Naturals in The City 12!

Last Saturday, September 26 was Naturals in The City 12 and it was awesome!

The sun came out for us in full force, and the energy at Social Place that day was super. (Read “super” in a French accent)

Thank you to all the lovely ladies, and gents, and little ones that came to gather with us. Thank you Ebun, for helping us with registration. Thank you to our vendors, our speakers, and our ghen ghen caterer, Kitchen Butterfly. My friend Anu was our MC for the day, shout out to her for holding it down. And a special shout out to my wonderful fellow organizers, Natural Nigerian, Sherese (Carib Health) and @Ms_Isioma πŸ™‚

It was a beautiful day. We started on time, people were actually early! And I think we recorded our biggest number so far- about 200 people! So amazing! I cannot give you a play by play of what went down at the meet-up since I was busy running around, but I’ve got about 50-something thousand words in pictures!

If you were at the meet-up and you have blogged about it, leave a link in the comments and I’ll put that at the bottom of this post. πŸ™‚

I love these last two photos. The lady in green did not want to be photographed haha, but her friend in yellow made her.

Again, thank you everyone that made this beautiful day possible. We really really really really really appreciate you. <3
