Hello Weekend!

I'm writing/designing this post from the comfort of my hotel room. I'm kicking this weekend off with an awesome conference. OTA focuses on extraordinary experiences and engagements that educate, empower, and serve as creative catalysts for community-builders and change agents to improve the lives of all people living in South Dakota, North Dakota, and Minnesota. I traveled to the east side of the state to hear all of these wonderful speakers. I'm most excited to hear from the talented Mr. Aaron Draplin and to soak up some creative genius from Peter Buchanan-Smith of Best Made Co. I'm pumped for a full day of inspiration. I cannot wait to share everything I've learned next week.

Instead of heading back home after OTA I decided to stay and turn the weekend into a mini vacation. Saturday I'm running a St. Patty's Day 5 mile race! I'll spend the rest of the day celebrating St. Pats with my 2 of my best friends (who happen to be ridiculously Irish). The best part about being on vacation is all the recreational eating and drinking. I cannot wait to sample all the goodies that Sioux Falls has to offer. I'm coming for you first thing in the morning, Queen City Bakery!

What are your weekend plans? Whatever they may be, I hope you have a wonderful one!
