last saturday i had the opportunity to attend the so cal new year's blogger's bee, hosted by the ever-fabulous dionne. [i met dionne in person just before the very first so cal blogger meet-up, almost two years ago! my how time flies.]
the decor was perfect:
i got to meet a handful of other delightful bloggers, including a few who i've long admired like danni and lindsey. we enjoyed the beautiful patio area of aroma coffee & tea, chatted and ate and enjoyed the great decor and goodie bags provided by dionne and her army of etsy friends. i brought jack, who even had another baby-friend there to play with [maggi brought her adorable natalie], but who also turned out to be my early ticket out of there when he made it very clear he was ready for a nap. so we left a bit early and i was sad i couldn't stay longer to chat with everyone!

i'll have a few more posts with some fabulous paper-related etsy finds from the blogger's bee, so stay tuned! thanks again to dionne who is my favorite party planner. this was a perfect way to ring in the new year.
