We all want a good life. For our loved ones. For ourselves. But it takes energy, stamina and community to make it happen. Especially over the long run. The better you’re doing, the more you have to give. Time for a night to focus on YOU.
Learn easy, practical, and proven ways to improve your health, mental health and supports. Meet other fabulous parents who “get it.” Join us for a fun night of delicious food, great company and fresh ideas on self-care.
P.S. There WILL be chocolate!
See you there!
