Lunch Meeting

I'm back! I know you all missed me and I wanted to say THANK YOU for all the well wishes.  I certainly NEVER want to deal with one of those cyst things again that is for sure, talk about pain- yuck!

Anyway before I pick a winner of the rug and re-cap Nantucket I had to post a little re-cap of my lunch yesterday.  I'll just start with the photo
The FLAWLESS Margaret Russell herself!

Elle Decor had a wonderful event at the Boston Design Center for their Seminar Series and Margaret was the speaker. She spoke about the book Style and Substance and went over some of her favorite photos and stories while putting the book together.

The highlight of the day was meeting her in person and having her sign my books.  Of course I introduced myself as the blogger who wrote about the little magazine delivery snafu and she knew exactly what I was talking about- LOVE HER!

It was an amazing day shared with Carlee, Stephanie AND Emily and it was a blast!  Thanks again ladies for such a fun afternoon!

me, Stephanie, Emily and Carlee

I hope Margaret and Elle Decor return to Boston soon- it was a fantastic event!

Fun photos- I love your top! Is that a necklace or is it part of the top? :)

Linda Merrill said...

Deliciously Organized said...

Such a fun event. She is gorgeous...

And, it's so nice to have you back!

Aren't you a lucky girl, too funny you mentioned the magazine delivery issue...and that she knew what you were talking about.

I just had to take a second look at the top photo, I was looking at your skirt and was puzzled why Margaret had her hand on the front of your waist, and how your skirt was a bold choice...then I realized it is a chair which you are directly behind! I found this extremely amusing...do you see it?!

Janell- I noticed that when I first saw the photo, too funny. A skirt in that print would be fun though, I love the fabric!

I am so mad I missed out on that photo with MR. Oh well, next time. Had a wonderful time with you ladies!! And so glad you're back and feeling better!

charm home said...

First of all, I'm so glad you recovered from your cyst. I've been so busy that I haven't been able to read my fave blogs. I had no idea you were sick.

Secondly, I'm so jealous of the Elle Decor event you got to attend! It looks fabulous from the pictures. Meeting Margaret Russell must have been amazing. I'm so glad you were able to get well before this event.

Hope you are having a great week. -c

Bummed I missed that lunch - sounds awesome! Sorry about your cyst - I had that happen to me 7 years ago and it was the most painful thing ever. Plus I was newly pregnant at the time and lost the baby. I've never had it again, and hope you don't either!
Have a great weekend,
deb
