It's no secret I love my city. Last weekend I came out to sell my jewelry and celebrate local businesses and do-gooders at the Oakland Indie Awards. Like any public Oakland event, there was great music, insane food and the most amazing people. The kind you didn't even know existed (example: woman, dressed to the nines, welder by trade, urban gardening pioneer & food blogger in spare time, and totally beautiful and sweet). I mean, where do these people come from? The answer? Everywhere, and they end up here, and I love it.
Oh! And I got to meet our new Mayor and she agreed to take a pic with me. EEEEE! Geek moment! See third image down.
