Okay, here goes. Ten years ago, I started a blog. I was a junior in college, 20, extremely interested in myself. I didn't use punctuation and rarely used capitalization. That blog served one very specific purpose: to talk about myself. I kept that blog for about six years. After becoming increasingly disinterested in my content, I would forget to post regularly, which led to a drop in site traffic, and eventually, a drop in posts.
Skip forward to early 2013. My cousin, Christabel, asked me to be her Mistress of Ceremonies for her wedding day. Now, my mother has probably coordinated nearly two dozen weddings in my lifetime. Many times, I have helped her, watched her, and even been a victim of her direction. I always knew I would enjoy playing the role of wedding coordinator. Christabel gave me that chance. Then another friend trusted me with her wedding day.
So how does one start up a career from thin air? I'm still trying to figure that out. I have such an amazing support system, and everyone has been so encouraging to me.
It is with great pleasure (and intense fear) that I begin a new journey in my life. Planning weddings, events, parties, etc. has been something I've wanted to do for a long time. So here I am. In addition to keeping a blog, Facebook page and Instagram will be where I share parts of my life and my business. I cannot promise I will be a Monday-Friday blogger, at least, I don't intend to be. I still have a full-time job, a demanding and fulfilling church ministry, and a husband who works harder than anyone I know.
I wanted to start this five years ago. Imagine what will happen if I wait another five years. Thank you for starting this journey with me.
