{great people meeting great people}


Isn't that photo above lovely? I found the photo via the Alt Blog, and it was taken during Alt NYC at a dinner hosted by Sunday Suppers. Sharing a good meal and lively conversation with inspiring people in a beautiful setting is my idea of a good time. It's a dream of mine to have some kind of version of Sunday Suppers, where a group of amazing people gather in a setting lit by candlelight and outfitted with long communal tables, where talk about life, big ideas, small ideas, trials, and triumphs can take place. (Hm, wonder if Sunday Suppers has regional chapters?) 









Until such dreams can be realized, much inspiration about blogging and business advice can be found via the new Alt Blog. If you haven't yet checked it out, I highly recommend it. (The online classes they offer are also very good.) Here are a few of my favorite posts:

I'm wondering, are you sitting on any unrealized dreams? You never know who can help if you speak them out loud.

  1. Hi Theresa! These shots make me feel happy and satisfied. Sharing good food and good conversation by candlelight in a beautiful setting, as you said, perfectly good times. Will be checking out the new Alt blog, thanks for the tip!

  2. Lovely photos! I've just had a sea change and said thanks, but no thanks to the big freelance job I've done for several years. Totally freeing and totally scary! I'm excited but feeling like, GULP! Now I have to make some moves here, people!  I'm ready to live a more creative live, and yet not sure how to make that happen. What I do know is that I'll be relying more and more on my creative family here in my blogging world and that I long for a creative community in person like that is created with the Sunday suppers. Maybe someday. Thank you so much for recommending the Alt blog, and especially for linking to SPL. We both (me and SPL) bow to you!

  3. Theresa-
    I thought the same thing and have been thinking of ways to do something like this. I want to get some sponsors to help. What do you think? Also, are you back on m-f blog schedule?

  4. Lovely photos and musings, very inspiring. The best conversations really do happen over meals. I will also be checking out Alt and maybe a few of their classes as well. I've been taking baby steps with my blog so far, but might be ready to start taking bigger leaps of faith. We'll see. as always, thanks for sharing! xo!

  5. Sunday Suppers sounds perfect! I think getting together in any capacity with bloggers or people who want to share ideas and create new ones is inspirational. The bloggers world certainly is a great vehicle.

    It's all go in London and it's really nice to meet bloggers I've been following on Twitter.

    Wish we would live closer so we could create our own Sunday Suppers.
    Just hang in there because I believe it will all happen one way or another (not the living closer mind you).

  6. I'd love to be at a dinner like that but I realize that small groupings can be just as effective as large ones.  And dinner with people you least expect can be some of the best .  Thanks for including the links

  9. If you had asked me that question 2 weeks ago, I would have said that I've always wanted to write a book. And now I'm doing it! It's surprisingly simple, you just move from inaction to action. Sounds daunting, I know. I'm also waiting for my dream of someone gifting me an apartment in Paris, but I don't think that one will happen anytime soon :) Beautiful photos and I'm off to check out AltBlog now! xoxo

  10. Sunday Suppers sound great! Hmm, my unrealized dream would be to become a carpenter and design and built my own furniture. It's a dream I gave up on but that's ok and I channel it with all my furniture restoring projects ;)

  11.  "I'm wondering, are you sitting on any unrealized dreams? You never know who can help if you speak them out loud."
    Well, I'm working on such a big one that I don't have room for any of the others (which I'm pretty sure you know about) at the moment! :DIt's so typical of you to have a dream that involves helping others. It's one of the things I admire the most about you.Sunday Suppers is such a brilliant idea - it epitomizes everything that I love about blogging - sharing ideas, support and community.Isn't Alt's online home great? It's the next best thing to actually going to The Summit. Almost. :) x

  12. You are most welcome, Holly. If only we all lived closer, I already have a guest list that would fill up a full page, single spaced, three columns. :)

  13. Good for you, Lauren! Though scary, I think you've made a wise decision. Lean us much as you need on us (me) to help with living that creative life. I think we can all relate in various degrees. Let's support each other.

  14. I'm thinking I'm in, Teri. We need to work out the details and devise a plan. Wheels are spinning.
    Not ready just yet for the M-F schedule again...Just wanted to pop in and give Alt Blog a shout-out. ;)

  15. Lauren, if you're ready for bigger leaps, definitely check out the Alt Blog and take some of their classes. The classes are really reasonable, too ($15!).

  16. Tina, I really enjoyed your post about the Hospital Club. It's like you were reading my mind. ;) Too bad I couldn't get Sue Walter to be my mentor. Continue enjoying the London Design Festival.

  17. Yes, I definitely agree that smaller, more intimate groups can be just as nice. Then, you don't feel like you have to work the room, and you can devote more time with each individual.

  18. When I win the lottery, everyone is invited. :)

  19. You know, I specifically thought of you when I was writing that question. You're living proof that blogging can help one peel away layers to get to their true passion. Go, Erin!

  20. Well, restoring furniture is nothing to sneeze at, and I've seen some of your projects. I would say you're living your dream, just tweaked a bit. Plus, who knows what the future holds.

  21. That first image is so lovely. Simple and pretty is my ideal way to go with a table setting. Love the rustic feel of the tables and chairs too. Nice balance. Maybe we can create a little Sunday Supper stile event with our LA Bloggers chapter. A nice fall one would be a good idea, yes?
