My name is Lola, and a few weeks ago, I had an idea. I thought that it would be interesting to search out women living all around the world and ask them to collaborate on a blog where we share our lives. I have always wanted to travel and see the world. I would throw on a backpack and travel to every country on this planet if my life and means would permit it, but alas, they do not. So this is the next best thing.

We will get to see Germany, Norway, the Bahamas, Japan, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Italy, Hong Kong, Dubai, South Africa, Georgia, Canada, Finland, Utah, and Indonesia through the eyes of the beautiful, smart, talented, funny women who live there. Every day there will be a new post. Some days, we are all posting to a theme (such as: "This morning's breakfast" or "today's shoes") other days will simply be labeled "Today" and each woman will share a little slice of their day - whatever that may be!

We feel that each culture, and each country, and each and every woman on the planet has positive, lovely, and wonderful things to share with those who will listen, and this blog is meant to serve as a forum for these formidably good things!

We are celebrating the everyday beauty of life and womanhood, and suspect that we will find that life is beautiful everywhere, and joy can be found in even the smallest things, such as a morning walk, a great cup of cocoa, the laugh (or mischief) of a child, a letter from someone we love, and of course, the joy of making a new, lifelong friend.

We sincerely hope that you will take this journey with us! It's not aimed at ANYTHING other than connecting, enjoying, and escaping to new and different places. Feel free to comment, ASK QUESTIONS, and start conversations! And please share a link to Communal Global on your blog (if you feel so inclined) and tell other women about it so that they can join in and share with us!
