The Lansing Collective is One Year Old!

It seems like it was just yesterday, we were sitting on my living room floor composing the introductory post about the Lansing Collective (LC). This past year has flown by and in retrospect the LC has come a long way. I think I can speak for everyone at LC when I say that we had no idea how much joy this blog would bring us. The LC has given us a whole new perspective on our city.  In addition, this blog has brought us so much closer to each other.

During this last year we have been joined by incredible writers like Anika Fassia,  Ken Kingery and the famous Jess Knott; each of them bring a unique voice and unrivaled sass. I can’t go on without mentioning John Buckler; he is an *incredible* personality and an even better writer. I have learned a lot from each of the contributors. As I spend more time with them, I feel fortunate to be living in this city. Look forward to posts with Anika, John, Ken and Jess’s signatures.

To celebrate our one year anniversary we are having a celebration at the Waterfront Bar and Grill‘s patio in Downtown Lansing. DJ Rachel and Jake Petchel; two of Lansing’s best DJ’s will be spinning hoppin’ tunes. I am resisting a digression about how much I love DJ Rachel with Herculean strength . . . Gah! I freakin’ LOVE this woman! She can read the dance floor like no other and spins the most perfect tunes. She also has an amazingly loving and giving personality. If you haven’t met her yet, you should.

The Purple Carrot Truck and Bake ‘N Cakes have generously donated gourmet cake pops and cupcakes for the event and Waterfront Bar and Grill has given us the warmest welcome. We really hope you can join us for this celebration.
