About Soulful Joy
Soulful Joy helps women upgrade their ME time through destination retreats and a seasonal self-care subscription box. We focus on sourcing high-quality gifts, with a focus on small businesses, new products, and items guaranteed to aid in your self-care routine. We believe that small, intentional changes can make a huge difference. We empower you to do just that by providing tools and other resources to unplug and pay close attention to the things in your life that bring you joy.
Soulful Joy was created in January 2017 to satisfy a personal need. When I turned 40 years old, it became apparent to me that I began to lose touch with who I was. I had taken on so many roles and found myself responsible for being chief nurturer for all those who cross my path. The one thing that I didn’t make time for was taking care of me.
In the fall of 2015, I had my very own “EAT, PRAY, LOVE” experience.
I took a short trip all by myself; no husband – no kids. After this adult timeout, I realized the importance of self-care: time to sit still, reflect, and breathe. This personal retreat helped me to get centered on what was important to me. In those moments, I realized how many other women were stuck just like me.
Being hopelessly optimistic and obsessed with helping others, I begin creating retreat basket for my friends in hopes that they too would be encouraged to take a timeout. A few friends offered to pay me to make baskets for their friends and this was the seed idea for Soulful Joy gift boxes.
Now I find great joy in curating quarterly and custom special occasion gift boxes to encourage and uplift women and remind them to make every effort to “Mind Your Joy”. I also host small group “Destination Retreats” for those times when you too need an Adult Timeout.
