Last Thursday was my first foray into an event curated by the blog. As a reminder I partnered with the shop Perican Bing for a madre’s night out shopping party. You can read more about Dominga and her shop here & here. I definitely learned a few things in hosting an event like this for the first time and reminded myself of a few things too.
First off, I am still quite shy about this blog. It has been two years and most people who know me in real life, not blog life, don’t even know that I have this little live journal out in the world. So maybe I could do a better job of self-promoting in my day to day as I enjoy sharing these anecdotes on life these days.
And second, next time I do one of these things I should be clear that these aren’t exclusive ‘moms only’ events. Trust me, my friends without kids are the BEST FRIENDS I have got. And no mom wants to be typecast and relegated to mom only friendships. That’s the whole point of this blog. To present my life as a madre through the lens and language of adulthood. Something all of my peers can appreciate and relate to. So moving forward I will always caveat that these Mom’s Night Out events are open to dog, cat and god moms too. I likely won’t be dropping the Mom’s Night Out verbiage though cause I love the ring of it!
All in all the event was a really nice night out. Friends, co-workers and fellow madres came to support and I even left the shop with two new & favorite items. These silk pants & the perfect gold bracelet. I am considering a few more events and would love to hear any ideas. Again, thanks to those of you who supported.
