Question: What do tonight’s Oscars and Must Love Shoes now have in common?
Answer: Zoe’s Chocolates!
This afternoon we toasted a new chapter in the Must Love Shoes journey with champagne, chocolate, and some fabulous shoes, with an important announcement:
Must Love Shoes is on the move!
On October 4th ,5th, and 6th of this year, we’ll be taking it to Bethany Beach for our debut into boutique-style women’s retreats. Designed to be smaller and more personalized than other getaways, we’re stepping out with our own Must Love Shoes signature brand of events. “Trainer Rick” will be in the house, along with one of Bethany’s leading chefs and restauranteurs, who will be cooking up a big surprise. Event planning and coordination will be provided by Kelly Beach of Vicarious Travel. Registration will open in July so mark your calendar to sign up for the first of many “Sunshine, Soles, and the Sea” women’s retreats.
In October of 2014, Must Love Shoes is going to Italy!! We’ll be experiencing our own version of Under the Tuscan Sun when we journey across the ocean to enjoy the beauty of the Italian countryside, great food, and of course, Italian shoes! Our trip, once again coordinated by Vicarious Travel will find us “retreating” in a beautiful medieval castle with ample opportunities for meandering over cobblestoned streets. So start saving your pennies now because 2014 will be here before you know it and this will be the perfect opportunity to see Italy the “Must Love Shoes” way!
And while you’re marking your calendars, plan to attend the third annual “Soles of Love in the Garden” garden party/charity event held at my home on Friday, August 2nd. Last year over 120 women were in attendance and we collected in excess of 500 pairs of shoes for local children in need as well as in Nigeria. This year we have some additional surprises planned so you won’t want to miss it.
Remember, it’s not about the shoes but it is about the life you live in them. And in 2013, we’re living large! I sure hope you will be part of it.
