Thank you to everyone who came and made our very first event so special. It truly was one of the best nights of my life and I will never forget it. The support, congratulations, and well wishes that were poured out upon us mean so much. It's memories like the ones we'll have of last night that will get us through the down days--and we all have them! Last night was just the opposite. For me and my mom and dad, it was a window of glowing grace.

We could not have pulled last night off without the help of four amazing women: Janice (my boyfriend Matt's mom), Vicki (Matt's aunt, who in fact introduced us to one another way back in my Barn days), Michelle (Matt's gorgeous cousin, who is soon to be married!), and Kelly (jewelry designer from These Flowers, This Moon, and more importantly, my dear friend). And I do mean we could not have done it without them. Last night was the first time I ever thought we needed two cash wrap areas.
I didn't even know my store could hold that many people.
Congratulations to the winner of our $100 Gift Certificate.
Bottles of Perrier, a Paris Bistro chalkboard, and a blue and white fleur de lis tablecloth set the tone for an evening a Paris au printemps.
