LAUNCH PARTY VIDEO (part 2)!!!! I feel so grateful that I am currently living my dream! It has been made possible because of hundreds of people who have offered support, expertise and believed that I could make a book that shared an untold story about our amazing food scene and some of the people that make it possible. BIG THANKS to @7cinematics and @_benwalter for making this beautiful video! I have to credit the amazing food to our chef contributors who made this the best food event of the year: Anthony DiBernardo ( @swigswinebbq )Tito Marino & Leila Schardt ( @embers.and.ashes ), Vinson Petrillo ( @zerogeorgest ), Emily Hahn ( @thegetawayonking ), Shuai Wang ( @shortgrain ), Blair Machado ( @poogansporchchs ), Brad Grozi (@wildoliverest ), Joe DiMaio ( @darling_oyster_bar ) and @sugarbakeshop . Our AMAZING cheese spread was made possible because Christian Hansen ( @blueridgecreamery ) drove down an entire truck full from Greenville! Oysters from @ladyislandoysters fish from @abundantseafood Cocktails were created by the MAGNIFICENT mixologist Megan Deschaine ( @macintoshchs ). I appreciate that our friends from Farm 2 Table Event Co. in Columbia Vanessa Bialobreski and Kristian Niemi loaned and brought us the gorgeous decorations and brought lovely fresh flowers from @cityrootsfarmersmarket . My event coordinator is the BEST...Theresa McGowan really helped me to bring it all together and the event ran smoothly. Thanks Stephen Blackmon for the pics @sbphotocreative . So much love, appreciation and gratitude to our staff and volunteers Carly Terrier, Melissa Ann Barton, Liz Luke, Natalie Carn, Andrea Margiotta & Tim, Jessica Petrillo, Hope Macintosh (y’all were amazing)! LOVED The Blue Stone Ramblers rocked the place with their bluegrass tunes! Bowens Island was the perfect location for this Lowcountry event! I will forever be grateful to my BBF’s who flew in from all across the country, Krystal Meisel (for helping me make the book), Kristen Potthoff (for coming to help make the party a success and help me prepare) and my amazing fiancé James Townsend who has supported and believed in me from the day we met.

AMAZING TURNOUT TODAY!!! Thanks CHS for coming out to support my book signing at the farmers market. It’s always a huge compliment when one of your favorite chefs comes out to buy a copy (Nate Whiting-YOURE THE BEST)! And he even brought me a food gift bag-which made my day.

IM READY TO SHARE NOW. (Sometimes you just need a minute to yourself...or a few days and that’s OK:) It’s been 3 days since the book launch party on Sunday June 24th at Bowens Island. It was one of the happiest days of my life. I haven’t done a single post about it until now for several reasons. 1-being that there was literally no time to do it the day of the party (b/c I was busy making it all come together and then enjoying it in the moment). 2-I’ve been working 12 hour work days since then and barely even have had time to eat in between client meetings) . 3-I’m still in complete shock and awe that we actually: MADE A BOOK! and I achieved one of my life goals. It’s hard to post about it. It’s a mixture of feelings and an overwhelmingly large mound of gratitude to even attempt to climb to the top of and I’m not sure how to properly verbalize or put it in all into words. I can say this: IT FEELS AMAZING to reach a goal (although I’m ultra critical of myself-and can sometimes only see the flaws). I’m extremely proud of it. It’s part of me, an extension of heart and my passion and a beautiful glimpse into part of the lives of each contributor. It is one of the most special experiences of my life. The party was a blast and I think it’s safe to say that “we” (the staff, volunteers, chefs and attendees) all ate...very, very well and had a lovely evening together talking, sharing and embracing our amazing #chs food scene! BIG THANKS to everyone that made it possible!!! Cheers to the next chapter...wherever it leads me...I’m thrilled and ready to go there!
