After following Designer Vaca from afar for a few years, I've finally taken the plunge and signed up to attend this year in beautiful Palm Springs, California. I wasn't planning to head back to America so soon and it doesn't fit easily into my budget, but I think it will be worth the effort. As a freelance creative I'll be able to meet other women in the same boat as me, discuss the freelance hustle, and feel like an active part of a community. This is particularly hard to foster when you work from home without co-workers or collaborators (unless you count Iggy) - and I am sure once I have a few drinks I'll be confident enough to strike up some conversation. Here's hoping Designer Vaca will hold some great conversations, create some new friendships, and plant some new ideas to help me foster and support the Australian creative women's community. 

I cannot wait to get over to Palm Springs, get a drink in my hand, and meet some amazing creative ladies - October cannot come soon enough!
