party no. 1

first of all, i was flattered and a titch puzzled when i got the invite to 
alice lane's blogger social hosted by my friend kirsten.
i just felt like saying "hi i'm nobody, nice to meet you." but, i put on my self-assured face & drug jenna with me so we could spread the word about bloggers give back - which i'm told was a MASSIVE success that blew everyone's predictions out of the water.
it was so neat to hear the owner jessica's story about making her dream come true by opening alice lane & how naming the store after the street she lived on & felt at most home in made starting her own business less terrifying. 
signing a lease for "alice lane" was comfortable because it was home.
we met a few women who are making their dreams happen & it was a really inspirational night. made me think about what's next for me!
jenna, myself & kristen - who made THE most stellar dessert table ever consumed.
more on that later...
i'd also tell you about jenna's moment with the truffles, but it's a little off colored.

all in all it was a fun night, i got to hang out with old favorites, to meet people i've admired and i got to loiter in the most beautiful store i've ever seen. 
jessica really has created such a piece of art with alice lane!

sadly, i didn't get the chance to meet everyone, but here's a list of my old favorites & new friends from the party, all great blogs worth a subscription if you haven't already...

Jessica and Kristen of Alice Lane
Amanda of the Cedar City shop Recycled Consign and Design
Caroline of Armelle Jewelry

I know this is random, but I just had to comment: You look like a hip, modern Laura Palmer (from Twin Peaks). And if there's any question, I mean that as an honest compliment :)
