The LifeBeats Project Story Search Soiree

in the Spring i hosted a Story Search through my podcast The LifeBeats Project
in conjunction with Diana Putnam Photography's series Rose Colored Lenses
asking my listeners to submit stories of people who inspire them
or to share their own inspirational story

it is part of my mission to be able to share how extraordinary people are with you
i had 20 nominees submit stories
and how could i only share 2 of them with you

reading through each one of their stories was so uplifting and inspiring 
that i decided i would honor them all

welcome to the first Story Search Soiree
at my beautiful new home
keeping it simple was my goal
in order to focus on why we were gathering
and their stories

our simply beautiful decorations
felt ball garlands, floral buntings, wooden flatware, and sunburst napkins
were there to add sunshine and feminine fun
provided by the darling party and paper store My Paper Crush
dedicated to having all the pretty things in one place

you have a chance to win a $50 gift card to their darling shop
by simply following the steps shown on my Instagram post of the soiree
giveaway will end Thurs Sept 22 so hurry and enter

our guests were provided with some gifts as little physical reminders of how truly amazing they are

notebooks and pen by My Paper Crush

my favorite heartbeat necklace by Sweet Lemon Boutique
perfect for my brand and a special gift to my interviewed guests

beautifully burned wood leather wrap 'be brave' bracelet by Sweet Saltwater Designs

seven of us gathered together
some arriving after our photos
to share in a delicious meal made by my loving mother who knows how much cooking stresses me out
she used fresh vegetables from our garden as part of her main shrimp pasta dish
strawberry shortcake my favorite for dessert

i am glad we got the women behind the lens out in front
to know Diana is to love her
she has a heart of gold and a magical talent

the darling Ashley Lundgreen of Visage Artistry

when i envisioned this dinner
i imagined it to be for the purpose of coming together in meaning conversations and to share our stories
three of the attendees shared their stories through video
together we watched them and were able to discuss together the underlying stories
each of us shared a piece of our story
and we talked into the dark of the evening
creating connection and learning from one another
it couldn't have gone any more perfectly

here are the videos for you to witness the beauty of each of these stories

the passionate Carissa of Family History Modernized

i am so excited to share with you this coming week on my podcast The LifeBeats Project
about the new social media campaign i will be launching soon
to help give everyone who wants to share their story an opportunity to do so
to share that #lifebeatsforme
