Social Dinner at FGL Store

There are few socially acceptable ways to talk to strangers.
Our dinners bring potential new friends together, unexpected conversations with unknown people.

Here in Sweden, everyone needs to step out of their comfort zone a bit more often, I feel.
FGL organised a social dinner at our store last night and it was such a treat.

From start to finish our day was rather busy. Kristin finished our slide show just in time whilst I was tasting the stew at 17.59 just in time before guests arrived.
WE THOUGHT!

18.10 – still no show. At this point we started to feel we may of organised it for the wrong day?!
After checking the invitations, luckily it said 18.30! Relief!

Panic over, we had 20 minutes to spare. Instagram stories and final check on the food.

11 girls gave us their honour this evening. Many drove for hours to join. We’re so grateful.
The evening started with a toast and sharing our story of how it all started.
Rewind to 2012. Was a bit emotional talking about it all, what a journey we’ve been on from the beginning up until today. Seeing old photos and sharing it with many filled our hearts.

At the table we all introduced ourselves. Followed by the nights topic; Courage.
Listening to each and everyone was beautiful. We all agreed that sitting around a table sharing our life stories is not at all scary.
In-fact the opposite – It’s amazing. I hope we organise another dinner soon.
This quote made me think earlier, thought it was very beautiful….

”We want to make the world a friendlier place, and we believe we can, because all friends were once strangers”

Right now I’m getting ready for Varbergs galan, along with the other 699 other people who are attending I guess.
Tonight I’ll borrow Kristins green dress – luckily it is ‘awrap’ because mama has grown a lot lately.

FGL Store has been nominated for an environmental prize – sat, wondering, can Kristin and I win this? FGL Store and two other companies…

Wish us luck!
