Neighborhood Girl's Night Out

Something about me - I love where I live, the small town feel and the Mayberry mentality. Well that's my perception of it and it makes me happy. Often times, I find myself yearning for a simpler time before internet,cell phones, etc. Seems to me there is so much more pressure and stress that revolves around keeping up with all the technology, all the things we 'have' to do and supposed to do. Just a lot of pressure - Yuck!

I'm always striving to find ways to manage the everyday stress and pressure of life and a few weeks ago I thought about just getting back to the basics, simplifying. Kinda the "Everything you need to know in life you learned in Kindergarten" I guess.

So, I've decided the first thing I want to work on is building relationships and what better place to start than at home - my neighborhood? I want to get to know my neighbors and build relationships and friendships with them. I'm that person that has several ideas but not as much action which is something else I'm trying to improve. I've tasked myself with a call to action - I'm going to start hosting a monthly Girl's Night Out for the women neighborhood.

Think I'll have some light refreshments, chocolate, some music and they'll get to go home with a thank you card - what do you think? Want to start building and growing relationships in your life? Challenge yourself like I did and let me know how it goes!
