We had fun so Nanny Nanny Boo Boo, and other stuff


Thanks to all the lovely ladies and guys who came out to our Southern Creative's Social Society meeting. The Livingston is a really beautiful spot, I remember when it was just a strange ballroom that was never used. How do you feel about making it monthly? What do you want the focus to be on? Do we learn each time, or do we just gossip and chat and laugh and fist bump?

The newest issue of Anthology mag has a little blurb about my favorite movie for visual inspiration. I have several, but one of my all time favorite movies is Sense and Sensibility with Emma Thompson. As you all know. 



There they are: Sensibility is Kate, and Sense is Emma. I told O recently that watching or reading a Jane Austen tale is like catching up with an old friend. I just love how she writes people. I sometimes meet people in real life and wonder what Jane would have said about them, is that totally nerdy? Don't answer that. If you are like me, and now you want to snuggle up with your puppies and a tea and watch it, go ahead.



In otherother news: I started my new commitment of doing one hour of adoption research a day and by the end of the hour I googled: "Life without children...." Sigh. It sucks. I did learn that you can adopt an embryo though. So if you can't conceive but you can still carry a child to term, crazy y'all! And awesome.

  1. Monthly, yes! Perhaps alternating social and learning would be fun, but I'm all for whatever happens.

  2. That was so much fun and it was so nice to meet new lovely creative people, I loved that it seemed most people were meeting for the first time, and then there are the "its a small world" connections that inevitably follow, which is just so cool!

    Monthly or even bi-monthly would be great, and the Livingston was a fantastic place; cozy and comfy, and classy :) The informal conversations are always good. Good topics spontaneously arise. It could be interesting to throw out a question each time before hand that could loosely be like a "topic of conversation" but could be kept really informal. Maybe? Social is always good too, we are always learning through the informal convos.

    Thank you, Michelle, for getting us together!

  4. Yes, thank you for reminding me that I'm not cool enough to call Atlanta home.
    For real though, it looked like a genuinely fantastic time.

    And oh, Sense and Sensibility! My go-to movie for inspiration is actually Pride and Prejudice - that landscape! One of my favorite paintings I titled "you have bewitched me heart and soul"
