So, I’m sort of backtracking, as the last few weekends have been eclectic and amazing, which rolls into a pretty interesting month.
My sister, Whitney, and I accompanied our Mom to Arizona, where we stayed at the Biltmore and were inducted into the Phi Mu Fraternity. My Mom has been a Phi Mu for years (since her college days) and wanted to share her incredible experience with her two daughters. Whitney and I were under the impression that we were traveling with Mom, who was the keynote speaker at the Sisterhood luncheon, for a “Girls Weekend.” We were told we would need certain outfits for certain days and activities, and didn’t ask any questions.
Little did we know, that our Mom had other plans for us! Saturday morning, Whitney and I went for a run, a nice 7 miles along the base of the mountains, before getting into our white number and heading off to the morning’s event. What did we discover? That the morning event was an induction ceremony and Mom had nominated her two girls for sisterhood!
Now, the proceedings of the ceremony are top-secret, but all in all we had a great weekend and met lots of special women, who are now our sisters. It’s now the joke when we say that our Mom is also our big sister. The Phi Mu Foundation and Organization is so well run, and we met a lot of dynamic women who truly have a passion for the Fraternity and a commitment to their sisters, to which Whitney and I are now a sister!
