We had been all ajitter with excitement ever since sweet friend Danni unveiled plans to open a shop. We commemorated her unprecedented venture this Friday evening past before her shop's grand opening. The celebration was absolutely marvelous a la Danni & Nick, as you can perceive per the photos above. We had a ball admiring all the lovely decor, oohing at handmade or one-of-a-kind finds, savoring tasty eats, participating in photobooth craziness, listening to Me & Mr. Cassidy live, dabbling at DIY stations, and cavorting with a smattering of lovely chums Ruby, Linda, Reinna, RJ, and Ashley. Danni is one of the most creative gals I know (she was the most terrific coordinator at our wedding), and she has outdone herself with her brick-and-mortar store brimming with vintage pretties and crafty curios. We are so proud of her, and are so encouraged that the Lord has blessed her and Nick with their dream of a store! Witnessing sweet friends glorify the Lord through their creativity is such a beautiful testament to God's goodness. If you're in Southern California, you must make a pit stop at Oh, Hello Friend!

P.S. Thank you all for your sweet thoughts in my previous post about my dear grandma. They really mean so much, and I am so touched by your kindness. Thank you times a million again and again. God is good in manifold ways.


  1. I love it so much. All of it, I can't say what my favorite thing is that she's got going on, it's all so lovely.
