The New Year is a natural time of rejuvenation. The days slowly grow longer following the Winter Solstice, California trees begin to bud (sorry Midwest! You’ll have to wait a few more months), but mostly we feel that incredible buzz in the Universe. All around us, folk are making big plans. Gone are the “Do-or-Die” resolutions of the past (which lets face it, are usually discarded within a fortnight). Instead we see people making real, solid roadmaps to turn their dreams into reality. We’re right there with you!
With a cool drizzle blanketing California in wintry coziness, we thought we’d start the year off with some dreams and plans of our own. Without further ado, here’s our list of how we'll make 2017 SUPER AWESOME!
6) 2017 is the end of a solar cycle and we're entering into a calmer phase of solar activity. That means this is our last good chance to see the Northern Lights for a few years. OK, this has nothing to do with Henna, but we love travel and natural beauty. If you see any good fares to Iceland or Alaska, let us know!
5) Henna conferences are popping up all around the world! We can't make it to all of them, but we can dream and plan. Spring Fling, Windy City Mehndi Meet, Polar Sling, Henna Huddle, East West Henna Meet, and more! If you can't make it to California, we may see you around the globe ;) Talk about a henna journey!
4) 2016 was a constant reminder of how incredible our henna community is. Our friends and loved ones in the Henna World may come from thousands of walks of life, but we all bond over our love of this funny little plant! This year, we'll be working even harder to share knowledge, resources, and fun with our henna family, wherever you may be!
3) We'll be giving HennaCaravan.com a little makeover in the coming months. We can't wait to show you what we've been working on!
2) Our 10th Anniversary HennaCon will blow your socks off! We're working doubly hard this year to make sure every attendee has an incredible growing and sharing experience at the Palm Garden Inn.
1) This summer will be Henna Caravan's 20th season! That's 20 years of offering natural henna to Southern California families, destination weddings, working with fabulous corporate partners like Nissan and New Balance, hosting educational events at schools and libraries, and providing the best natural henna products to enthusiasts around the world. We hope you'll celebrate with us!
We're only a few days into 2017 but already we've helped mark birthdays, shipped HennaGlam to 5 different countries, spent a morning with 25 magical creative women, welcomed customers to our Camarillo henna studio, and this week we'll be attending a wedding. As we move through the year ahead, we're focusing on doing what we do well, sharing our passion.
Here's to you, 2017! You're already awesome.
