Given that most of us had never met one another in person I thought it would be helpful to create name tags from vintage holiday images in a prize ribbon style.
It was such fun getting to know this wonderful group.
Everyone brought so many delicious dishes and wonderful offerings for the luncheon/cookie exchange.

Special thanks to the Fashionista who took the day off to help me prepare for this festively fun event.In closing, I would like to mention that this is my 1500th post (it kind of snuck up on me :). It seems fitting that it occurred on a post featuring new blogging friends. I could never have imagined that when I began blogging almost eight years ago that it would lead me on such an amazing journey. Over the years I have met some truly wonderful people both online and in person! I want to thank each and every one of you who have shared such fantastic love, positivity and support over the years. You all are truly a blessing to me.
