We're about two weeks out from our big launch event at the Honolulu Design Center's Cupola Theater, I wanted to share with you why a Girl's Night Out is so important.
Let me tell you a story about a Girl's Night Out I went to a few years ago....It was 2010, I was a 23 year old young mother, living overseas, thousands of miles from my family and support system. My days were spent chasing my 2 under 2, changing diapers, and cleaning sippy cups.
I came across a Facebook event for a Girl's Night Out that one of my acquaintances (a mom from my kid's playgroup) was going to. I basically invited myself, and that has been one of the most important decisions I have ever made.
The friendships that started that night blossomed into my most treasured friendships. These are now the girls that I consider my tribe, my best friends, and my sisters. We've been through births, deployments, moves, divorces, near death experiences and so much more together. These are the girls I can turn to for literally anything and I know they will be there to back me up. We're spread all over the world now, but we are as close as we ever were and chat every day.
In fact, if I hadn't gone that night, there might not be a Honolulu Housewives at all, because Kristen of Charlotte Housewives was there that night, and is one of those girls, and she's why I started with Housewives in the City. All because I forced myself to attend a Girl's Night Out.
You might not believe this, but I'm actually an introvert, I tend to hold up in my house and not go anywhere. It took a lot for me to go that night, but I knew it was important to get out of my house, get dressed up, and socialize. We need the women in our lives to help lift us up when we're down, ladies we can turn to for advice, girls that we can depend on.
Maybe you're in the same situation I was in all those years ago, maybe you're new to the island and far from everyone you know, maybe you're just looking for an excuse to dress in something other than your daily yoga pants---if that sounds like you, I would encourage you to come to our event on July 21st, I would love to meet you.
