|National Girlfriends Day - August 1|
One of the things I enjoy most about the feminine differential is the "closeness" that girlfriends have. An openness and comrade that reflects a bond that women enjoy together. Almost like having a membership in an exclusive club.

Lunch at the Oak and Ember Restaurant
Monday I attended a new meetup group, "Treasure Coast Social Women". About fourteen women got together for an elegant, long lunch at a downtown Stuart, FL restaurant. We met at 11:45 and stayed until about 2:00 pm. There was laughter, shared stories and reflection on being a woman of our age. The conversations went from silly to serious; always enlightening and fun.
All attending are now Florida gals, however from all over; Alabama, Oregon, several New York, Ohio, New Jersey, and me, Virginia. Three were also native Floridians, from Miami to Fort Lauderdale.
I was one of the five (5) new members that day and many knew each other from past events. I was invited to be a "regular" and "be sure" to attend upcoming Meetup gatherings; I will.

I am not hiding or trying to be stealth, just being myself. I am open about being a blog writer and always invite all of my Meetup girlfriends to explore it.
Of the four woman's social groups that I attend no one has ever commented that I may not belong or am out-of-place.
I encourage you to join Meetup groups. Some are just social like the ones I attend. Others are about hobbies, travel, wine, or dinners. If the Meetup is not your cup-of-tea, nothing is lost. Then try another or start a Meetup group and see who joins.
Most important is the "Escape" and being visible - Enjoy life!
