What a week! No matter what age you are, I'm a firm believer in celebrating your birthday for an entire week, or at least a whole weekend! Maybe a birthday week isn't that different from most weeks, except that you are inclined to pay extra attention to all of the good things that happen. Even the small things, like discovering the best $3 bamboo pen from the Indigo Market, have made this an awesome birthday. However, the last few days have been extra special for a few reasons:
A couple months ago, I teamed up with Charleston's cherry & curly-headed photographer, Rachel Red Photography who has some killer talent. The weekends should be all about fun and ease, so we created an article to inspire effortless entertaining. She captured every second of our "no stuffiness allowed " day, and you can check it out over at Style Me Pretty Living! I can't wait for you to see who we partnered up with...
I felt even more excitement from our SMPLiving feature when some sweet people helped share the love. I was delighted to be mentioned in Ibu Movement's weekly newsletter and interviewed for Charleston Blog Society. I'm very appreciative of the time involved from those two dears!
The best part of week was when I got to see the coffee label that is for my coworker's VERY OWN ROAST!! Ripple Coffee has offered to let us sell bags to fundraise for Bill, a physical therapist in Mount Pleasant, who is facing an unknown muscular condition. Paulette at Ripple is just the best, and she even let Bill create his own flavor combo for his special roast. I just can't wait to share more and continue to team up with them. Kelly at Paper Meets Pearl has graciously agreed to help me get this coffee party started very soon!
People are so generous when you pay attention; so many of my sweet friends have supported Bill's T-Shirt Fundraiser instead of getting me a present. We have raised $300 in a short time period, and it was very easy with Bonfire Funds! To top it off, my newly adopted mentor treated me to birthday lunch today! I hope I am able to return some of this love!!
