This is my 3rd annual Ladies Brunch! Every year on the Sunday after New Year’s a group of my girlfriends get together for a fun morning of food, friendship & gifts! This year we had 10 ladies attend, we went to the Scottsdale Hyatt Regency. Their brunch is amazing! They have mouthwatering crab legs, omelet bar, & banana’s foster! I can go on and on about their food, and of course they keep the mimosa’s flowing! (don’t worry, we have designated drivers)
The reason I love this event is because I get to start the year off connecting with women who are important to me! I believe it’s crucial to take time out of our busy lives to connect with other women and simply enjoy life with them. If I am not intentional about spending time with my girls, months can go by and moments are missed. I want to encourage everyone to set up a time to get together each year. Start the tradition in 2015 and don’t look back.
Each year we do a gift exchange and this year the theme was to bring something that made you feel beautiful! It was so fun to see what the girls brought. I enjoyed seeing what made them feel beautiful. It helps me get to know a little bit more about them.
We had makeup, scarves, hats and jewelry!
This year we shared what our goals are for 2015! I loved hearing a piece of their heart. It was nice that everyone felt comfortable sharing their goals. When we share, we are able to support each other. These women are strong, faithful, kind, passionate and confident. Who better to have supporting me when I start struggling with a goal? I know they will be able to encourage me and keep me accountable. Some of the goals for this year are: running a half marathon, paying off debt, intentionally celebrating friends, and choosing happiness. I shared my goals for 2015 here. I look forward to cheering my friends on towards their goals and I look forward to seeing them accomplished at our 2016 brunch.
What traditions are you going to start with your girlfriends this year?
