Ladies Night


Sometimes all it takes is one person to remind me how vitally important it is for women to gather and celebrate their strength, resolve and passion. Thanks to my friend Midge, I decided to host a ladies night to do just that! I pulled together a group of pretty extraordinary women, cooked up a bunch of soups and stews and simply let the evening unfold.I could not have asked for a better evening to share among friends.
Our little cozy dinner on the deck revealed that some of us are struggling with the idea of loss and a few are celebrating change. Some of us want to pare our hectic lives back and a couple are ready to take on more. And yes, one of us was even trying to get out of driving a late night carpool! Even though we all face different challenges, it was abundantly clear from the start that we all share a genuine common ground and that truth was beautifully highlighted by sharing common loaves of freshly baked bread throughout the evening.
Thanks for being a part of my life ladies! I think we are all better off because we have each other!
