What we’re about
Please click here for our mailing list! Welcome. I'm so glad you found us... Welcome to SMWSLT. Our group is alive and well and growing by leaps and bounds. We host both online and live events, mostly but not exclusively in the Orange County area.
I have been so touched by the intimacy and connections that are being created ongoingly through our group interactions. Lots of close friendships and circles have been made and yes, even some romance! I try to mix it up and keep it interesting and I’m always open to new ideas and feedback. My commitment to every member is that there are no "outsiders" and all folks that identify as a woman loving women are welcome. I believe that the experience of feeling welcome and included is palpable in our group events whether live or on Zoom.
As of 2022, I am now leading groups to Greece once or twice a year. Please check out my travel website at lesbiangetaways.com for upcoming trip info. We still have a few spots open for the end of May, 2023. You can watch a video presentation on the home page if you like.
For FB users, please follow us (facebook.com/somanywomensolittletime/). If you would like to be part of our secret FB or our So Cal Lesbian Pickleballers group, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once in, you can invite your friends directly from there.
I would love it if you joined the smwslt mailing list. This separates out our special announcements from all the other meetup emails which can be overwhelming at times. I ask that you please set your notifications at minimum to receive organizer messages and new event announcements. This has to be done while actually on our group site. You can find the settings by clicking on your round profile photo on the top right corner and select email and notifications.
I am so looking forward to meeting you whether it be online or in person when that time comes.
Your organizer, Jody

- Online Social: Let's Get To Know One Another a Little BetterLink visible for attendees
************Free Raffle at 8:30pm! Must be present to win!************
Slip into something comfortable, enjoy your dinner, grab your favorite drink and join us for an evening of getting to know one another. When you enter the zoom room please have your video on. Feel free to rename to your first name (or nickname) and the city that you are zooming in from.
I will be hosting a get-to-know-you-game where each member asks a question and answers a question. You can choose to answer a simple question such as "What is your favorite color and why?" or to answer a deep dive question such as "Tell us about your first kiss". I will start off first by answering a question and demonstrating how the get-to-know-you game goes.
This is a fun way to know a little bit more about your fellow members and hopefully you will deepen current friendships or create new ones. This online event will be cross-posted so there will be more participants than the headcount posted here. RSVP yes to receive the zoom link. Your video must be on to participate!
- Lets read...The Brutal TruthLink visible for attendees
Hello book lovers! Let’s read and discuss – The Brutal Truth, by Lee Winter. Australian crime reporter Maddie Grey is out of her depth in New York, miserable, and secretly drawn to her powerful, twice-married, media mogul boss, Elena Bartell, who eats failing newspapers for breakfast. As work takes them to Australia, Maddie is goaded into a brief, seemingly harmless bet with her enigmatic boss—where they have to tell the complete truth to each other. It backfires catastrophically. A lesbian romance about the lies we tell ourselves.
· 360 pages. (11 hours and 42 minutes on audio.) Plan accordingly.
Ready for some Winter.… - Jo Jo 😉
NOTES FOR MEETING
Please be prompt, at 7 pm Pacific, and plan to stay until we close out as a group or at 8:30 pm Pacific. We open with a short icebreaker within a few minutes of the start time, which is great for getting to know one another better. Arriving late or leaving early “individually” can distract the group discussion, so arriving on time and staying until 8:30 pm Pacific, is appreciated. We do occasionally stay later but if you need to bow out then, no worries. And…we could finish early. (Early has not happened, but I am just saying it could. Lol.)
* It is a social event so please have your video ON. It is also for transparency and peace of mind for all our members in this Zoom world.
WHERE: Zoom - Attendees will receive a private link and password on the day of the event. I will post a comment when I have sent it. Please do not share or post the link or your password.
Make sure your Meet Up notification setting for email is on for this group. (If you saw this book discussion announced via email, your setting is on. ;))
WHAT TO BRING
Bring your sweet self, any notes that you may want to share, and your favorite beverage. :)
- YES RSVPs, if you can't make it, please take a moment to change your RSVP to NOT GOING asap. It is just a courteous thing to do. :)
** If you are new to zoom, watch this video. Make sure to watch the video to the end. (A little over 5 minutes.) A senior does a great job of showing the various items you will want to know about. It is easy! Really. https://youtu.be/kh50kVaIdAY
- Orange County Conscious Lesbian Couples LunchIrvine Spectrum Center, Irvine, CA
Are you in a committed romantic relationship with a woman and are looking for like-minded, conscious couples to connect with in Orange County?
If you said yes, you are not alone. My partner Maria & I (Mary), are too! We thought we would start with a simple lunch at Irvine Spectrum.
During our first few meetups, we'd like to discuss what couples would like to participate in on a regular basis, so we can plan future events.
When we say we are looking for like-minded, conscious couples, we mean couples who are into:
- Health & Wellness
- Being emotionally intelligent (i.e. the ability to perceive, interpret, demonstrate, regulate, evaluate, and use emotions to communicate with and relate to others effectively and constructively.)
- Enjoy discussing personal growth topics
- Enjoy outdoor activities including walks, hikes, e-biking, and ping-pong
- Enjoy getting together for lunches, dinners, potlucks, game nights, special events, travel, etc.
- Light drinkers, non-drinkers/non-drug users or women in recovery
- We are liberal and want to connect with women who also lean in this direction
We can't wait to meet you!
Mary and Maria
