July 28, 2023 was the annual Plexus Summer Soiree and it did not disappoint!
I hadn’t been out for a bit, making me anxious to get out this day. I took my time getting ready and headed out the door, with no real agenda to kill off four hours until the event began. I had recently purchased a few workout dresses at Nike and when I got ready to wear one, I realized they did not have any pockets. Pockets are quite necessary to hold a car key and music, so back they went!
After that, I hit Urban Outfitters simply to try on some way-to-young-for-me dresses. I haven’t really done that for quite a while. In my early days of being a woman, I frequently went out simply to try on clothing. I had forgotten how much fun that is!
I then went to Olive Garden for my dinner, sitting at the bar. I chatted most of the time with the bartender, a very talkative fellow. A lovely way to enjoy my meal!
Finally, I hit a Ross Dress for Less and again, tried on so many different dresses. The dress I was wearing, which garnered quite a few compliments all day, was very easy to get in and out of, making for just a wonderfully fun and feminine time for me.
Then I headed to the event and really just relaxed and enjoyed myself. I saw friends, acquaintances, and made new friends throughout the early evening.
Then I met just a wonderful human being. Ellen was there with her sister and brother-in-law. She and I talked for probably two hours and we promised to have a girls’ lunch out very soon. You can see here how happy she was and that I had a few…….
Just such a great outing for me!
