And They're Off - Celebrating Friendship

On Saturday, I had a wonderful time getting together with some inspirational ladies. It was my sorority, Delta Gamma's Founders Day. It's a day to celebrate the reason we share the bonds of friendship and sisterhood with members of Delta Gamma all around the world. It was a fantastic theme of Derby Days and we all wore dresses and hats to the beautiful outdoor brunch. My dear and talents friends Callie and Emily planned the day flawlessly!
Sara Cate and Callie - don't you love the hats! I found mine at an antique store.
Love these ladies! (you may recognize them all from my Sonoma Trip. Miss L is on the right.)
Not only was it great to see Delta Gamma collegians and alumni who have impacted my life in so many ways, but it was also a time to share what we mean to one another. Our speaker, Delta Gamma, Dr. Sue Stanek gave an eye-opening speech on friendships. It was so basic and clear, yet deep and moving. She shared how relationships vary, and we need to put time and effort into those relationships that serve as mentors and vital friends, not those who pull us down or take more than give. At the end of her speech, she called for all of us to think about what kind of friend others would call us in return. Check mate. That really called to my attention how I needed to evaluate my relationships AND myself. I encourage you to do the same.
Happy Friending!

I've heard peoplpe talk about friendships as investments and only taking the time to invest in those that will remain valuable and invest back in you. So very lucky to have you as one of the sisters I love to invest in! Founders Day here on Sunday :)
