After an absolutely AMAZING mini vacation in Key West, I returned home after being in the car for nearly 14 hours, took a shower & grabbed a few hours sleep. Later, as I made my way through the week’s accumulated mail, I found an invite to a local networking event that was scheduled for that afternoon. I am trying to be more active in the community events and meet other small business owners, so I really wanted to go. The event was being sponsored by three local businesses and even though I only had hours to RSVP, I knew it would be a great opportunity. Thanks to Mr Fred Howard of (the Payroll Center, Inc.) PCI, also to NuBarter and finally the Grapevine Bistro & Wine Bar for truly putting on a “spectacular” event.
While there I met another local photographer, who was wonderful. Her name was Jamie Weaver and she had a PHOTO BOOTH that was tons of FUN and enjoyed by everyone who attended. I even jumped in and before you even see the photos below, PLEASE excuse my scariness. I was running on basically no sleep and my hair had not been washed in 8+ days. Hilarious . . . I look like I am in pain in the first photo. I am not sure what kind of funny looks I was going for, but in my defense I was very tired. LOL. She even had props. Hummmm . . . a boa and a clown nose . . . what was I thinking?!?!?
A highlight for me was winning this BEAUTIFUL candy bouquet. I never win anything and I almost didn’t get this because I wasn’t paying close attention to the #’s being called. However, after they repeated the numbers for the third time, I realized I had the winning ticket! YEA for me! This beautiful candy bouquet was created by Ed & Dawn Tolliver of the CANDY BOUQUET right here in Savannah, Ga. Definitely check out their website @ The Candy Bouquet to see some “delicious” looking arrangements from a variety of candy.

I am so happy to have met some wonderful people and I look forward to networking again soon. Until then I will enjoy some candy!
