Happy Birthday, Steve!!!


Steve!!! Happy, happy birthday!!!

You've been busy lately...So, we hope you can take this day off, and just relax! Take a hike in your beautiful backyard. Build something (for fun, not work). Or, get ready for your REALLY EXCITING vacation to India coming up in a few weeks! That sounds like fun! 
{While you're at it, maybe set some dates for a trip to the OC?}


Wishing you the very best birthday, and celebrating with you {and champagne} in spirit!

love, 
kerry, john and audrey



PS- Why not scroll down and watch your birthday video again!

We got him!

Steve's birthday party was a hit! He was really surprised!
 
It was a great night with family and friends, (although several of you were missed), and thanks again to everyone who helped me make his birthday video! It turned out adorable, if I do say so myself.
 
You'll have to watch...

Ladies, listen up!

Finally! 


There's a new blog in town, and it's seriously something you're going to want to follow... 




Fun fashion and recipe ideas? Check.
Unique local events and news? Check.
Informative women's health, nutrition and wellness information? Check.
Community and personality spotlight stories? Check.



Toast is the NEW, one-stop blog for women in northern Nevada. There's nothing else like it. Period.

And, I'm so excited that the Carson Tahoe Women's Health Institute, with some expert PR and emerging media counsel, took the initiative to launch a site like this in our area. It's been needed for a long time, and it was my pleasure to help develop, design and launch this exciting social campaign. 


First of all, the Toast brand and blog is absolutely beautiful {if I do say so myself}. Click here to take a look. A perfect blend of playful-fun-girly, and sophisticated-rich with informative content-valuable. 

And, Toast isn't just a blog. It's a complete social campaign including a presence on the most popular sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Vimeo

#likeit
#followit
#pinit
#tagit
#helpspreadtheword

.................................................................................



Are you a woman getting active in northern Nevada? Perhaps you're in the kitchen cooking up something delicious and healthy for your family? Maybe headed out the door to ski or hike in Tahoe, go for a jog down by the Truckee River, or simply inspired by a healthy choice in general? 

#gogirl

And, when you're so moved to post about it, Instagram it, Tweet it, Pin it, etc- include the Toast campaign's new hashtag- #herestoherhealth. We'll be following this tag, and look forward to connecting with you on our various social platforms, and getting inspired by your own healthy actions.

You'll probably notice immediately when you check out the blog, but SPOILER ALERT! This adorable, local couple is our launch-love-story... 



We're very excited at K. Sutherland PR about the launch of Toast, and I personally can't wait to hear your thoughts! Enjoy! 


love, kerry

Happy Birthday John!


Happy Birthday, Babe!

Celebrating isn't necessarily the mood right now, but I love you and am looking forward to sunny, happy days ahead. Hoping you had the best day possible, and don't worry- I'll get working on a half-birthday party in August now. You deserve a do-over birthday {again} this year. 


love, kerry

He was always there. 
And, he will always be missed.

2.8.13

One year ago today...




It's TRULY unbelievable to me that it's been one year since I started K. Sutherland PR. And, I'm even more ridiculously in awe of the amazing, incredible, seriously perfect, dozens of brands I've represented since I first launched. I'm so, so lucky.

I work really hard too. And, I simply love it. 

As if it could get any better, I feel even more lucky to have such dedicated, committed, hardworking, BRILLIANT people to work with... Jill, Steph, Ryan, Sarah- you mean so much to me, honestly. I appreciate you so much.

I've been really excited about my one year business anniversary. It just feels like an amazing accomplishment....One year?!?!??!?!?!??! How? Why me???? What?!?!?! 

This year has been more work, stress, excitement than I could have ever imagined.
But, all so soooo worth it.
.
.
.

My co-workers, family and friends were so sweet to me. Texting, flowers, champagne, cards, emails and more congratulating me on my first year. Broken record, but I'm seriously such a lucky girl.

My day was perfect. 

But, it just kept getting better....

I was surprised today with something so insanely #major, and completely unexpected, it's still hard for me to even type on this blog post.

Here it goes...

Today I was given a vacation to Motu Teta, an all-inclusive, private island resort in Tahiti. I leave next month. I cannot believe it. And, I cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AND, as if that wasn't enough....

The girls got me the most beautiful, Tiffany's infinity necklace (knowing exactly how sentimental gifts get me every time). They explained that this day marked the first year, but K. Sutherland PR was forever.... They even noted that that infinity symbol was the number 8 on it's side... I'm a sucka for details like this; they know me so well.

And again, I'm so lucky. 

It was such an amazing day, and I'm so grateful for everything and everyone in my life.

Here's to many more amazing years to come!

love, kerry

Superbowl FUNday

So, the game didn't end the way we would have liked....

But, my party was a hit. And to be honest, I really don't care too much about football anyway. Sure, it would have been nice if the 49ers had won, but really organizing a party was more exciting to me.

Anyway, since our team's superstar QB, Colin Kaepernick, is a fellow University of Nevada alum- naturally, he was the inspiration for the party.

I had spirit flowers, and a ginormous niner-red balloon.

Audrey loved it. 




I served a variety of KAPetiziers including:


Touchdown Tots.





A Cheese PLAYS.






A delightful KAPrese Salad.

And, my darling Stephanie brought the KAPcakes. 


Yummy!




Sure, it would have been nice to win the game... But, I scored BIG with the party.


love, kerry
