The Party (Sept 27th)

Okay so now that I have you totally confused with dates LOL I don't get to BLOG every day so I just blog in order of what I'm doing. There is still so much adventure ahead of me. So this is Sept 27th day.
The local Women's Center was having a celebration of 30 years. There was face painting station, a flower weaving station and Ilka and me doing affirmation cards. I met the most incredible women there, made some new friends and had a totally wonderful time. I even got my face painted, that's on someone elses camera but I'm sure the picture will show up at some time or another. After the party we went shopping. Now in New York I would have gotten some funny looks with half my face painted in butterflies and flowers. Not here, nope just another normal face in the crowd.

Ilka waiting for things to start and Jannine a new found friend.

Wonderful food spread and someone made Butterfly cup cakes with edible glitter. Does it get any better then that?

Some people actually understood "Affirmation Card"
That blond lady in the foreground is another new friend named Vivian, very funny lady.
Then there were those who thought they had found a free card making station i.e. Birthday, Anniversary, New baby, Get Well LOL" Hey where's the envelopes for these things" 
Ilka, sweet soul that she is, found a deep  Psychological meaning where I just found a lesson in the human experience and their feelings of entitlement . I am truly a tainted new Yorker LOL It was all about the fun...
The party was a wonderful experience in cultural differences and I enjoyed every minute of it.
