You know those fancy, Pinterest-worthy events you see photos of on Instagram? Ya know, the well-lit photos of white women dressed in their cutest brunch attire, drinking mimosas and all appearing to be best friends?
Everytime I scrolled past photos from one of those brunches, blogger meet-ups, mixers etc., I often found myself secretly wishing there were more events like them where women like myself were not only invited, but felt valued and appreciated.
After binge-watching The Great British Bake-Off and watching more cooking documentaries and TV shows than I could count, I decided I wanted to cook for a group of people. At first, I didn’t know what I wanted to cook or who I wanted to cook for, so everytime an idea came to me, I jotted it down on my white board. Before I knew it, I had a name, menu, audience, and purpose.
I didn’t just want to cook for people. I wanted to inspire them. And not just people...women. Specifically, women of color. I wanted not only their stomachs to be full, but their soul.
When developing the idea of Brunch for the Soul, I wanted to offer a meaningful event for women to make real and lasting personal and business relationships with other growing women. I envisioned a monthly to bi-monthly event where women could get dressed up, drink, eat, laugh, grow and connect.
Now, with the third Brunch for the Soul on February 24, I can happily say my vision has come to life. At this chapter of Brunch for the Soul, we will be celebrating Galentine’s Day in the best way possible. From bottomless rosé mimosas and a brunch buffet to girl boss guest speakers, I couldn’t be more excited.
