Blogstar, biz cards & Mother's Day gift ideas!

Let's recap, shall we? Stunning day weather-wise in Charleston in case you were wondering. A hint of the summer heat that awaits.

Though I missed seeing it over coffee this morning, I later watched my favorite blogger, Heather Armstrong, be interviewed on the Today Show. Heather writes a daily blog and just published a book called What I Learned About My Father (in therapy). It's a collection of essays written by a fantastic group of her blogger pals. Anywho, not only is Heather a great writer. She writes funny; she writes touching; she writes unabashed. Plus, she coined a phrase in our popular vernacular. (Throat clearing) Ahem, to be "dooced." To be fired from one's job for blogging about one's job.

Anyway, back to the interview. I will keep this brief as this is not an entertainment blog, however I have to just say that it's worth your entire day to watch Kathie Lee Gifford very carefully almost say something not that kind to Heather. I have my own thoughts about Kathie Lee Gifford, which I will keep to myself, unless of course you ask me outright. (Joke, kinda.) At any rate, the interview is an amazing look at the power of the blog as a means to build community (be it online or person to person) and as an art form.

In other news, we received a big portion of our new identity system from the printer today. Let me tell you, I just looked at those new business cards and said, "Hello, lover." Well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but I was really psyched and as our pal Gil Shuler says: "Good design is good for business." Can I get an A-MEN?

By the way, if you haven't already made reservations at Fish for the Sequoia Grove Wine Dinner with Molly Hill...well, I hope you don't make me come over there. It's Monday, May 12 at 7 pm. (Um, hello, great Mother's Day gift!) Nico is preparing 3 courses to go with 3 incredible Sequoia Grove wines. Winemaker Molly Hill will be on-hand to regale you with stories of each wine and will delve into how she helped this fine Napa Valley vineyard gain its organic status. It's $45/person, which includes the wine pairings, and honey, that is just a sweet deal. As we say here in the South, holler at me! 843.722.FISH.

By the way, I took the photo above on my way home this evening. Just a reminder of all the history here.
