Leigh’s recently was an in kind sponsor (yes, we did some amazing goodie bags!) for the Grand Rapids Junior League event with guest speaker, author Emily Griffin. Prior to Emily speaking, there was an informal meet and greet on the deck at the JW Marriot with Emily. Ok, she is so much fun….if we lived by each other, she could be my BFF (Best Friends Forever). She is only 38 years old, married, mother of twins, best selling author and now her books are being made into movies…starting with Something Borrowed starring Kate Hudson. Yes, I think she’s an over-achiever…but a really fun over-achiever!! Check out her web site for more info on her charmed life…. www.EmilyGiffin.com We also received a signed copy of her new book, Heart of the Matter….can’t wait to read it! Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention she has great style. Loved the little black dress she was wearing – darling!
