Sharing the things in life that bring me JOY while remaining focused on my life's purpose.

Y’all. My exhausted and overwhelmed New Yorker heart has grown 3 sizes these last few days. Being surrounded by this group of authentic, kind and encouraging women has been so good for my soul. So much respect and love for these incredible ladies - I was honored to serve alongside them for this amazing session of #AHInspired! These gals are some of “my people” and I am so thankful for the time we shared this week. #ahinspired2014 photo taken by @calliepittsdavis of #nancyrayphotography via Instagram http://ift.tt/1qfc1uO

The incredibly talented @heygorgevents designed the most beautiful dinner party for the #ahinspired attendees last night.
