Oops! I wrote the following last Friday and didn't realize I didn't upload it! So where it says "last night", it really was last week. *smh*
My artist reception at Cranberries' Cafe was last night. I didn't really know what to expect, or how things might be set up for a reception in a restaurant. We ended up with four tables that were not exactly adjacent to each other, which felt a little awkward at first. But in the end, all that mattered was that I had some great friends and family that came out to show their support for me - four tables' worth! I feel overwhelmed with gratitude; truly can't express how much that meant to me. My friend Diane Kramer called it a "sort of radiant feeling of love and happiness" - yes, that's it. It was a fun time - despite my mom's unfortunate expression in the second photo (I am so lucky she's internet-illiterate & won't see this!)
Between my family and me, and Cranberries' Cafe owner Patty Plant, we agreed on Thursday September 24th from 6 - 8 pm for an artist reception. A flyer has been created and a facebook event page has been posted. Looking forward to it!
