Every year I try to take a roadtrip without a plan. This year Mark and I opted for Colorado after I decided to purchase tickets to see Bon Iver at Red Rocks for my birthday. Nothing sounded better than getting into the mountains for some hiking and camping for my 32nd which also happened to be the same week I resigned from my previous position with lululemon to relaunch Artefact. BIG WEEK. I said goodbye to my team and my store, hopped in the car, and we hit the road with the western horizon in sight. Fun fact: I took a similar road trip twice last summer; the first was during the process of interviewing for the Store Manager position and the second was to help my previous Store Manager move to Aspen. This trip felt like the celebration and closing of a big circle. This trip will forever be remembered as the week I found my sparkle.
