The Good for You Gathering: A Night for Non-Moms
Finding Your Purpose When It Isn’t Parenting
If parenting is “the toughest job in the world,” what does that say about those of us who aren’t making it ours? This month we’re coming together to talk truth about finding our purpose when it isn’t parenting. The gathering will start with a casual time of socializing from 7:00-7:30pm, followed by a facilitated conversation from 7:30 – 9:00pm. Heavy appetizers will be served, along with bubbly water, a signature cocktail, and wine. Think happy hour meets mini-retreat with the best noncompliant crew ever. Register here.
