We'll see you next time.

Thanks for joining our first #blkminchat. Join us next time with special guest Barbara of @JacqsOrganicspic.twitter.com/dbU5DfoJug

If you missed the chat, you can read the full conversation here. Mark your calendars for our next chat on minimalist beauty with special guest, Barbara of Jacqs Organics.

One more thing, the chat was awesome! We continued tweeting for another hour after the event was finished. It was a great bonding experience. I know that may sound corny, but the minimalist journey can be very lonely in real life. So, when you find your tribe and connect with them, it's a great feeling.

What topics would you like to discuss in a future #BLKMINCHAT? Let me know in the comments.
