Success

The party last night was a huge hit. Runaway success. People stayed so long that our manager friends had to cut the lights out to get them to go home. And then we had a mini-after party in the back room with the MG+BW staff that was so funny, I unfortunately can't even share it all with you. To say it simply, my cup runneth over. I'm so grateful to Ben Collins, owner of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Atlanta (in addition to MG+BW Dallas & MG+BW Nashville) who enthusiastically partnered with us and his amazing team (Jonathan, Hayley, Claudia, Abby, & Jennifer) who all worked so tirelessly to help make this event a success. The energy was really electric--everyone who came was genuinely impressed with our mission at Room Service Atlanta and blown away by the work we accomplished at the Nicholas House. I'm exhausted & still swamped with work (Can you believe I'm the coordinator for a wedding that's taking place this Friday/Saturday??!), but I wanted to share some pics while this is still fresh on my mind. If you're here in Atlanta and missed the party, you might get sad looking at these. The was one of the most supportive, encouraging party crowds I've seen! And if you've never had a cake pop from Candy Cake Company, I feel bad for you.

     Heaven on a stick
