'tis the season for:

Thursday, December 19

Holiday parties! I've been lucky enough to attend several parties this year to celebrate the season. Christmas has got to be the most effortlessly festive time of the year. Ugly sweater or not, you need only show up to a party to be swaddled (though not laying in a manger) in friends, treats, and good cheer.

Last week was my first company holiday party at my "new" job (which is starting to feel just normal, but no less fun)! I was so pleased to help with some decor and planning. I wanted to share some pictures, mostly because they are gorg and I think they will reflect well on my blog. But also, it was a night to remember. So so fun hanging with my new friends & old friends (Huntee, [obvi] my date, and Shel came as a +1) in this beaaautiful space (locals: Pinewood Social).

and because iPhone pictures sometimes capture moments better...(clockwise): my cute date bought himself a new blazer [not pictured], my gals, my favorite picture ever, my Shelly bean

Ready for next year, already.

Please note: I didn't take any of these pictures! We had an amazingly talented photographer, Diana Lee Zadlo, who took them for us! Check out more of her work on her tumblr!

You look so super classy here in these professional pictures! Love them! Looks like a really wonderful event. How cool to make bowling a little more "chic" since usually its (as I know it) always a little trashy ;)
