Las Morenas de España recently just turned one and we wanted to celebrate. There's something beautiful about bringing an online community together in real life to congregate, meet new friends and catch up with old. The evening brought in women who have been living all over the country for over 10 years, to those who just moved earlier in the week to ladies who were just in town visiting for the weekend but knew that they needed to be in the space. The room was filled with great vibes, meaningful conversation and women slaying in all white.
