Celebrating the official launch of this website.

Celebrating new beginnings.

Celebrating creative endeavors.

Celebrating following your passions.

Celebrating women supporting women.

Celebrating local Houston businesses.

Celebrating the chance to give back.

Celebrating friends who show up to be there for you.




That evening, I was so engrossed in enjoying the moment that I took exactly zero photos on my iPhone. Gasp! I know, crazy, right? So, I was totally thrilled when the sweet and talented Taylor Robbins sent me the photos she captured. Nothing makes me happier than seeing so many people I love from all walks of life gathered in one place!

The party was graciously hosted by Houston-based fashion designer David Peck. Not only did he welcome us into his space, but he also donated a portion of the night’s shopping proceeds to a cause that is special to me, Recipe for Success.

I am so grateful to all who showed up to celebrate with me! Time is our most valuable resource. Please know that I do not take for granted for one second that you chose to spend your time with me. You could have been a million places that evening, and you chose to be there for me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing to spend your evening with me.

Note I am also so appreciative of those who were celebrating with me in spirit from afar. Thank you!

Friends + fashion + food + fun + philanthropy? Sign me up. The perfect way to officially usher in this new venture. Cheers to celebrating life!
