Good things often start in the kitchen. That's where my high-spirited Texas girlfriends and I cooked up the idea for our new book: Red Thong Strong: Girlfriends' Little Secrets to Smoothing Life's Panty Lines. It debuts on Amazon and other channels today and we're celebrating with launch parties and book signings in many Texas locations. Read on for the scoop on all the fun and come see us if you're in town.
Part self-help, part memoir, Red Thong Strong shares laughs and lessons from my girlfriend group's more than 30-year friendship. The eight of us met in a young-marrieds' Sunday School class in Bedford, Texas that Bob and I actually founded. Brought together by faith, fellowship and a thing for fashion, the girls and I were soon making play dates for our children and planning shopping trips, holiday gatherings, even family vacations with each other.
Along the way, we forged an extraordinary bond and developed a Red Thong Strong attitude that has helped us support each other through everything from shoe shopping to chemotherapy. (Two in our little band of sisters are breast cancer survivors.) We also realized we have something rare and felt compelled to share it with other women.
If you're wondering "why red thong?," we get that a lot. But years ago, we started giving each other lacy red panties to take the sting out of those really big birthdays! Over time, the red thong came to symbolize the confident, brave way we wanted to live, and to remind us that sometimes small, unseen things can have a big impact on our lives.
Now, we're on a mission to motivate women to adopt a bold, assertive "thong-a-tude" as we call it. We want them to connect with other women, overcome their fears and say yes to all of life's possibilities.
Red Thong Strong is a laugh-out-loud girlfriends' guide that shows women how to make and nurture friendships, deal with unexpected detours, and celebrate life's ages and stages. Our work-of-the-heart, or really eight hearts, covers 100 hot-button women's issues across 206 pages with practical, this-is-how-we-do-it advice.
