Two days after finding out our unfortunate news, I attended a dinner for Alt Summit NYC. During those first days after we got the IVF results, I wasn't necessarily feeling like going to a party. I wanted to be by Danny's side every second and was just letting the news settle in. But by the time the day came for Alt, I felt up for it...and it turns out that a party was wonderful timing.
The conference kicked off with a dinner Wednesday night. I got to attend the dinner at the Sunday Suppers studio, a place I had been dreaming of visiting (I'd love to host a dinner + lecture there soon.) The space is in Brooklyn and just gorgeous...everything about the night just felt beautiful, peaceful and good. It was wonderful to relish being in Brooklyn - to look out the huge windows at the stunning, expansive view and to feel love for this place I call home. So many moments just took my breath away and made my heart feel so big.
It also felt good to be surrounded by some women I have come to love and admire so much. For starters, I just love Amy Hackworth. She really is one of the most delightful women I've ever met.
The dinner at Sunday Suppers was healthy and delicious. They were so kind to prepare my dishes without dairy and gluten - which was so wonderful.

I got to sit by dear Jenny Komenda with that view of Brooklyn right behind us. It made my heart tug as Jenny is moving from Brooklyn to Arizona soon. But I'll hold that moment near and dear. And I'll never forget how magical that evening felt. I was so grateful to feel alive and happy that night - to feel friendship, peace, and love - and to feel overwhelmed with gratitude for all that I have.
P.S. I have way too many photos to share, so I'll post about the second day at the conference soon - including details about being on Martha Stewart Radio with Darcy Miller!! :)
