Who knew hosting a party online could be so much fun?! Last night was a serious blast. Not only did interacting with friends and family make us feel incredibly love, encouraged, and supported, but we got to do one of the things we love most - give gifts!
The idea for an online launch party came from attending one that Liz Cook held where I won a gift card. I was hooked. From then on I knew that this had to be the best way to launch a site – invite people to celebrate from their couch and give them presents. #winwinwin
So we did it. Three lynchburg friends crowded around our coffee table to help facilitate the party and there’s no way we could have done it without them! Ashley, Jenny, and Micah were able to keep up with everyone’s posts and help me keep my sanity. Through asking questions in the party, we got to learn about people’s first dates and seeing what outfit they would choose to live in forever. The answers made for belly laughs on this end and a Pinterest spree. Side note, I’m incredibly amazed by how stylish our friends are.
As much as a new brand and site is wonderful, people are what it’s about. If people didn’t believe in us, we wouldn’t be here. If we didn't love people, we wouldn’t be here. So thank you. Thank you for believing in us. Thank you for all the posts, texts, e-mails, and love you send our way. We're in this for people and last night was another joyful reminder.
And one more gift before we tackle this glorious Wednesday. Congrats on your spoils Amanda H.! We can't wait to get your Mini Instax 8 to you!
