Artful Living

dreamy blogger luncheon

blogtable copyThis week, I was invited to a dreamy luncheon with a group of blog friends and nearby neighbors. The table setting was so pretty and the three-course luncheon required stamina as I usually have a small something on the run or while I am working. It was such a treat to meet up with such fine ladies after reading their blogs for years. I was already ahead of the game, having met four out of eight at a round table of nine. bloggiftsThe lovely party favors were created by Jeanne of I-Dream-of and it gives me such delight to know that she is pursuing her passion and artistry after leaving an established career. That takes courage and imagination. I remember when Jeanne and I met in New York City for a lovely lunch and she was trying to decide how to get up the courage to follow her dreams. Well, she did it and I truly feel that the support of fellow bloggers can encourage and propel one to try new things and take a leap of faith to pursue one’s own authentic self. Bloggers all agree that although blogging has slowed down due to other draws such as Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram but blogging gives each of us a great way to communicate our areas of interest, our expertise, our failures as well as share our true passions. Thank-you Sandy and Tina for arranging such a lovely luncheon and what a treat it was to meet and share an afternoon.  A thank-you to Sue at Zhush for the lovely coasters.  At first glance, I thought the ladies from Diane James Home had created the personalized flower arrangements.  I look forward to planning an Autumn luncheon on the Hudson.
