It only took me two months to post the Faking Balance launch party pictures to Facebook. And another month to get them archived here. This is how it works when your to-do list never ends. We get to decide that which we do first, second, and maybe never. At work, we call this ‘ruthless prioritization.’ We have to continuously evaluate what it is we will focus on. Some things that are important never actually make it to the top of the list. But those most critical tasks always get done. Eventually.
Celebrating the celebration of a new book in the world, my book– that’s very, very important. So, here you have it. Everything in its own perfect time. That’s #FakingBalance.
Faking Balance Launch Party In Pictures
Posh Alley Boutique and the Urban Tub are the most amazing hosts.
They even make a signature scent for Faking Balance AND procure these adorable leather bracelets.
Christina finds her name in the acknowledgements. This page is probably going to be shadow-boxed and put on display in her family room.
Sharon is explaining to her daughter why it is important to have friends who can make you laugh until you pee. I’m guessing.
Obviously, there is wine. Thankfully, Kristin knows how to get the bottles open QUICKLY. Because my work is best consumed with wine.
The most fun occurs in close proximity to the wine table.
Of course there are also pink shoes.
I am most comfortable with a Sharpie in hand. And people asking for my autograph. Not too proud to admit that.
Did you know? Faking Balance is also for boys.
Allison is Faking Balance’s biggest fan. Mostly because it’s hilarious. As you can see.
John and Yvonne are studying the pieces about marriage. Because I am a wise sage and have managed to stay married for 100 years.
Sarah can’t wait to go home and read.
Becky, Joyce, Meredith and Sarah, like so many others, use the Faking Balance launch party as an excuse to get together.
And this guy. Just excited the party has come and gone.
Thanks to all who made it out that night to celebrate the launch of Faking Balance: Adventures in Work and Life with us, and to the many more who were there in spirit.
