Last night, the Junior League of Birmingham hosted a social event to help members to mix and mingle.
It was a cold January night, but my friend Corinne and I bundled up and headed out for a night of fondue at The Melting Pot.
I absolutely loved it. A room full of new and old friends, glorious cheese fondue and (my favorite) this flaming "turtle" chocolate fondue with caramel and pecans.
Our table of seven talked and talked - about movies, books, travel and our personal projects for the year. As I sat there, I couldn't help but think how lucky I was to be a part of this outstanding organization.
I had a room full of smart, fun-loving volunteers and all the time in the world to talk to them - fantastic.
