As I mentioned yesterday, the launch party was a grand event. All design and details were handled by Lauren.
She persuaded photographer Weston Jandacka to come and shoot the first two hours of the party. These are all his photos.

Annie and visual artist/architect Bo Hok Cline.
There are always folks in the courtyard, near the food and drink.
Here are the co-conspirators looking a little punchy: Annie and Lauren, who has made this launch and my summer a truly memorable experience.
Last but by no means least. Tracey Graham. one of my former team, now leading the Washington state financial coalition. She presented me with a three legged frog who has coins in his mouth for good fortune. When we are in the office, the frog looks out the door. When we leave, we face the frog into the office, so as to maintain our good fortune.
It is a pleasure to have friends and colleagues such as those pictured above, especially when you have known many of them through various cycles of their lives.
