My head is still buzzing from mingling on tuesday evening…

the mingle scene.

Shelby and I, equipped with door prizes for the guests.

Color. I am so glad that everyone brought their shining beauty, and joined in the fun.

We had 2 official photographers working mingle this time, Justin Hackworth and Ashley Thalman. Go take a look at the photos here and here.  They did an outstanding job. Plus, they’re really cool people and fun to hang out with! (The images on this post were shot by them.)

I met so many wonderful people at mingle@soel!


mingle@soel : tonight!

June 26, 2012

Hello, Friends! As I mentioned, I’m in Utah getting ready for mingle@soel! I am really digging the dry utah heat! The weather is straight out of my dreams and the wasatch mountains look as beautiful as ever! It’s a short trip — I’ll be back in Boston on Friday, but it’s always delightful to be in the place that truly feels like home.

Tonight, is the night! Are you coming to mingle? Remember: wear color! I packed a few options, and am still trying to decide what to wear! : ) This is your chance to bring some friends and mingle with some really great people!


it’s time to mingle!

June 19, 2012

hello there! i am so excited to share some news with you… this past month has been truly exhausting, but lucky for all of us – there is a party on the horizon!

remember this event in February? Well… things have changed just a little {i scooted your cheese over just a tiny bit} and now we are mingle! the name changed, but our vision remains the same. mingle has replaced “utah bloggers.” so, go grab your iPhone-calender-planner-whatever you schedule your life with, and pencil in this info:

look at the sponsors, we are going to have the best party ever!


friends! how was your weekend? we returned home late last night and have jumped right back into our regular routine here in boston. our kiddos had a great winter vacation in utah – we packed every minute with play dates, our favorite food, and activities. they were sad to leave so i’ve got to keep reminding them in the next few days about what is great about living in boston! homesickness does not look good on little ones.

i’ve been so excited to share with you the highlights, photos, and videos of last weeks {utah} blogger meet ‘n greet. for me, the best part was seeing this event i’d worked on with shelby come together so beautifully.


i hit the ground running in utah! i am running my kiddos around to play dates + visiting their old schools to crash lunches, recesses,  and surprise their friends!  and, i’m scurrying to put together the best-first-ever-utah-blogger-meet-n-greet!  it’s tonight!  if you haven’t already, check out the new site + grab a button on my sidebar to share the news on your blog!

your wednesday evening plans should include this:

remember: i am giving door prizes to the first 50 guests at 6:30pm! xoxo


brown kraft paper crafts

February 21, 2012

i finished my last craft projects for the {utah} blogger meet ‘n greet yesterday afternoon and right now our family is en route to utah! in fact, i am posting this from 30,000 feet. wi-fi on airplanes is genius, people. kudos (and kisses!) to whoever figured that out.

all of these projects below are easy do-it-yourself goodies. take a look –

bless my oldest two daughters, they were a huge help this past week in making it possible for me to manage life + conquer my craft-to-do’s! we made {mostly myna’s work} a couple dozen of my yarn-wrapped kraft bags + added these new martha stewart chalkboard labels.
