Pursuit Paducah + Thoughts on Community (not the TV show)

This year, one of my goals is to get more involved with people,  make more connections, and invest in relationships. I have a tendency to get too focused on my own stuff, keeping my head down in my own work, and not really getting connected with those around me.  I joined a couple online groups of fantastic women that I'm totally excited about {#FIREWORKPEOPLE,  the Peony Project}, but I also wanted to get more involved in my local community. 

Last month when I met up with Ellie, something we chatted a bit about was the importance of community.  I admitted my recent realization that I didn't know how much I needed it until I really got a taste of it.  A couple weeks later, I was still thinking about it, but the idea of how to go about it was daunting. 

Enter Pursuit. I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a post about the first meeting of the new local group. Whaaaat? A local group of Christian women entrepreneurs? Sign. me. up.

 I love how the women in this group are so supportive of each other and don't try to compete. Before I found this group, I was hesitant to approach other photographers in my area from the fear of being seen as "competition", but I'm so glad to see that these ladies are so supportive of each other.
