it's a long one so you'll probably want to go to the bathroom first before you look at this post

i hope everyone is well.
i was the one that was spazzing a mere few days ago.
but i am no longer a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown
(for now anyway)
because the opening is behind me now.
and it was fun.
so fun.
and i can't thank everyone enough for their amazing support and outpouring of love shown to me.
so here's some of the night to share with you.....

first and foremost, i must tell you that my friend sara took the majority of these pictures.
she took mr. camera right off my hands and i now have these ultra-fabulous pictures and without her, i probably would not have even remembered to take one single shot.
so thank you sara. you rock for so many reasons and i love you.

i want to tell you that a part of all the proceeds go directly to habitat for humanity. julia's coffee house is connected to a giant re-store that is owned and operated by habitat for humanity volunteers. the coffee is fair trade coffee and it houses a great bookstore as well as terrific coffee. the atmosphere is casual and relaxed which made it a perfect place to have an art show.

i want to thank my dear friend gillian for her invaluable support and for being such a true and strong rudder when i was in need of direction. and your apple green purse is to die for. i love you.

i thank all my family and friends whom i love so much, for all their encouragement and support.

i thank julia's coffee house for allowing me to become a small part of their wonderful community.

and i thank mr. ntm for being my biggest cheerleader and for believing in me. without you, this never would have even been a possiblity for me.
i love you.

there it is.
i can now say i'm glad i took the risk.
who knows.
i may even be stupid enough to try it again.
