I know I say this a lot, but my favorite part of blogging is the friendships that I’ve made. On Friday night, I finally (after talking about it and talking about it,) hosted a little crafting soiree at my apartment. What I thought would be a few of us – geeking out over our glue guns, turned into quite the party. We glittered up a storm and painted our nails… but mostly just drank copious amounts of wine and caught up on life, blogging, etc. It was such a fun night… I’m already plotting the next one!
