Hi, I’m Lori! I stopped drinking at the end of 2019, and it was the best decision I ever made. But it was also lonely. I didn’t have any friends who didn’t drink, and I couldn’t relate to my drinking friends in the same way as before. It was HARD!
To celebrate my one-year soberversary, I launched a website, GetConnectedAF.com. And then I started working on building connections. That’s how Sober Slumber Parties came to be. I rent a big AirBnB and invite alcohol-free women to join me for a weekend of support, connection and big fun.
Now, I’m coming up on three years sober and have successfully hosted Sober Slumber Parties throughout the Midwest. I met Angey at our Indianapolis Sober Slumber Party, and she felt called to help. So together we’re launching this new page with big plans for more connection, more communication channels and more sober goodness.
Thanks for being here. Stick around to find out what else is in store!
PS - I live in central Illinois with my husband, teenage daughter and two dogs.
Hi! I’m Angey and I have been alcohol free for 3 years, 8 months, 26 days, 7 hours, 11 minutes and 20 seconds at the time I am writing this. But, who is counting? I thought life would be completely over without alcohol. It was a huge part of my life for approximately 20 years and I didn’t know who I was without it. I didn’t even know there could be an Angey without it, honestly.
I never imagined that life could be the way it is without booze. It’s good. It’s really good. I have been married for almost 10 years and I have year old twin boys. I live in McCordsville, IN.
I can’t wait to meet you and share more of my story. I am glad you are here. We women need each other. It’s hard to find women that don’t drink. We need a safe space and we need a community. This is your space. We have you. Welcome.
