What a year 2016 was for MeditatedMelanin.
What started as an idea has turned into something bigger than I ever imagined. All of the views, shares, comments and constructive criticism have meant the world to me. Without you all, none if this would be possible. A year into this and MeditatedMelanin is already beyond so many of my dreams; I can only imagine what more is to come.
But, like I have always said, this blog is as much mine as it is yours. And it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t invite you to celebrate with me for a fantastic year of MeditatedMelanin, and many more. With that being said, I would like to cordially invite you to #HeyBeautiful: The Blogaversary on January 21st, 2017.
This event will be held in Columbia, Missouri at the Gaines/Oldham Black Culture Center from 3pm-5pm. Attendees will be engaging in networking and mingling, self-reflection, and great conversation. There will include a panel discussion with women from the Mizzou community, and an open-mic empowerment session where attendees are welcome to applud and encourage other women in the room, or even themselves!
This event is free to all who RSVP. However, there will be a private mixer catered by College Kitchen from 2pm-3pm for 40 RSVP ticket holders. Tickets are $7 and include an appetizer buffet in a more intimate setting. If interested, RSVP info must be received by January 6th at 10pm.
I truly cannot wait to see you all there in a few weeks! I think what’s in store will be a great time for togetherness and thought-provoking conversation among women. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you soon!
