Monday night was a special Ladies Night Out at The Center on Central, in Paoli, Pennsylvania. I love Katie Opher, who is the owner/director and it was fun spending the evening with her and a gathering of interesting women.
I got some favorite earrings repaired by jeweler Gina Galli of Beadeologie. She teaches classes at the Center and watching the expertise in her hands as she quickly fashioned my once clip ons into pierced earrings was amazing.
We all had a fabulous foot reflexology session with Margaret Welsh Reiki Master/Teacher and a gentle effective chair massage from Cortiva student Kathe Schad so really got our pampering on!
Claire Phillips of Home Cooked in Paoli was there with her yummy apricot brie, apple crisp, scones and more. What a great concept they have! Home Cooked prepares your food. You just pick it up from them, take it home, pop it in the oven and presto! And the prices per serving are honestly not much more than what it would cost to make it yourself.
I also met a lovely woman named Deborah Bettcher from Decorating Den Interiors. After spending many years using her creativity and compassion as an art therapist she is now helping people with their environments as an interior designer.
