In this holiday season of giving, I remember how much love, inspiration, and laughs our friends, and especially our girlfriends, give us everyday. This fall, I hosted a dinner called “Brains & Beauts of Boston” to celebrate some of the incredible ladies that I have met in my short time in Boston. I wanted them to be in one room together, to meet each other and share their stories.
A few days before the guests arrived, they each filled in the blanks from the video invitation above. At the meal, they found little books on the table with all of their answers and beautiful sketches of their faces by the incredibly talented Jen Ashman. We switched seats half way through the meal so everyone would get to meet each other talk about their super powers. I am so thankful to have them in my life, and now, they are out in the world bumping into each other and making new friends—making this crazy world smaller, one dinner at a time. Much love to all, see you back here in the New Year!
