How It Started

One night in early 2012, some of our men friends decided to host “Man’s Night In”; a boys-only get-together that involves movies and drinking games. So we women folk decided to have a soiree of our own. We planned an outing to an improv show and ended the night with a chocolate fountain fondue party!  The fountain didn’t work as expected, but the company was fantastic. Well, we got to talking and laughing, and then suddenly we came up with an idea! “We should do this all the time!” We all live and work with a lot of men and very few women, so this small band of Midwestern transplants is clinging to the feminine camaraderie that we experienced together. In fact, we wanted all women to experience it! Naturally, we decided to start a blog to share our thoughts, questions, and experiences with women everywhere in an open and honest way.
