It all began with the LivePerson Aspire 2011 Event I participated in Tuesday night. Held at a very cool loft like space in Chelsea, Tuesday Aspire 2011 was a three day conference at which LivePerson's global customers gathered to meet, network, hear incredible speakers and learn from one another. I was present at Tuesday night's "Evening of Discover, Enrichment and Connection" to teach jewelry making and it was a blast! Along with a mixologist, sushi chefs, cigar rollers, and several other experts, I had a chance to mingle, chat and teach this incredible group of people while a band played in the background. The energy in the room was incredible and I found it sort of awesome that 75% of my students were men wanting to make necklaces for their girlfriends, wives and daughters. So much fun!

Peter played Puff the Magic Dragon, If I Had a Hammer, and a new song which is the theme for his organization Operation Respect. Peter's message was a beautiful one, about respecting one another and the world in which we live, and deserves it's own post so more on that in the very near future. I sat just a few feet away from him and even had the opportunity to meet him (he kissed my hand!) after the show (Thanks Jeremy!!!).
|Peter brought along these guitars which he painted and offered everyone a chance to win one of them. His contest inspired me and so I'll be holding a similar one soon so stay tuned...|

So yes, I'm walking around with a smile on my face and feeling truly lucky to live the life I've created. Up next is a fantastic weekend including watching fireworks from a friend's roof, working on my New York City Marathon signs, engraving Race Bling, and volunteering at the New York Road Runner Poland Spring Marathon Kickoff 5 Miler!
How was your week? Anything exciting on your agenda this weekend? I love hearing from you so leave a note and fill me in on what's putting a smile on your face these days!
