Don’t you just love those two words!  Makes you giggle just to say them.  Our upcoming Flourish event is all about being “tickled pink”, “in the pink” and all things pink & girlie – pampering, playing, indulging, shopping, eating, drinking, girlfriends, chatting, and laughing.  We’ve got it all put together into one fabulously fun afternoon in Portland’s South Waterfront at the beautiful Rilassi Coffee House.    Tickled Pink is for women of all ages who are ready to carve out a little bit of me time and get their PINK on.   Hope you can join us!

Here’s an invitation with more details or go to the Flourish website and sign up.

“Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

I have always held the belief that when “we the people” put our minds and our hearts together for good, good things really can happen.    This truth was never more evident than when a group of amazing women came together on November 2nd at the Oregon Golf Club to hear Vicky Trabosh speak on The Power of Your Journey.

Vicky Trabosh is changing the lives of the people of Rwanda itafari by itafari (brick by brick).  Her powerful presentation was truly an inspiration.  Speaking from her heart and sharing her stories and photographs of her most recent trip to Rwanda on behalf of her non-profit organization, The Itafari Foundation, Vicky touched each of our hearts.   We laughed, we cried, we learned so much about Vicky’s personal journey, the journey of the people of Rwanda and even our own journey.  We can all make a difference and we can do it itafari by itafari ~ just like Vicky.

Thank you to all the amazing women who shared this afternoon.  Together we raised over $2,000 for Itafari.  That’s a lot of bricks!
