About last night…arrived home from a 3 hour road trip and immediately wrapped my favorite apron around my waist to prepare an intimate 4 course dinner and formal tea for a party of 5. It was a special celebration for my client, a young lady who is college bound in August. A month ago, her parents contacted the New School of Etiquette and requested a series of private social protocol and etiquette sessions. The transformation I’ve witnessed with this young lady has been absolutely wonderful. As a finale to her sessions, she served as our gracious host for the entire evening. From greeting her guests and engaging each of us in delightful conversation to introducing each dinner course and explaining the do’s and don’ts of European and American style dining, she navigated the room and dining table with impeccable grace and ease. I am honored that I was able to play a small role in the beginning of her personal and professional adult life. The life skills she’s mastered will undoubtedly last a lifetime, and that for me is 100% validation I am living and giving in the light of my purpose and passion.
