Friends with "Benefits"!

I recently posted about how hard it is to get out the door and visit friends in flesh and blood. But as I went through my calendar, I WAS able to tear myself away from the office FIVE times over the last month or so. And the “benefits” cannot be ignored.

I am lucky I live in a town with SO many entrepreneurial-driven gals!

I think I am going to do a 5-segment posting on these gals, cause I don’t want to cut any of them short!

The first lunch I had was with Carrie Sommer of Sommer Designs. We met through a women’s business group called Ladies Who Launch (I highly recommend them to anyone who wants, is or has launched a business.

We had lunch in Santa Monica, CA at Border Grill…a favorite Mexican/South American restaurant of mine! The food there is SO yummy! We started with Green Corn Tamales and Guacamole. Then for lunch I had Turkey Tostadas...OMG..Yum! Then, for dessert, we shared one of my faves: Pastel Rufina…sweet, creamy, chocolate chunky, goodness. (Sounds like a KLEAN Sugar Polish…lol).

While we were there, Carrie said she would send me one of her Lavender Liners. And she did! While I am not a huge fan of lavender, I DO like it in certain situations. And this was one of them. You can place it in a drawer (I put it with my undies–probably too much info for you. 🙂 OR you could pack it in a suitcase to travel with and have lovely scented clothes when you arrive at your destination. What a great idea!! (Thank you, Carrie).

We were able to chat about our businesses and experiences, but had to part ways. I was so glad we made the time.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s gal pal get together!
