I can't describe what it's like to dream up a concept and then see that same concept come to life outside of my head. It's the closest thing to magic I've ever encountered and it satisfies something deep within my soul. It brings to mind that Elizabeth Gilbert quote, "Create whatever causes revolution in your heart." These events cause that revolution.
But even though these events stir up my soul like nothing else, without fail, I feel incredibly nervous at the beginning of each event. I used to think this nervousness was just because I was young and inexperienced, but I'm starting to realize that it's all part of the game. With these events I'm constantly pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and I think this nervousness is here to stay. I once read that feeling uncomfortable means that you're growing -- I like that.
Our next dinner (TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE) is coming up fast and it's gonna be another marathon of emails, long phone calls, and late nights. Every dinner presents its unique challenges, but we have a solid team and we're getting better at what we're doing. I still don't know what to call *this* though. Popups? Dinners? Dining experiences? Mini-restaurants? Whatever it is, I love it.
Below are a few more shots from the evening, courtesy of Kenzie Wyatt. It was a wonderful night and I can't wait to do it all again next month.
