Friendship and Community In Real Life {in}RL

The internet has been good to me.  It’s given me some incredible, lovely relationships. Online relationships have come a long way – haven’t they? You can connect, build friendships, support one another, and engage in heartfelt conversations.

But you know what’s golden? Those in real life friendships that have stood the test of time. The ones who love you through the thick and thin. The ones you can share a baked good, a favorite beverage, and a sincere conversation. The ones who love you with no makeup and a messy kitchen floor.

I’ve been blessed to have some of my online relationships grow into real life friendships. {In fact, one of those friends is spending the night as I type this!} Thankfully there is a {un}conference that some of my dear friends online at (in)courage have cooked up that has a heart for cultivating these friendships.

“A God-sized dream to connect women beyond the blog posts.”


The Tiny Twig {Hayley} and I will be hosting our own (in)RL (“in real life”) meet-up {more details to come}. Hundreds of women around the globe in over cities will be coming together, over the weekend of April 27 & 28. {More details to follow!}

Are you looking for in real life friendships? Are you craving community? Would you love some casual girl time? 

If you’re local, please join us.  If you aren’t you can find one near you on this map or get some girlfriends together to host your own!  Don’t miss an opportunity to build community in your own community!
