Hello Savvy, Sexy, & Social Ladies,
I can’t believe December is here, 2019 is just around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I always find myself deep in thought during this time. First of all, because I think it is the most wonderful time of the year, we have the celebration, and recognizing the true meaning of the Holidays; we are hanging out with family, friends, and decorating our homes. I also realize, it is a very difficult time for a lot of people out there, especially for those who lost a loved one, people with financial struggles, or health issues who can’t celebrate the same way. I think that it is a time to be more sensitive, look around us, and be appreciative of what we have or what we don’t have. Sometimes a little gesture matters or goes a long way, be generous, be kind. On another note, it’s also the time when we go back and reflect on the things we’ve done right in the year and the things we haven’t done right, and then set goals for what we want to accomplish for 2019. Remember, life is made of choices, have you made your choices for the upcoming year yet? If not, what are you waiting for?
Highlight of my last two weeks! Want to share yours too??
The really big highlight I am so excited to share with you, is The District’s Holiday Boat Parade, after winning one of the awards last year, we came in with tempered expectations. But then WT??? We WON again, third place in show out of 58 boats so we are very proud and happy. Can’t wait for next year!
Sending Love to Paradise
First of all, I would like to take a moment to thank you all for your generosity and your donations. A special thank you Scarlett for being there and the other ladies that plan to help! At this point, we are in desperate need of volunteers to help box and sort all the donations that we have received. Please remember that our time is the most valuable thing we can give. So please step up and help us to box and sort all the donations.
I was helping at the warehouse boxing and sorting the donations and working on the newsletter at the same time, Janina came all the way out to Gaithersburg so we worked on the newsletter and get it out to you.
Please ladies, I know we all have busy schedules but we can make time to volunteer.
I would kindly ask for you to let us know in advance if you plan on coming.
Where: 16021 Industrial Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20877 @ Bay 12 (back side garage door)
Let Yourself Fly Becoming The Butterfly
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 27- DECEMBER 11, 2018
SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE BY MIDNIGHT DEC. 11TH
Sign-up at the link below
It’s Thanksgiving and the perfect time to count the many blessings in our lives. Forward this to someone you know that could use a makeover.
As you all know, I look to empower, encourage, and support other women. With this goal in mind, I am holding an annual makeover opportunity to inspire other women to become the butterfly they truly are. Transformation sometimes comes from the inside; however sometimes it starts from the outside.
When we decide to love ourselves by wearing nice clothes, doing our hair, make-up, getting our nails done and taking good care of our body, we can make ourselves feel better and we can encourage our own inner transformation.
If you are reading this and know anyone, including yourself, that is less privileged, and needs a makeover, please let them know!

WOMEN & WISDOM
What a great event, thank you Meryl with Savvy Business Network, and Eva Scott with Integrity Financial Solutions. We had a panel with myself and two other amazing speakers, there were 4 tables filled with women, about 40 women came. This was all about lessons as a business owner, learning, being a business owner, what it takes to be successful and how do we define success. Here's a video Janina took during the talk.
If you missed it, stay tuned. Our next one is in January.
The District's Holiday Boat Parade Party
There were 18 of us total and some of the ladies came with their hubbies. We had fun. After finding out we won in third place, we had one more reason to celebrate and be happy!
SIR SUNDAY AT SAX
I really enjoyed my time with Martina and Claudia. Sometimes it's hard for me to have one on one time with you all. Since we didn’t have a large group, we really had this personal time together and I had great quality time with them. However, as I was there for the second time, this time I really felt that I didn’t belong there. It wasn’t the right place for me. Although, I think it's fine for single ladies. Please don’t take offense to this, but as a Godly married woman I just felt like it wasn’t appropriate for me. Even though I didn't do anything wrong, I just felt in my heart that I had to pray extra this week. BTW, when I went 2 years ago, I didn’t feel the same way I thought it was ok, but please understand I am not judging anyone. We are always growing and changing. I have to be real here and I have to be honest, I can’t lie to you all.
Sending you all birthday wishes, with many smiles, laughter and joy for the upcoming year!
Since I’m not winterizing the boat, it'll nice, warm and cozy, maybe we can get together for drinks on my boat at the Marina.
Please send us your Birthday info
(Day and Month)
