Georgie's HOME Blog
Sharing ideas, inspirations and recipes that add deliciousness to life is what I'm all about. Be sure to stay tuned to my blog and stay up to date on the latest from Georgie.
I was honored to be celebrated as a 'Shero" amongst seven trailblazing women at the 2017 Women's Choice Awards Show; Alicia Garza, Brittany Packnett, Carmen Perez, Dr. Knatokie Ford, Dr. Yvonne Cagle, Miki Agrawal, and Reshma Saujani.
It was a wonderful evening celebrating women coming together to forge new paths for the next generation. In the two other categories Emma Watson and Julie Taymor were celebrated among many other inspiring women. Kathy Griffin honored Sharon Stone with a combination of raw wit and warmth. Sharon is now kindly donating furniture & homewares to A Sense of Home. YES!
I was so thrilled Yolanda from A Sense of Home was able to join me and witness all of these remarkable women in one room.
Meredith Vieira was the host and spoke about the importance of the inaugural awards ceremony on the Today Show http://www.today.com/video/meredith-vieira-opens-up-about-hosting-the-women-s-choice-award-show-939532355916
