It’s hard to believe it has now been OVER a year since I launched My Life Well Loved. I have been blogging for 5 years now and launched this latest blog on my own 11/11 (my birthday!) in 2013. In the months leading up to the blog anniversary, I thought I might want to do something fun and intimate for some of the supporters of the blog. As I started brainstorming with Meredith of Bustle Gowns, the party continued to evolve and grow into a celebration of love and an outpouring of my gratefulness to all those around me who have made MLWL a possibility. I wish that I could have invited every single blog reader to the party but unfortunately, we all couldn’t QUITE fit into Bustle. 😉
Here’s the deets since y’all couldn’t all join. I wanted you to at least feel like each of you were a part. My sweet friend and photographer Magen Davis took all these beautiful images so that I’ll always remember the details of this beautiful evening.
Where: Bustle Gowns in Homewood
Chalkboard Art: Artistry by Augusta
Catering: Happy Catering Company was a HUGE hit! Apparently they book weddings off their Swiss Dip alone and I believe it!
Beer: Avondale Brewery (my local favorite!)
Cupcakes: Gigi’s Cupcakes
VIP Activity Sponsors:
Shoefly: provided flashtats and helped us apply them, so fun! They also provided my FABULOUS Sam Edelman over the knee boots that I adore.
Rawwbeauty: provided a lip bar for the party which was a big hit! My mom even asked for one of the lip colors for her birthday.
Sprout & Pour: had some of their cold-pressed juices for everyone to sample.
Hair & Makeup: Kerri Bunn
Meredith, owner of Bustle, and friend.

I hope this gave you a fun little sneak peek into our night. It was a joy to celebrate with the 60 or so fabulous friends, family members, bloggers, and local businesses who came! THANK YOU BIRMINGHAM and nationwide readers and sponsors who make this blog possible. I LOVE each of you and can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store.
