this time of year, we are all thinking about gathering. we might gather together in cozy groups of family and friends, or we might gather in tribes of like-minded souls. where we all are a bit internet weary these days the steady, organic pull towards soul-filled and in-person connections is a trend that is becoming so important, if not absolutely necessary. i feel deeply in my own life the desire to sit in tight circles of kindred women, to stoke the fires of community and come together for the common purpose of simply sharing a moment together, face to face. there is something so nurturing, grounding, and inspiring about the alchemy that happens when we arrive and revel in a shared experience of togetherness… yes.
your Wishful Living Mission: create a get-together, gather your near and dears (even if just one or two), and lean in, laugh, listen, celebrate and share with one another a big juicy slice of life! one of my favorite things to do is to create a memorable experience for people whether it’s over a simple but good cup of coffee, or complete with handmade decor, goodie bags, and an abundant spread of delicious food, you can make the time together meaningful and special. here a few yummy and gorgeous reads to help inspire your upcoming gathering:
* Kinfolk Magazine
* Mingle Magazine by Somerset Studios
* Great Get-Togethers by Anna and Lizzie Post
* Great Parties by Martha Stewart
* Naturally Fun Parties for Kids by Anni Daulter with Heather Fontenot
just remember to add your own simple touches. share what is uniquely you. that is, after all, what those who gather around you truly love!
