A sweet celebration for a new beginning.

I was a little nervous and a lot hesitant to host a “launch party” for my new website and business direction.  I like to stay under the radar for the most part, and it’s just not in my character to toot my own horn.  Don’t get me wrong … I love a celebration as much as the next person and will go to great lengths to honor someone else’s achievements and milestones.  I’m just not crazy for celebrations where I’m the guest of honor.  It feels … awkward.

So it took a little bit of coaxing but I finally decided that a sweet and (very) small celebration would be just right. It was also in keeping with my new business model — small and intimate, where everyone has the opportunity to connect with one another.

I invited a few people to join me on the porch of the Black Point Inn in Scarborough.  The weather couldn’t  have been better with sunny, blue skies and a warm, gentle breeze.

A little swag was in order, because for those who know me, know that I like people to leave a celebration with a parting gift.  In the swag bag was a set of photo greeting cards, a candle with my new logo, and a special cookie made by the Two Fat Cats bakery here in Portland.  Yum … so good!

I’m overwhelmed with all the good wishes coming my way.  It’s more than fantastic having so many people in my corner.

So thanks to those who came out to my perfect and sweet little launch celebration.  The evening could not have been any nicer for me!
