Happy Hump Day Lionesses!
It has been one hell of a week this week and its only Wednesday!! I have been super busy working on some new content, services, and products for you! An
d I’m going to be taking a more specific and focused route, so that I’m not providing you with so many random topics you completely lose your mind!
Now I bet you’re wondering what I’ll be focusing on.. huh?
Weeeeellllllllllllll, You’re going to have to stay curious for a wee bit longer! I will be letting you all know more info REAL SOON! I promise! 🙂
So you are probably wondering what in the world is “Gals That Brunch Dothan?!” Well I’ll tell you…
One day I was on Instagram, just scrolling, looking through different hashtags and somewhere along the way, I came across an account called Gals That Brunch. (@GalsThatBrunch) & I thought to myself, “hey! I’m a gal who likes to brunch!” So I started digging deeper and found tons of different accounts of Gals That Brunch with different city titles attached! ( @galsthatbrunchbham is the other Chapter in Alabama.)
And it turns out that there are Chapters in 24 States and 29 Cities! Tiffany Accardi founded Gals That Brunch in 2015 when she moved from Colorado to Virginia Beach for a new job she had accepted. Tiffany didn’t know ANYONE in the new place she called home, so she created a way for herself to meet new friends by creating Gals That Brunch! In my opinion this is such a creative and wonderful way to meet new people and make new friends! And how brave of Tiffany to put herself out there like that! What if no one shows up?? Fortunately, that wasn’t a problem for her because 30 women ended up going to the first ever brunch!
Since then, Gals That Brunch has grown tremendously and still continues to grow as you are reading this post!!
After stalking a bunch of Gals That Brunch Instagram accounts and then finally their blog, I decided to step outside my comfort zone and email Tiffany and tell her that I was interested in starting a Chapter in my hometown, Dothan, Alabama. After staring at my email for several minutes I hit send!!
To my surprise, Tiffany emailed me back the next day and welcomed me with open arms! Honestly, I’ve never met someone so happy and bursting with love and kindness and caring for other people! And that was just through email!! Tiffany and I then scheduled a call to discuss how I could get the Dothan Chapter up and running as soon as possible!
When the day finally came for our phone meeting, God had different plans for me, and decided it was time for my best friend Brittan to go into labor (the night before) and she had her BEAUTIFUL baby boy Henry Davenport Jones! How wonderful is that name?! Don’t you just love it?!
Needless to say, I did our phone meeting from the hospital instead of a more traditional location that day! So anyway, Tiffany explained to me how everything works and what I would need to do to get things off the ground running, and told me that I would be the City Leader of the Dothan Chapter of Gals that Brunch! So exciting! Well, I couldn’t wait to get started telling EVERYONE and inviting everyone and planning, etc!
So the big day is finally approaching this weekend and I’m ecstatic which is why I decided it was blog worthy! 😀
