Dear Readers and Friends and Fellow Life Enthusiasts,
Today, I bring to you a very special project I’ve been working on for quite some time. It started as a little dream that buzzed in my heart–first a quiet buzz that made me acknowledge, “Oh hey there, dream, I see you. I’m going to make you happen someday.” But dreams are feisty little buggers, and this one wanted action–not just talk. So the buzz turned into more of a sting–a sting that couldn’t be ignored–and the sting put the dream into action.
Here’s what the dream looked like:
A 30-day online experience with a community of women–kind of like a retreat but without the huge expense and childcare and traveling. Writing prompts, thinking prompts, life prompts, podcasts, connection, support. I wanted to take what I love about connecting with women, what I’ve learned from writing and sharing online, what I’ve collected from the stories of women I’ve worked with, and exercises that bring me joy in life everyday and weave them into a month-long course to create community and support for women who want to explore MORE in life, women who might be feeling stuck or uninspired or who are just looking for some space to focus on themselves. And because I’m a busy mom who has a lot going on, I wanted to make something that was doable for other women like me. Something a mom could commit to even if her summer looks like driving kids around, sitting in the passenger seat of an RV on a road trip or working in a cubicle to pay for her kids’ summer camps.
So I created Ordinary Magic, a month-long digital experience that will begin in June. And today, I’m inviting you to be a part of it.
So much love went into this new baby, and I’m so excited to share it with you–to share the entire month of June exploring and connecting with you if you’d like to be a part of it.
To make sure all the kinks were worked out, I shared the program with 30 women in a beta test group this April, and I already miss them. It was magic.
You can read all about the program, what it explores and see what the women who were a part of it said about their experience here.
As Jen said, “It sounds corny, but these four weeks were truly life-changing. I have come to have an improved awareness of myself…my strengths, my stumbling blocks, my dreams and goals and my self-worth. I know how to kick my critic to the curb. I am a better mommy, a better wife, a better co-worker and a better me.”
Is this just for moms? No! We had a great age range in our Beta group, and it’s not at all kid-focused. It’s a little defibrillation for your own soul and some online connection and support to help you stir the pot of all the good stuff that lies within you–your creativity, your confidence, your gratitude and joy.

To keep this experience as meaningful as possible for the participants, the cart has been closed for the June session. If you’d like to be added to the “first to know” list for future programs, you can sign up for notifications in the newsletter list here).
It’s like summer camp, but you can stay in your pajamas. And sorry, there’s no hot sailing instructor. Just me. See you on the high ropes course. xo
