Something has come up and I need your help.
Tim Ringgold (Bella's dad) emailed me yesterday and said that he, Ang, and Ali are coming here, to Winston-Salem, later this week. And Tim would like to have a get together between our two families and anyone else who reads either or both of our blogs and would like to come. It will be a great time of meeting one another, hanging out, and celebrating Bella and the love and support we've found in each other.
But we don't have much time! (Tim, you and your visionary spirit are KILLING me and my Type A/Planner personality... but I'll forgive you, this time.)
So, this coming Friday, October 29, please join us for a potluck dinner at Bolton Park Shelter at 5:00 (I'll probably be there a little early, and there's a playground right there, so feel free to come earlier).
What: a Potluck dinner celebrating Community and remembering Bella
When: Friday, October 29
Time: 5:00pm-7:30pm (or dark, whichever comes first)
Where: Bolton Park, large shelter
Here's what I need from you -
I have NO IDEA how many to expect. It could be 20. It could be 200. That's why I decided to do Potluck style, so no matter how many people come, there will be enough food. I'll plan on getting napkins, cups, plates, and forks/spoons. I need y'all to bring drinks, main dishes, sides, and desserts.
Please email me if you plan on coming and let me know what you would like to bring. I just don't want us to get 40 Bundt Cakes and no real food, know what I mean?
You can email me at momtobabyjonut (at) gmail (dot) com and let me know.
I hope we can see you there.
PS - If this doesn't work out and we don't get much response, we'll change it to BYOFF (Bring Your Own Fast Food) and everyone can just bring food and drinks for your own family. But I'd like to try the Potluck idea first, because dang it, we're The South, people, and that's just what we do.
Looking forward to meeting as many of you as can come! Hooray!
