I committed to working the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Dinner this year, first one since 2019. On August 19, 2022, I was invited to a Kick Off cocktail party.
I went with this cute little off-shoulder high-low dress I recently picked up at my amazing afternoon at Common Threads.
That Friday began what was three days on little sleep, getting up early, working, getting dressed, getting home late, getting up early, running, getting dressed, working an event, getting home late, getting up early and getting dressed, working another event, rinse and repeat…
That day I had to work so after work, I rushed across town, got my girl on and then drove almost back across town for the kickoff party. I sort of knew a few folks, but no one really I would be comfortable initiating a conversation with. So as I stood at a stand-up table alone, having a drink and some appetizers, a lovely woman asked if I would join her and her husband.
Over the course of about an hour, I made another new friend! Kim was wonderful. She and her husband live relatively close to me. Kim has a blog and we discussed our blogs and ways to make them better. It was a delightful evening! I hit a local favorite restaurant for bit of dinner, then headed home.
Here is Kim and I.
The following day, up for a 6:30 AM 14 mile run with a friend, then home for a number of things to be taken care of, dressed again and out the door for the dinner, August 20, 2022.
I served as a main greeter for all the patrons (where have we heard that before?) and enjoyed every second of it.
I wore this lovely Michael Kors dress, and again, felt just right for the event. As I was greeting everyone, something awesome happened, but I am going to save this one for a separate post.
Throughout the event, I saw many friends and acquaintances. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, very happy that I decided to give my time. Below you see me in live action! I had no idea I was being photographed at the time.
One of the happiest things that has happened in my Kandi life occurred this evening, coming soon to a blog near you!
Just an FYI to my readers: We have so much wonderful content coming out of my ears! I am scheduling things now well into October. This post is a double outing, which I would have run on two separate days in the past. What really pleases me are the essays I am getting and it has gotten my creative juices flowing a bit as well. If you do nothing else for me, please do me this one favor. Tell a friend about Kandi’s Land! We may not be a Top 100 site, but I certainly think we’re the best!!
