Our recipe for de-stressing? Spend the evening with your girlfriend book club, enjoy some wine and appetizers, and forget all the cares of the world!
That describes my evening last night with my neighborhood book club. We have our girlfriend get-together book club (aka: wine party!) monthly, taking turns in each of our homes. The host stocks up on wine and each of us bring an appetizer or dessert to share. We always have plenty of food and wonderful conversations as we share our lives, treats and our reviews of what’s going on in the neighborhood, updates on travels and health concerns, and finally our opinions on the book.
One of the benefits of female friendship is that it reduces stress (which greatly impacts our health as well). One of the benefits of our girlfriend book club is that it’s a ‘no-stress’ book club. Reading the book is optional, attending and having a wonderful time with wonderful women is not!
We looked to our girlfriends at CookingWithCaitlin.com for another way to keep it stress-free. Not only are they some of our favorite female friends (two sisters, Caitlin and Kelly, and their BFF, Molly), but they also have lots of culinary inspiration like the CHEDDAR PUFFS APPETIZER (that just happens to be lactose intolerant-friendly!). It would be perfect for a book club or even just a Friday night of having the girls over for a girl’s night in.
Whatever you and your book club are reading, whatever you’re eating or drinking, wherever your meeting, remember to enjoy the moments with your girlfriends. Listen to the laughter. Feel the friendship and support. And just de-stress. Life is good, when you have girlfriends!
