Any event that involves mixing and mingling, business card exchange and a nice cocktail is a good one in my book. My right hand, Chelli and I ended up at Malmaison, down on the waterfront for the DC Fashion Foundation's Fashionably Business mixer. Thanks to Georgetown's barrage of constant traffic (for no reason) we were a little late... but we were still able to meet a lot of interesting people.
The location was secluded, and had a very nice set up and we may consider it as the location of our next event/ future collaboration. It's nice to have a meeting of the minds with local people that share your interests that you may otherwise never come into contact with.
...and on the other side of town my mom had a birthday dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Graces Mandarin at the National Harbor. Praying that I'm able to age with even half the grace of this woman... she looked amazing. Happy Birthday!
( SIDE NOTE: All I want for Christmas is to spend time with family, and to pay down some of my bills. Anything else would be a bonus. I provide for myself, I don't want for much. )
