Hey, Y’all! —That’s how they say it in the South, as I’ve learned.
Christiana the Contributor here to tell you ALL about how awesome our April 8th Meet Your Tall Sisters Brunch was At Marmi Shoes in Atlanta!
Any time you get ___ tall women in a room, it’s bound to be a great time, but this event felt special. Not only did we have women travel far and wide from Florida to Alabama and North Georgia to come join us for the celebration, but Marmi Shoes was so kind as to open up their Atlanta store location and provide us with a beautiful event space filled with fun music, fantastic food (seriously, those sliders were to die for!), and great drinks. They also had shelves stocked with cute shoes in our sizes, which was a major win for the tall team!
By 10 am, mimosas were poured, appetizers were served, and that room was THE happening place to be in Atlanta!
This is was my third Meet Your Tall Sisters Brunch now, and it never ceases to amaze me how you can put tall women of all ages, backgrounds, and life experiences together in a room and feel that instant connection and friendship. Bonding online via social media and blog comments is wonderful, but there’s something unexplainable about meeting your Tall Sisters in person! I don’t know about you, but I feel instant kinship when I see a tall women in the aisle at the grocery store or filtering through the racks for anything that is long enough at Target, but to actually be able to sit down and have a conversation was too wonderful to really put into words.
From tips on new clothing and shoe vendors to funny stories and personal life experiences, I can honestly say that I haven’t laughed as much or felt so understood in a long time.
For all of my Tall Sisters who attended, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You inspire, uplift, and encourage me more than you know, and I can only imagine how the other women in the room felt. I know I’m here writing this article, but I also have seen a bit of Bree’s behind-the-scenes thoughts to know that your support of The Tall Society means the world to her!
For all my Tall Sisters who missed out or haven’t been to an event yet, I wholeheartedly encourage you to attend the next one! It is an experience you will never forget!
We also would like to say thank you to Marmi Shoes for creating a beautiful experience for us in Atlanta, as well as for carrying shoe sizes for us tall ladies! We can’t thank you enough for your support. And also, I’d love to extend a huge thank you to Bree for allowing me the opportunity to share my thoughts on this brunch and as a contributor for The Tall Society. I feel so incredibly honored to connect with all you Tall Sisters on a regular basis!
Can’t wait for the next brunch!
