Book Club Anniversary

April 9, 2013


A little over a year ago I invited a few friends to start a book club.  I’ve written a few posts about some of the things we’ve done, including the month I hosted and then another night that some of us painted beautiful pictures on canvas.

I don’t think I’ve ever shared how Book Club was started.  It started for a couple of reasons.  First, because a few years ago I started listening to audio books nonstop and found myself needing recommendations on what books to should read next as well as a way to share all the wonderful books I was reading.  Second, I was just hoping to get a group of women together, many of them friends of mine who I felt I just wasn’t seeing enough. And third, I had heard several people talk about how much they loved their book club.  I don’t know if I ever realized how much more this book club was going to be.

In March we celebrated our 1 Year Anniversary! It was the first time, the entire year, that all of us were able to attend and we had a blast reminiscing over the past year.  Over the last 12 months, collectively, we’ve experienced a lot (so many good but not all) and I love that we’ve had each other to share those experiences with, to celebrate with, to contemplate with, and just to confide in with.  Many of our gatherings are less about the books we’ve read that month and more about the stories that we create together.  Here are just a few pictures of our anniversary party!
