The Holidays Are The Time For Celebrating Success

Throughout the year, it has become clear that my family extends far beyond blood. My family now includes an amazing list of close girlfriends who have also been crucial to my success. I have struggled the last 3 years with immediate family growing apart and others living far away. I decided to stick to the positive this year and create new traditions by celebrating success. One of my favourite traditions has been celebrating success, life and love with friends and family with a heaping plate of Prime Rib with a Twice Baked Potato from The Keg Steakhouse + Bar.

Celebrating Success

Growing up dinner at The Keg Steakhouse was a sign of success! It wasn’t an everyday meal, it was a special occasion to mark on the calendar! As the years went on, dinner at the keg became my birthday tradition. It meant that I had successfully lived another year! I lived through the ups and the downs, made it through the success and through the struggle. I took on another year and made it mine!

Celebrating Success

As I mentioned, I’m armed with a very strong army of motivating, powerful, loving women. They have picked me up dusted me off, reminding me why I hustle every day! Together we’ve celebrated many successes over this last year and shed more than a few tears together. Every one of us has our own story but together we are all things successful and amazing! We are family!

Celebrating Success

Did you know I actually found out I was pregnant with our second daughter Zoe on my 30th birthday? We were on our way to dinner with my colleagues at The Keg. I had been feeling awful with a sneaking suspicion that I was pregnant. I had taken a pregnancy test and as we walked out the door, I broke the news to my husband. The staff at the Keg were amazing and they kept my secret.  They helped me participate in the celebration in a way that my colleagues would never know that I was pregnant!

Looking For Small Ways To Celebrate Success During The Holidays! Make Dinner At The Keg Steakhouse + Bar Is One of Them!

That dining experience cemented my love for The Keg! Extending far beyond delicious food, welcoming decor and knowledgeable staff, they showed me that The Keg truly cared! Fast forward 3 years and as I work hard to make new traditions with husband & daughters during Christmas time, I was reminded that traditions extend to all family.  My girlfriends who have all been working, struggling, hustling and succeeding are my family too.

Through the hard times, wherever we are or whatever we’re doing, we know that one of us or all of us are just a phone call away. My girls are bloggers, they’re makers and a candlestick maker but honestly, they’re a hardworking bunch and they are my home away from home! I’ve watched these ladies grow from their first market to first bucket list blog campaigns and nailing down large clients.

We spent the evening reflecting on success! What it means to each of us and how we’ve motivated ourselves and each other throughout the year! Over appetizers, we spoke of what both short term and long term success meant to each of us.  For some, long-term success meant dreams of a trip to Rome, or a Range Rover paid for outright on an open highway with all windows down. We all have different dreams and I love that through our differences, we could all agree that moments of celebration always brought us back to the same place, The Keg!

With full hearts and bellies, we spent the evening celebrating success by congratulating each other on another year! It is truly amazing when women can come together to lift each other up and encourage rather than compete. I heard their dreams and the words that carry them through each day and my heart burst with joy that in this moment beyond anything material, I am most successful because I have friends and family that truly wish for nothing more than my happiness in whatever form that is!

The Keg Steakhouse + Bar is a place to celebrate the holiday season with friends and family. You don’t have to worry about the cleanup, the prep or picky eaters. The Keg allows you to dine in comfort surrounded by the friends and family with laughter, love and show-stopping appetizers, main courses, delectable desserts and thirst-quenching beverages.  This holiday season like most, I cannot be with my immediate family but I can mail them the joy of celebration with a gift card from The Keg.

 

It can be hard to wear all the hats and do all the things, we get this!  Print off this 8×10 poster of quotes from our inspiring evening for some motivation on getting it done this 2018! The world is yours to take, so lift someone up and make new memories and traditions! Download This PDF of [download-attachment id=”8499″ title=”Celebrating Success quotes”] HERE!

There truly is no better way to tell me you care than with a plate of prime rib with a twice baked potato and a hearty glass of red wine.  Year after year, plate after plate, there is no better dining during the holidays than bringing together your friends and family to celebrate with dinner at The Keg Steakhouse + Bar!
