Days one, two, and three of the Trouvaille Workshop are incredible and full. As a photographer, I was especially captured by the floral arranging classes, because it is such a beautiful skill to have! I was fascinated, and I felt like I could soak everything up like a sponge. I don’t care how long you are in business, you can always learn more, and that’s exactly what I did. Being at Trouvaille was so inspiring.
While those first three days were full of learning and magic and laughter and really good food and florals and business and fun, I really wish I could convey the last day of Trouvaille. The tears, the meaningful hugs, the goodbyes, the hand written notes, the community… it was like we were leaving a family. We all sat around in a big circle, just talking about business and answering questions and brainstorming together. We ate from a biscuit bar and had our coffee, and everyone lingered because we didn’t want to leave.
Truly, Trouvaille isn’t just a workshop. It is an experience. I’m so grateful that my team and I had the privilege of capturing this event and the beautiful work the attendees created, connecting with beautiful hearts and talented people. Trouvaille 2017 will be launching soon, and you won’t want to miss it!
