The Food, Fun, and Fashion gathering was a sold-out event with women from five different states. Spending the day with these engaging women who share a passion for looking our best as we move with grace through our daily lives was indeed a joy for me.
The event was not overplanned or precisely choreographed. Plenty of time remained for open discussions to lead where they may. I kept the capacity small and intimate to talk to each other, and everyone could feel equally included. It was very much like having a perfect afternoon with sisters or best friends. When we hugged each other at the end of the day, I felt sad to say goodbye and honestly did not want the day to end.
I am very grateful to my very considerate friends at ShopMyFairLady.com, who sent me the IC Collection pants set in a new lighter bright blue for Spring to wear on this special day. They know how much I enjoy this line, so they wanted me to have something new and yet effortless to wear on this day. I have added several new pieces to my spring/summer wardrobe. (A particular blog post and video about the warm weather additions are both in the works!)
Mr. Mickey is often my photographer, but he was out of town this weekend, so I want to thank his daughter, Regina (below). She came to the rescue and helped me so much. She also took these photos with our little camera, which was sadly not up to the task. Jared Bentley is a professional videographer and photographer, who recorded and photographed the first part of the event, but I don’t have the results of his work yet. I will share more photos and offer you a private video at a later time. VIP Seen magazine also sent a photographer to document the event.
A big thank you for the grand door prize, which Uno Alla Volta donated. I also want to thank The Carnegie Hotel’s staff for preparing the space so well for this event. Everything was top-notch, and our every request was promptly honored.
