My Girl’s Night Out in Phoenix: Beschert

Last night I was in Phoenix
on business when I stopped by the Biltmore
Fashion Park

to pick up a gift for a friend. As I approached the mall, swarms of women with
swag bags walked past by me—many of them with pink Cosmos in hand.

In an instant, I realized what I had tripped upon. Without even
knowing where I would find myself, this friendship blogger had fallen into the
Phoenix Girl’s Night Out event: two hours of food, runway fashion and fun
celebrating Sex and the City. I caught up with the group just as they were heading
from the mall to the AMC Esplanade across the street to see a special screening
of Sex to benefit the American Cancer Society.

There is a Yiddish word called beschert, which can loosely
be defined as something that is “destined” or “meant to be.” That’s the way I felt!
