Free Moms Network Event

One thing we don't do enough of as moms is celebrate each other's accomplishments. To help rectify this, I'm hosting what I hope will become a recurring Networking event for all moms. It's at the Maple Grove library on May 23 from 7-8:30.

This is designed to allow some grown up conversation outside the family and allow us all to share our talents building a stronger community.

All moms welcome! Stay at home-, career track-, work from home-, business owner- -mom.

Hope to see you there!
