Getting Together

Pavlova covered in sliced kiwi, strawberry, and bananas

This past weekend I was invited to a local get together and I got to catch up with a couple of friends, meet a few in person that I’d only talked to online and also be introduced to some others for the very first time.  Nerve-wracking to be sure.  But, I was so completely honored to have been invited and so glad that I was able to go.  We had a couple of ladies from Canada, one from California, two from Nashville, and so on.

I had a fantastic time and there was so much amazing food (see the Pavlova our hostess made above – photo courtesy of one of the other attendees).  We had some planned shopping outings as well as dinner out each night.  I mostly behaved myself on the shopping!  But, as you can see on my previous post, I had lots of inspiration going on, so there will probably be polish shopping and swatching going on here soon!

It really is so amazing to get together with women who share the same interests and be able to share, laugh, support and inspire each other.  And I loved floating between conversations and also sitting still and just listening to the flow go on around me.

So, that’s what I’m loving this week – getting together and enjoying the company of other women.

And I thought I’d spend a few minutes and list some other things I’m grateful for this week:

  • Pretty polish on my nails
  • Coca Cola in a bottle (Mexican Coke!)
  • Listening to A Little Crazy on my iPod that I’d forgotten was on there
  • Meeting someone that was so helpful and kind to my dad
  • Ramses and Thutmose sleeping with us at night
