Part 2, read Part 1 and stay tuned for Part 3 this week!
I am always called to celebrate the old and the new friendships in my life! I had two wonderful weekends in August and September of friendship celebration.
One weekend was with a new set of friends where we enjoyed a potluck and shared our love for dance. It was my first time creating a potluck gathering for all of us to get to know each other and then we danced Kizomba and Bachata, my favourite dance styles at the moment! What I loved is how it all came together in a matter of 5 days with everyone working together to make it happen. I also appreciated the age range of our group from 20 years old to 65 years old. It was so wonderful to have 25 people come together to celebrate new friendship and the love of dance!
The following week was a birthday gathering for me with about 25 friends and family. We did a bistro style gathering in my living and dining room filled with great food, laughter and smiling faces. I was so happy to see friends and family mingling together and enjoying themselves. I love celebrating by having people over in the summer months and sitting and enjoying the beauty of the garden in its fullness, brightness and lushness. It always warms my heart to see everyone enjoying, relaxing and celebrating being together. To me, it was the greatest birthday present too!
We are close to yet another time of celebration with Thanksgiving this weekend. Let me know what calls you to celebrate in your life!
