Christmas Brunch

Today I was lucky enough to host our neighborhood Military Spouses Christmas Brunch. We had I believe fourteen lovely ladies attend. We had all kinds of good homemade treats to try. From white chocolate peppermint fudge to applesauce pie & mocha brownie bites! Yes folks the healthy eating went right out the window today! This was all washed down with coffee or Mimosa's - YUM! I enjoyed meeting four new ladies who I knew lived out here but had not met face to face  yet. We laughed talked "shop" about our spouses, shared some books to read & just enjoyed being in an environment where we all knew exactly what the other lady was going through at any given point in their military life. I have to say when my friend started this group up over three years ago we hoped it would take off & now to see it come to fruition is great! We all live about forty minutes from Post but have a neighborhood full of military families. We have created our own form of an FRG with out any drama. We have a super active Facebook page that gives us all a connection & support when needed. I am pleased to call these wonderful ladies friends & look forward to the next event on the calender- Secret Santa's! I have my first gift all set & ready to go- I just have to figure out how to sneak it over to the lady's house with out getting caught ?....Hmmmm I am sure I can come up with something!
