My Dear Seattle, Meet Lola

There are certain places you go to that will always leave an imprint on your heart and your senses. For me, one of those places is Seattle, which is why I’m overjoyed to host the next Lola Retreat there.

I can still close my eyes for a moment and be transported. I remember driving from Portland and coming around the bend on the highway and seeing the Seattle skyline in the distance.

I can close my eyes and remember all of the smells — from fish to flowers in Pike’s Place Market. I remember seeing one of the most glorious sunsets of my life, overlooking the water as it glistened back to me. The calm beauty that reminds you that you are truly alive. The kind of thing that is completely free but makes you feel like a million bucks.

Seattle has always been my favorite city in the Pacific Northwest, despite me living in Portland for nearly five years (#sorrynotsorry). Which is why I’m so excited to have Lola Retreat in Seattle.

It’s going to be hosted at the Seattle Art Museum, which is a sight to behold. An art lover’s dream! Every attendee will get museum admission included in the ticket (a $20 value). It’s also 2 blocks from Pike’s Place Market and 3 blocks from the water, so adventure awaits at every turn.

Interested in joining? You can find session descriptions on the site and read our wonderful speakers’ bios to see just how cool they are. We also have scholarship opportunities available as well. Seattle or bust, August 16–18!
