I can't describe what it's like to dream up a concept and then see that same concept come to life. It's the closest thing to magic and brings to mind that Elizabeth Gilbert quote, "Create whatever causes revolution in your heart." These dinners 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 one. I used to think this nervousness was just because I was young and inexperienced, but I'm starting to realize that it's just part of the game.
With these events I'm constantly pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and I think this nervousness is always going to be along for the ride. I once read that feeling uncomfortable means that you're growing -- I like that. It means I've been growing a lot lately.
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 soon. It's strange to see these pictures and realize that every single person came to an event that I helped to organize. I’m in the business of memories, I guess. Life is unexpected, weird, and spectacular.
