One of my favorite things about Browngiving is that for many of us, it's bridged the gap between college and young adulthood. Every year, Browngiving is a little different, whether we were shifting from Claflin Hall to someone's new apartment, or from Boston to New York City, or whether there were simply new roommates in our three-year host apartment in Brooklyn.
This morning I'm thinking back on the previous four years of Browngiving, and from now until Friday, II'll have a photo to share with you from each Browngiving so far. Today's photo, taken in Claflin Hall in November 2007, features is the original Browngiving spread. My mom had recently bought me that tablecloth (really, a flat sheet from the Urban Outfitters Bargain Basement in Cambridge), and Jordan and I decided that this makeshift tablecloth was all the excuse we needed to put on the first Browngiving.
The brown sheet has since been lost to history, but when one of you wrote in to say "I feel like we've really grown up, from that first Browngiving eaten on the beer pong table," I had to agree. (Although even this year, we are still desperate for extra table space. Let me know if you can help!)
Look for the Browngiving 2008 shot tomorrow.
