dinner pARTy goodness…

i went to a dinner party last night in san fran, hosted by the adorable jenifer. i was totally mesmerized when i walked into her live+work space/loft that she shares with her man. it was warm with color, creativity, openness and a sweet little black dog. the evening was a gathering of women who live the life of artmaking, and who share bits and pieces of that journey on their blogs. we also had a lovely niece, a husband, and a friend from out of town join us for the fun. total joy. met some new friends and was inspired by the conversation. they’re all accomplished, honest, sincere creative spirits and i was honored to be a part of the gathering. jenifer even gifted us with cute party favors, and even sweet hand-made necklaces (check out her etsy shop..full on goodness).

it’s on evenings like these that i am reminded how wonderful it feels to be in the company of other women who understand the importance of a collective creative energy. it’s the best feeling, this expanding of community that, over time, feels deep and wide. and it also reminds me how this little ol’ blog of mine has given me the opportunity to connect with some pretty amazing souls – how it starts online, then spills over into real and true life and friendship. pretty cool.

so yes, i made a couple new san fran friends last night. happiness. more photos here and here.

in other news, john has a new + improved schedule, allowing us more time together than we’ve had in many, many months. we’ve been sharing meals together, movies together, and even just lazy days in our home together. we’re catching up, returning to our groove, and i’m loving every second of it. it’s hard to believe all of this will be over this fall -this crazy, ever changing life that is living in california.

more soon (i know i’ve been somewhat of a lazy blogger lately)..

Sending much love,

    Sounds like a great dinner party with lots of laughs and inspiration. I am glad you get to see John more often. just think, Portland is almost around the corner. A perfect fall, Italy and then Portland. Hope your week goes well.
