New: to here & to each other

As an Empty Nester Transplant, I have explored much of our new city, including groups to meet new people. Recently, my ENT friend, Kim D., happened upon another group of newbies to STL. She and I met to meet these new people who are new to the area and it was quite successful.

Friends start with a “Hello!”

A group that began as two people, quickly grew to seven, as we introduced ourselves, shared our home history, current jobs, and entered into a lively conversation. Our flexibility was tested as we moved from one table of four inside the crowded bar area to an outside table of seven, displaced by the looming heavy-dropping rains, then back inside to a high-top table set up for our group. Kudos to Kim, Taylor, Lindsay, Kris, (another) Denise, Katie, and me, for being vulnerable and adventurous. Until our next get-together…

If you move from one city to another, ever, you’ll know how important it is to get out and meet new people. Just say, “Hello” and see what happens.

I love my family and friends, meeting new people, travel, food (Gluten-Free, please), and laughing. My mantra is HAVE FUN EVERYDAY. I am grateful, blessed and adventurous. I like to do NDBs (never done before.) I love to share my FUN life.
