Why Not Today? Connects 

March Luncheon!


Thursday, March 28th - 11:30am - 1pm

Kalypso's Sports Tavern, Reston


Our Guest Speaker for March is

Laura Carney, Author of "My Father's List"


I first saw Laura on CBS This Morning on Father's Day sharing her story!  I immediatly ordered the book and loved it!  I reached out to Laura in the Fall to be a guest on the "Why Not Today?" podccast (check out episode #23). Laura is traveling from New York to share her story with us!


"My Father's List" - How Living My Dad's Dreams Set Me Free by Laura Carney


On the cusp of middle age, a newlywed journalist discovered and finished the bucket list of her late free-spirited father.


Fifty-four adventures in six years. That's what thirty-eight-year-old journalist Laura Carney embarked on when she discovered her late father Mick's bucket list.

Killed in a car crash when Laura was twenty-five, Mick seemed lost forever. My Father's List is the story of how one woman—with the help of family, friends, and even strangers—found the courage to go after her own dreams after realizing those of a beloved yet mysterious man. This is a story about secrets—and the freedom we feel when we learn to trust again: in life, in love, and in a father's lessons on how to fully live.


Fresh off of her nine-month book launch, Laura will talk about how she finished her father's bucket list and the lessons learned while doing so. This will be a talk on overcoming self-doubt to find healing and joy and purpose in life. It's not to be missed!

I am excited to kick off a monthly luncheon on the 4th Thursday of every month!


I have found that in the last few years people are missing connections and community! I want to create a way to build new friendships, collaborate with each other and build a community of like minded people!


The "Why Not Today?" Podcast was started 2 years ago to share stories of courage from my guests. It has evolved with guests sharing stories along with tools to support courage, connections and community!


Each month we will have a guest speaker (often guests from the podcast) sharing stories, insight and tools to help us navigate life. 


I will also have a monthly sponsor who will share a little about their business and also be able to share any promotional materials.
