Reflections and Revelry

Fashion - Food - Finer Things (6)


New Year’s Eve, you vixen! I adore your playful, party-girl spirit!

Everywhere you look, there are confections of glittery, shimmery, barely-there fashion on display and irresistible, intriguing invitations to sip, nosh and dance your way into the New Year.

What do you have going on this Saturday night? Are you hosting a party? Going someplace special to shout the countdown to midnight? Staying in with takeout and watching the ball drop on TV? More importantly: who are you gonna kiss? Come on…you can tell meeee!

As I pause for a rare moment of reflection, I find my heart bursting with gratitude for the incredible love you’ve shown SuthinGirl throughout the year.

Together, we’ve fêted fashion, food and finer things. We’ve oohed and ahhed our way though Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving Hostess and Holiday Gift Guides, with oodles of generous giveaways for my gorgeous SuthinGirls.

We’ve hosted extravagant parties raising over ten thousand dollars for Education Cures; money that built a kindergarten in Sierra Leone and outfitted it with much needed educational technology.

Our travel adventures have taken us from Atlanta to New York, Sedona, Amelia Island, Asheville, Highlands, Newport, Kiawah, Savannah, Charleston, Alys Beach and…swooooon…London Fashion Week. What a blessing to have made the most remarkable new friends along the way!

As you ring in the New Year, I am with you in spirit (and sequins and high heels), and wish you a remarkably happy, prosperous and healthy 2017!
