Friday we road tripped to Des Moines for The Alt Magazine reveal. A couple years ago her voice danced over the phone line as she told me about this magazine. I asked her if she wanted to be a part of it her senior year, and she replied “Yes… if I get asked!!”

Senior honor students are selective chosen by professors to participate in this year long venue of making a magazine together. Journalism majors, communication majors, photography majors and of course graphic design majors (of course!) come collaborate to put this magazine together.
So she DID get asked to be on the staff, and has worked with her team these past two semesters to put this together. Fast forward to now…
We thoroughly enjoyed seeing downtown Des Moines, before the reveal began. Isn’t the State Capitol Bldg. pretty? The East Village is such a happening hot spot. Loved the energy there. She will actually be working there in a few months, after graduation. Did I tell you that? So exciting!
We had a quick sip and munch before the reveal. I highly recommend Gramercy Tap . Spot on trend menu, staff and environment.
We met several of Allie’s professors. I’ve heard lots about them for 3 years now, so I was so glad to meet some of them. I’m a big fan of Mary’s work…

We got to catch up with some of her roomies and besties at The Reveal. Such cute girls!
They unveiled the magazine cover at 8:00 p.m. sharp!

Check out the models from the magazine, and cover. Pretty cool!
Such a wonderful night, and I’m so glad we got to be a part of it! She graduates in a couple weeks! This is such a busy month!
