Friendship is Essential to the Soul

I have realized that spending my early 20s (19-24) in Arizona has thrown a monkey wrench into my social life in Chicago. Since the majority of my girlfriends live there it's no wonder that I'm always aching to go back and have drinks with my girls, chit chat... just be out and about. All women need healthy relationships with other women - - friendships that are void of drama, jealousy, and pretentiousness. With the weather warming up and summer around the corner I am determined to find a group of like-minded females that I can share my gift of gab, drinks, shopping excursions, and love of all things wonderful with. It's funny, I kind of feel like I'm placing an ad to recruit some new friends... but really, I'm just eager to meet more people and make the city a little bit smaller and more exciting.

So, who am I? I'm a 24yo woman that loves stilettos, has a weakness for puppies, is not equipped with the skills to turn down a free drink, wants to have a 1-on-1 dance session with Laurie Ann, is hooked on reality tv, loves having real business cards from a real company, detests wearing jeans to the club, owns way too much lip gloss, secretly yearns to work for MAC, thinks having a bus pass is really like having a key to the city, is a social butterfly but not a friend that has to constantly have the limelight, overly sarcastic, extremely warm and open, and above all a loyal friend. Wow, I sound pretty amazing! I'd want to be friends with me. lol...

With all of that out of the way, my goal is to have occasional gatherings for other women that find themselves in the same position. Are you ever bored at 6p and want to grab some drinks but you don't know who to call? Better yet, the people you call flake out and therefore you're left wishing you had a larger network of female friends? I know that everyone has been there before and thru blogging I've found other women in the Chicago area that seem like interesting people.

I'm planning a happy hour for Friday, April 17th. What could be better than drinks, great appetizers, convo, female bonding... and did I mention drinks? I'm still deciding where to go but if your schedule is open and you'd be interested in coming shoot me an email!
