I don’t know about y’all but i had one of the best weekends EVER! I’ve always gotten a lot of requests to plan a Meet & Greet.. Locally in Chicago and wherever else but I felt too nervous and silly to formally plan something. I dont know why.. I had no idea of how it would go down, if anyone would even come out (because really, who am I?), and it just felt a little too…. narcissistic. Luckily, my friend Mohammad (I refuse to call you by your “stage” name lol! aka your last name – Langston), took the reigns and planned a Chicago M&G. HOW GRATEFUL AM I!? I had it all wrong, it was nothing formal or pretentious like i had always imagined… the best way i can describe it is.. “sweet”. Literally two hours of smiling, selfies, and new friends.. every single person was SO nice, i loved hearing everyone’s “story”.. some girls trekked out from the burbs with their families, a group was on vacation from Toronto, a few lived in or had strong ties to Michigan which made me feel like i was at home sans homesickness. Sighh i want to do it all over again! If any of you couldn’t make it this past weekend let me know!! I’m so down to set up a round 2 with coffee/cupcakes. There was a group of sisters that had to leave one behind because she had work, so i want a do-over with them anyways! The more the merrier!
I had a early morning shoot with Nina of NBC’s American Dreambuilders so i was running suuper late to the M&G and didn’t have time to find my camera :( i wanted to vlog it so bad and take lots of photos. I didn’t take a single ONE (except for my very first bean photo after living here for over a year lol) soooo please send me photos if you came and have some! I found a few via Instagram but there were so many more of you and i want to keep in touch with you all! Social media has made it so easy to continue yesterday’s high and to remember names/faces & to keep in touch! Please tag/tweet me @irenesarah or email me! email@example.com
THANK YOU to each and every person that came out, I loved all of the time we got to spend together. Thank you for your love and support and I hope you enjoyed meeting me as much i loved meeting you!
