Expanding Your Knowledge in Acadiana
I believe self-care can take many forms. As much as I love a facial or massage, part of my definition of self-care includes expanding my knowledge in some way. This weekend, there will be a collection of seminars and parties for you to do just that. You can sharpen your communication skills, meet like-minded women and much more. I fall more in love with the world the more I go out of my way to learn more about it, and I hope you do, too.
There is also a rather cheeky Valentine’s Day celebration for good measure.
