Happy and Grateful!

I am so grateful to everyone who has signed up to follow my blog - friends, family, Kate Landers Events LLC, and Abigail's Bake Shop!  I hope that you enjoy reading :)

So much has happened so quickly in my worlds of planning Kira's party and launching Pocket Full of Parties (Want to know something funny? My hubby suggested that I use the word "launch" instead of "start" when referring to my new business...I laugh every time I use this word now!).

I mentioned that there was a potentially exciting opportunity!  And, it has come through beautifully!  I am very lucky that my social-butterfly (wait, that does not sound right for a man...firefly?) husband is so charming and has many valued and treasured friends.  One of these friends is Gary Kaplan, an acclaimed and incredibly gifted photographer, who is also a "fabulous friend" of Colin Cowie.  Yes, the Colin Cowie!!  Check out Gary's bio on Colin Cowie's website:

On a whim, I e-mailed Gary to see if he would be interested in photographing Kira's party.  Never expecting to hear from him, I assumed that I would be attempting photography on my own!  However, Gary was kind enough to reply.  After talking for several days (such an interesting man!), the whim became reality!  Although he has a wedding to shoot late that afternoon, he and his assistant are going to shoot the party! Wow!  Not only is he going to come the day before to do a photo shoot with Kira, but he is also going to come two hours before the party to take preparation photos.  His detail shots are gorgeous!  In my head I am singing a tune with the lyrics, "I have Gary Kaplan for two days - wow, wow, wow!"

I  am going to spend some time with Kira and cleaning my house now.

Thank you for visiting!
