Listen, we know it tends to cheapen the sentiment to say it year after year, but does it really, if we mean it from the bottom of our hearts? Because, y’all… this week was THE BEST MEETUP EVER!
Yes, it was hot – per usual. Yes, it was a zoo – per usual. But here’s what felt distinctly different this year: the energy. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly how or what made it feel this way, but there was a palpable joy in the air. For four days, we existed in an orb radiating with gratitude and friendship and welcoming and warmth. The showroom walls seem to still be reverberating with the sound of laughter and outfit encouragements, of connections being made over common ground and new friendships being born, and of the sweetest symphony of southern accents and jingling jewelry.
