On Sunday December 17th the halls of the Morris-Jumel Mansion were filled with joyful women from Upper Manhattan. Thank you to everyone who attended and everyone who supported us. This has been an amazing experience, we are so excited for what 2024 will bring. We wish everyone a happy & healthy holiday season and a happy new year! We will see you all in January!
What a wonderful celebration! Looking back at what we have “built together” and “created for one other” this year was a gift in itself. I couldn’t imagine anything better than this… and then a couple ladies decided we should host a party. I am still smiling from ear to ear thinking about Sunday’s Morris-Jumel Mansion party.
This idea for this holiday party began to form when Chandra found a women’s health champion to speak at our December gathering. Patricia insisted we find public spaces to gather, and when she mentioned the Morris-Jumel Mansion, in need of attention & fundraising, we knew she found the perfect place. So we got to work.
When we gather together, and take time to nurture ourselves and our relationships with fellow women - plans for a brighter future inevitably begin to form. Upper Manhattan ladies, we filled the halls with joy, and hope for a beautiful new year.
Friends who haven’t seen each other since the pandemic were reunited at the Morris-Jumel Mansion this weekend. Partnerships were formed between women’s organizations. Projects intended to lift our community up found a house filled with volunteers. Ladies Lemonade forged the start of a beautiful friendship with like-minded social groups. The Morris-Jumel Mansion was patroned by woman across northern Manhattan.
Thank you to everyone who attended our gathering. To everyone who could not make it to the party, we are grateful for your support!
Our assignment for the new year is to ask ourselves, “What do I want for myself, my family, my neighborhood in 2024?”
What an exciting ride this has been! I can’t wait to see what we get up to in 2024. To think I lived in NYC for this long without having you in my life. It’s just nuts. xoxo

To our guest speaker, Jen Romanello. Thank you for introducing us to “reproductive psychiatry”. I have never seen a room of women stop & give someone their undivided attention with such ease. No joke. We were literally on the edge of our seats. Thank you for your time and your expertise. We hope you will come back to join us again. We will ask the women to write in their questions, and we will post the eye opening content you generously referred us to. We are all truly grateful.

You have been our strongest supporter. You were my caterer for the women’s gathering I had to cancel the week the pandemic closed NYC. Your wonderful Inwood small business made it through tough years. You are an absolute gem. Thank you for continuing to support my efforts to gather women together. I am forever grateful.

Thank you to my God-Sister for bringing a family tradition to this magical night. The pastries looked beautiful at the event, and drew everyone in… but I forgot to warn the ladies about how addicting your Grandmother’s recipes are. The bold Rispoli women were present at our party and it felt so special. When I think of the women in my family I am reminded that we stand on the shoulders of the great woman who have come before us.

Thank you to my big sister - Patricia, Chandra and I wouldn’t have made it to the event without you, literally without you driving us there! If anyone knew the chaotic morning and afternoon that preceded the party they would have wondered how I was standing upright.e Thank you to my husband, who didn’t plan to stand at the gate to welcome each of our guests, in the rain. Thank you for how supportive & respectful you have been, all these months. I appreciate you & love you both.
We are excited to choose the Morris-Jumel Mansion as our location. We are pleased to be able to support them in their restoration projects by being patrons.
