The dessert tray was still full with mini cheesecakes (3 flavors!) and gigantic creme brulee when the most recent Women's Salon Series concluded. Speaker Daisy Jenkins gave the keynote about her challenges as an African American growing up, getting educated, and getting a job in America. Hard to believe that closed mindedness is still so rampant in our modern world. But more than 100 women left the event with new insight - I hope!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
