Galentines @Hock Farm
The local bloggers gals decided to get together for Galentine’s day. I’ve been honestly spending a ton of time with men lately. I’ve got 2 male roommates and my design team at work is made up of 3 male co-workers. So needless to say, I needed some female bonding in my life!
It was a joyful night filled with laughter. I enjoyed sharing what’s been on our hearts and minds. The waiters were even sprinkling rose petals on the table for us! haaaa.
I came home feeling fulfilled, as an introvert that is a huge difference vs feeling drained after a big event.
I couldn’t help but noticing how inspiring, uplifting and hilarious everyone there was. I know bloggers get a bad rep for being ‘self obsessed’ but I felt anything but. IMO, bloggers are people in search of connections, passions, heart and community. Try to tell me how that is wrong?! Anyway, I love these ladies, let’s get onto talking about the drinks, decor, desserts.

Check out this lighting trick I learned in the flash photography class last year! Try bouncing a light off a white dinner plate, it helps create a soft fill light on the face! Woop!

Oh btw, please notice how cute and fancy all the ladies look! I’m over here in my mom jeans and boots. Ha forgive me, I just came from work!
I thought it would be fun to add in links to everyone’s blogs/social from left to right.
I kind of love this Ellen Degeneres selfie shot! ha
