Note from Danita: This is the last in a three part series about being part of a girls’ group — even if you need to start it yourself. In Part 1, I explain the importance of being part of a group of women. In Part 2, I outlined the process my friend Jen and I used to start ours. Feel free to go back and read those if you haven’t already. Go ahead. I’ll wait. This post describes our first dinner together as a group and a bit more of why this connection is vital in my life.
Step 3 — The First Gathering
We chose the 2nd Tuesday of November 2012 for our first evening together. I hosted. After all, the whole thing was my idea, so I should kick it off. Six of eight of us were able to attend that first night.
True confession: I
probably definitely overdid the setting of the table. I was in the process of starting this blog. Since I write about conversations around a dinner table, I saw a great opportunity to have Jen take pictures of the table for me to use on this site. I’ve since changed my heading, but for the first two years, I used the picture below — our table at the inaugural Girls’ Night.
