Darlings, if a picture’s worth a thousand words, then this should all suffice to give you an idea of just how wonderful our “Be Me or Do Me” book party this Saturday was. Over 250 Bitter Kittens made their way out to see us (and each other) over a nearly 6-hour period. Much laughing, connecting and just plain having fun was had by all, watched somewhat nervously by the poor mama pigeon just guarding her eggs and waiting for us all to leave. We decided to make her the symbol of our Mother’s Day book contest (The winners of which will be announced later this week).

We just want to publicly thank our good friends Emmett McCarthy of EMC2 for hosting the party in the adorable courtyard behind his store, Gorgeous Fabrics for coming out and pitching in in the way a good friend will when you turn to her and say in panic “HELP!” And special thanks to Sugar Flower Cake Shop for the GORGEOUS cake, to Bread for the delicious nibblies and to Miss Brittany Lovely, for being the best Bitter Kitten by running around like a slave all day at our beck and call.

And above all, thanks to you guys. Every time we meet the BKs, no matter what city we’re in, they all look around in wonder at each other and say, “What a fun, friendly, fabulous little crowd this is!” Darlings, it was never a surprise to us. We’re serious as a bounced check when we say we wouldn’t be a thing without the support of y’all. You’re gorgeous, darlings.
