Today marks the one-year anniversary of me buying my favorite red Maje dress. Also today I awoke to a text message from my mentor about lanterns. Here’s something you might not know about me: I’m really really into parties, especially parties at my mentor’s house, but I don’t just enjoy attending them, I fully relish the whole experience of going behind the scenes and helping set the stage for these events. I might have thought I bit off more than I could chew today when I saw the lanterns in the Chrysalis. There were so many of them, their electric wires coiled like snakes. But getting them hung ended up actually being fun, and once the party was underway and it got dark out and everyone was taking pictures with the beautiful lanterns, I was so happy to have participated in that adventure.
