It is hard to believe that it has already been one year since I launched Noteworthy! Earlier this month we celebrated this huge milestone with a special backyard dinner party. It was truly a night to remember, surrounded by family, friends, and many of the people that have supported me over this past year. I started Noteworthy in hopes of inspiring others, but have also been inspired by the people I have had the opportunity to meet and work with as a part of this journey.

I wanted to take advantage of the mild fall weather typical of early October and gather outside around a large table for an intimate anniversary dinner. I enlisted Chef Craig Barbour of Roots Catering to present the perfect fall menu for our guests. Craig and his team made throwing a dinner party so enjoyable, handling all the details and serving delicious seasonal food.
