One year ago, I walked into the first ever Rising Tide Society meeting in Tampa. We all had high hopes for new friendships but we were unsure of what to expect. We crowded into the tables of Datz Dough in South Tampa and shared our experiences as creative small business owners. It was such a wonderful evening!! Fast forward one year later, and here we are, celebrating our first anniversary! Many memories, connections, collaborations, adventures have been shared in this past year. It’s truly such a blessing to be part of this group. I’m so thankful for our leaders Kelly (Tampa) and Jenny (St. Pete). They serve us so well, not only at our Tuesday meetings but consistently whenever we need them. I was honored when Kelly asked me to photograph the details of our anniversary get together last week at the gorgeous Rialto Theater. It was filled with special champagne sent from the Rising Tide founders, delicious treats from Tastes of Tampa Bay, and a motivating/hilarious magic show by Jeff Kaylor and his friends. He showed us the value in loving people better. It was such a sweet reminder. Enjoy these photos from our one year Tuesdays Together celebration!
