SAVE THE DATE #LoveMeFirst Why do we think that we have to love and serve everyone else before we give that love, care and attention to ourselves? This afternoon we will be listening to a panel of women who know 1st hand how important it is to put themselves at the top of their list of priorities. Join us as we nut out any beliefs or ideals that says we should place others ahead of ourselves and perhaps walk our with ourselves at the top of the list, knowing it is the most loving gift we could ever give another. A wonderful nurturing afternoon. This event is sponsored by Event Cinemas
