I’m a huge proponent of building sisterly bonds among women. Maybe because I grew up without siblings and later in life found myself connecting more with friends than family, I am unable to overstate the importance of these bonds. There are women who have been there for me at times when I felt even God cast a shadow of dismissal over me, so I revel in the connections I’ve made over the years.
I love being a hostess and having dinner parties. This year, I decided to start what I hope will become an annual tradition. I invited some of the women in my life to join me for a Sista Circle Potluck. The idea was to bring together women at the beginning of the year to reflect on lessons learned in the past year and think about goals for the coming year. Eating, drinking, playing games, and laughing were the only rules.
I want to thank every woman that came out and shared their thoughts and created a safe space for building and bonding.
I <3 my Sistas,
