So I finally did it people. I started W(h)ine with Lynn and while I can’t say it was a massive success I think it was a damned good start.
You see I decided to start a monthly get together called W(h)ine with Lynn. The goal was to bring all these women together that used to see each other at school, sports and the other common events we all had together because of our kids. While many of these women are not my best friends they are women who I shared 13 years of common experiences with. I know their kids and I actually know more about the kid’s lives then the parents.
So I decided to do something about it. I wrote a little ditty and sent out about 40 emails to the moms that I knew in predominantly Keely’s and Andie’s grades. Of course, I did send it at the last minute so I didn’t know what to expect.
We all met up at a local wine bar. I was surprised how many people were out of town but I guess once you’re an empty nester there’s nothing keeping you stuck in town all the time.
At any rate, I said 7-9 PM and at first there were only 4 of us. I figured it was going to be my first social fall (I’ve been throwing parties since I was in high school ya know) but eventually there were 10 of us and honestly, we had a great time.
I’m about to send out the invite for next month and hopefully with a little more notice we’ll have between 25 and 30 people. I want it to be each month and it was so much fun catching up. Anyways, if it turns out then perhaps you guys should give it a go.
Of course, you don’t HAVE to call it W(h)ine with Lynn but you probably should. I’m just kidding.
Here was the invite:
Give it a try!
