What a day!

Today was the Meyer Center's Annual Ladies Luncheon. Many of you know that AnnaKate goes this amazing school. She receives all of her therapies there and is in a classroom where the teachers work on her therapy goals as well. We feel so lucky to have the Meyer Center in our lives. This luncheon raises money for the school and is just a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season. They have a silent auction, lunch and entertainment for over 1,000 people! Here is recap of our fun day..

I made little thank you notes for each guest at our two tables.

Here are the tables. The theme was a Time to Remember. It was dedicated to Dr. Meyer who just recently passed away. The tribute to him was beautiful.
Some of our family and friends enjoying lunch.
Now here is the best part of the day! At the chef's auction, I purchased a dinner party from an amazing local chef, Vicky Moore. She is like a rock star to me! She was recently featured in Esquire magazine as a Break Out Chef to Watch. I am just beside myself and can't wait to have her cook dinner for us!

My great friends, Susan and Erin.

I LOVE the new Meyer Center t-shirts.

I just can't tell you what a special day it was! So many wonderful people coming together for such an amazing place. AnnaKate is one lucky girl!
