gracious Bridal Design House, I had these fabulous personalized tote bags to fill with goodies for the team.
Read to the end to enter to win some of these fun goodies!!!
First, we checked out our lake house. Can you believe this HUGE shower?? HA! We had to get in for a photo.
Second, we said cheers to a great weekend with our new Goverre portable wine glasses. These are unique glasses that have a drink-through lid, be sure to check them out here. I plan to stock up for gifts!
Third, we pulled out goodies from our gift bags and got to tasting these fun adult treats from Original Jel Shots! They come in unique flavors such as banana and cinnamon. You can see all the flavors here. We decided the Blu-Razz (raspberry) was our favorite.
Another fun gift were sauces from Red Duck Foods, a small Portland based women-owned, company committed to making superior organic sauces. They’ve recently launched a new taco sauce with three fun flavors! I love supporting women-owned companies and really love these flavorful sauces. Be sure to look for them in your local market or order online here.
We also made this amazing cocktail that I will be sharing soon! It was super fun to photograph and taste test.
Since a few team members had never been to Dallas before, I made sure we took some time off to enjoy the Texas countryside and a fabulous dinner at a local winery. We also hit up a small town Whataburger, which is a MUST do when in Texas.
We had so much fun. I personally feel so energized and can’t wait to share more of the creative ideas we did at the retreat soon. Be on the lookout for a lot of fun content coming soon!!!
This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner, Deeleane!
