Andrea is very involved with the local goings on and always has great suggestions for fun and unique things to do. She invited us to join them for the NH Made Local Stars Celebration Dinner. It sounded pretty amazing and we were thrilled to go. The dinner was spectacular with so many fabulous choices. Not only did Andrea invite us to join them, but she also offered to write the blog post for it so that I could just enjoy the night – so sweet of her. So without further ado, Andrea’s NH Made Dinner post!
