special-friends-girlfriend-quoteShe must be something special. She is. Celebrate her. – Kobi Yamada

You know the girlfriend, don’t you? The friend who will give you a ride to the airport and make it so fun you forget that you might be an inconvenience. The sister-friend who helps you clean out your basement, arrives early to help you have a successful (and fun) garage sale, and rides around with you for hours looking for a new place to move. The friend who is there for you, honest but kind, funny and sincere.

Penny is that kind of friend. She’s a special friend. And she’s that kind of friend to all her girlfriends.

When she mentioned that she has a girlfriend in my new neighborhood I should connect with (she’s great at making connections!), a light bulb went off. I’d hold a ‘Friends of Penny’ party and invite a bunch of her girlfriends over to my new home to meet each other but also to celebrate Penny and our fabulous friendships with her.

At the ‘Friends of Penny’ party, 15 women shared snacks, wine, and fun ‘Penny stories.’ We went around and introduced ourselves with how we knew Penny. We got to know each other. Women who share Penny as a friend, found a common connection that made us all friends.

To Penny – you are Special. You are LOVED. You are a connector. You are a great girlfriend. (And I hope you enjoyed your party!)

Friends-of-Penny-Party-girlfriendsWhat friend of yours is a ‘connector’? Which girlfriend just naturally brings people together? Who would you call to take you to the airport? To help you look for an apt, find someone with a mower or pick you up from a Doctor appointment?

Why not throw a Friends of ‘Cindy Party’? Or Lynn, Jenn or Jan Party? Or have a Girls Night Out (GNO!) for girlfriends and their friends. Take on the fun challenge of throwing a party for a friend and her friends (and maybe even their friends)!

Bring friends together. There’s no way that won’t be special. Like Penny.
