The Fall of 2020

Whew…what a year! I am so thankful to be anticipating the leaves changing, the weather cooling and all the pumpkin spice that goes along with it. My heart is sad that we cannot have our Rescued Women’s Conference BUT do not fear…I’m still planning a mini-rescue for you.  Be sure and check out the Outside of Ordinary Gather Table event on October 6th – I promise a brand new experience for you.

It will be a family-style dinner for 12 of us, and besides enjoying some incredible food, we will be having a conversation surrounding the topic of “Uncertainty”. That’s certainly a 2020 buzz word but I think we all have stories to share of how our lives have been affected by this crazy year. I believe our souls have been affected as well so I’m looking forward to an evening of encouragement, inspiration and hopefully LOTS of laughs. You’ll need to register as soon as possible since there are only 10 tickets available.


Despite the craziness, 2020 is bringing some gigantic joy to my life as well. Grandbaby Brexton is due in less than a month and well, I suspect he will change everything for our family. I’ll also be retiring from my position with State Farm after 23 years which will allow me to focus more attention on Outside of Ordinary – so hang on, we’re about to pick up speed in 2021.

I would love to hear about your Outside of Ordinary Adventures – send a picture and a short description to outsideofordinary.lori@gmail.com and you may be featured on my weekly blog!!!

I wrote a book!

Be sure to pick up a copy of Dumpster Diving... Short chapters make for easy reading! One reader proclaimed “You made me cry, then laugh, and well now, I’m just thinking!”.
