My best friend, Celia, and I have been trying to make a date for some girl-time on the calendar for months. We live two-hours apart which makes things even more complicated. It's been quite frustrating.
I met Karen at our local coffee shop. We're new friends. I really dig her. She lives close by and emailed me a few weeks ago to inquire about some coffee and girl-time at her house this week and surprisingly, I was available.
I loved what she did. She invited eight of her coffee-friends, those gals in her life she enjoys having coffee-dates with and brought us all together for some Peet's coffee, scones, fruit and fun.
Not all of us knew each other, but that didn't last long. Like every woman I know, we were gabbing about family, faith and food in a matter of minutes. One of the gals made a point to say, "I have lots of girlfriends in different parts of my life, and have often wondered about getting them all together. If I love them, I'm sure they'll enjoy one another too!"
On that girlfriend note...I've decided to introduce you to a few friends of mine. And, you will reap the benefits. My friend's have written books, and I'd LOVE to pass on their books to you.
This week, I'll be interviewing Kathi Lipp. She's a national speaker and author of: The Marriage Project, The Husband Project, The What's For Dinner Solution.
I'll be giving away her newest book, The Me Project-21 Days to Living the Life You've Always Wanted.
Next week, I will introduce you to Erin MacPherson, author of The Christian Mama's Guide to Pregnancy. I'll be giving away this book too!
So, stick around. We're having some girlfriend time here at Blessed...
Don't forget to leave a comment below to be entered for Kathi's book, The Me Project!
I'll be announcing the winner on Friday.
