For those of you who didn't follow along on social media, the #SpringhouseBloggerBrunch was perfection. The Barn at Springhouse is absolutely gorgeous as is, but fill it with beautiful bloggers and Pinterest recipes, and it's 24k magic. 

  Have you ever seen anything more perfect? Even the sky is on point.

  You're looking at a build-your-own-mimosa bar. Needs to be a permanent fixture in every home.

  Aaaand a flower crown bar. You're not dreaming! It's real. Side note: making a flower crown is MUCH harder than it looks.

I have to say, mimosa in hand, feather heels on my feet, surrounded by sunshine and beautiful people (inside and out) is very much my ~vibe.~ I don't think any of us were ready to head home that afternoon!

More importantly, I cannot express what it means to have a group of people who support and lift each other up. That was a goal for Hartley Social from the very beginning. Within a few months of launching the business, we held our first blogger meet and greet, and were so excited to see the creative community in Lexington rise up to be a part. Several months ago, while chatting with Tif and Kayla at a TSG event, we dreamed up a gorgeous brunch at The Barn at Springhouse.

A recurring theme in our content and events (like Sit With Us) is community over competition. We are firm believers that there is room for everyone, and that everyone can shine simultaneously. It's refreshing to celebrate each other's talents, and it's even cooler to watch everyone's contributions result in something so beautiful.

Much like everyone has different strengths, we all have different experiences. Click the links below to see the #SpringhouseBloggerBrunch from a different perspectve!
