Best of August + Quick Hello

wicked.jpgFriends, I apologize for disappearing without notice! Last week was a flurry of wrapping up client work before heading off on a much needed vacation; my intention to post a gone fishing notice evaporated into the ether! I hope you had a great holiday weekend. We'll be back to regular event listings come Friday and meanwhile, I wanted to belatedly share the best of August posts, as well as major props for Wicked. Laurel and I went on Sunday with my sister and her partner and it was AMAZING. Go grab tickets before the show closes on September 15!
