I have been the worst blogger ever lately, and for that I am so sorry! I have been very busy over here and really miss blogging! I'm getting back to it, promise!
I wanted to follow up on THIS post about going to the Jose Villa party solo. It was AMAZING! Seriously, I came home feeling like I could take over the world. On my way there, I felt nauseous from nerves but made a commitment to myself that I would meet and talk to at least five strangers. I did that. I also laughed a lot. And met Jose Villa. And Jill Le Fleur. I challenged myself and I came out better for it! Everyone was so nice and let me just say that the wedding industry folks are much different than the people from THIS industry. They are welcoming, supportive, interested and joyful. I couldn't be happier with my new career and all of the possibilities that it holds for me.
In other news, last week was a big week for me. I not only booked my tenth wedding (which was my personal goal for 2011!) but also booked a client for my full-service package!! I am over the moon with excitement that someone wants to hire me as so much more than their Day-of-Coordinator.
Also, I am planning a monster of a baby shower. My boss, business partner, mentor and dear friend is having a baby at the end of June and I'm planning her baby shower. No pressure, right? She's only the most fabulous event planner and most chic woman I know. No pressure at all. I wish I could share all of my ideas with you, but I'm trying to keep it under wraps. Very soon, I'll be able to share the whole thing and my inspiration board for it!
How visually lame is this WW post? How about I share a inspiration board that I just finished up for a client? She is getting married at an aquarium in San Diego and threw out the idea of liking rustic and nautical. I was so excited, because here on the west coast we rarely get the chance to do a nautical wedding. I love this board so much, there is something about nautical weddings that just make me swoon. I hope this couple loves their "tie the knot" board. I hope you do too!
