A look back at 2009

December 31, 2009

2009 was hard for many people (so many of my close friends lost their jobs), and I felt fortunate to be able to build my business this year and do what I love. Some of my favorite highlights of the year would have to be:

blist

Attending the inaugural meeting of the B-List in New York (and eating Katz’s pastrami for the first time… drool).

Getting Featured on Snippet & Ink for Carissa & Dwight’s wedding.

Attending the Martha Stewart 15th Anniversary Party, meeting Abby of Style Me Pretty, the crew from Sunday Suppers, hanging with Ms. Perfect Bound and eating Morimoto’s sushi (sooo good).

And of course, the most recent big event, moving into a house (goodbye apartments!) and finally getting a dog. I’m looking forward to an even more successful 2010! Happy New Year’s Eve!
