Party Pics and Awards from Grit's One-Year Anniversary

Instant Grit

Phew! Has it been (more than) a year already?! Last night, bloggers and friends headed to The Alley for Grit's one-year anniversary celebration. The food and drinks were delish (big thanks to The Alley), the bowling got competive, and, of course, what's a b-day party without cake? Ever So Sweet Bakery delivered with aplomb by way of gorgeous, great tasting cupcakes. Scroll through the party pics by Ruta Elvikyte above—to see captions, click the first photo once.
