I’m filled with gratitude right now, for the wonderful book party for Happier at Home thrown by some of my most fabulous blogger friends, the women of Go Mighty–Sarah Bryden-Brown, Maggie Mason, and Laura Mayes–and Isabel Kallman.
It was a perfect evening: the setting, the food, and most of all the people. There were all sorts of wonderful little details, such as the birdhouse (see the wonderful photo by Sheri Silver), the blackboard name-tags (people don’t like name-tags, but they also really love name-tags), the Polaroid photos (what’s more fun than instant photos?), gourmet popsicles, and so many terrific friends. Anthropologie and Bliss even provided some gifts for goody bags, and Imported Wines, some Diebolt-Vallois “Cuvee Prestige” NV Brut Blanc de Blancs. Laura even brought jars of homemade pickles! (I was flabbergasted that she could make homemade pickles. I can’t believe I know someone who can do such advanced cooking.)
If you’d like to see or read more about it, check out Laura Mayes’s Blog Con Queso, Sarah Bryden-Brown’s Blogstar, Amber Doty’s The Daily Doty, Jess Lahey’s Coming of Age in the Middle, or Maggie Mason’s Mighty Girl–Maggie is also doing a give-away.
A wonderful night.
