I am so excited that today I finally got to meet my "blogger" friend Diane of DK Designs in San Jose, CA. We have been following each other's blogs for months now, and she's in town this weekend to work on a wedding.
If you are not familiar with Diane's work, she makes these AMAZING clay flowers - bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces... as well as invitations. You can check out her website here.
We had such a wonderful time catching up with each other today. First, we had dinner at one of my favorite restaurants - Cafe O'Lei. Then we went back to the Grand Wailea Resort (where Diane is staying) to meet with her client for some last minute details. And then we spent another few more hours just chatting and exchanging wedding ideas! Haven't had a girl's night out in a long time, so it was super fun!
Diane was so sweet... she knew that I love green cymbidium orchids, so she made this clay arrangement as a gift to me! I LOVE it!
And with our businesses, we both constantly have to be connected to the outside world. Sorry, it's not a great picture, but I want to show the "Battle of our Smart Phones - the iPhone (me) vs. the Blackberry Storm (Diane's)"!
Thanks, Diane! I had a great time tonight and we'll have to do this again next time in the Bay Area! :)
