Apparently I’m not good at blogging while traveling. Woops. Well I’m back home and catching up after an amazing (and much needed) 2 and a half-week vacation. The first week and a half was spent on a European cruise with Troy and two other couples that we’re good friends with, and the latter part of the vacation was spent visiting with my in-laws in New England AND THEN from there we flew to San Diego to celebrate the wedding of my good friend from SCU. I know, crazy, right? So fun though and once I edit my pictures I’ll be sure to share.
So that’s the reason I’ve been so MIA the last few weeks. Now onto some exciting news….
I started this blog in an attempt to corral my creative endeavors and to journal my exploration of how I can continue to do the things that I really enjoy doing. As a kid I was always rearranging my room, creating furniture for my dolls, drawing, and sewing doll clothes. Clearly I was creative from the start and very crafty . But somehow my passion for creativity got pushed to the side as I went on to do other things. Then I discovered the world of decorating blogs, and once I planned and designed my own DIY wedding, I knew I couldn’t stop there.
To keep it going, I decided to blog, continue to do DIY projects around the home, learn some new skills, and talk to other creative professionals. After talking with my good friend Margie about my plan, she suggested that I meet her friend PJ who is SUPER creative and has been doing visual displays for Anthropologie and Bloomingdales for the past few years (so cool, right?!). A friend of Margie’s is a friend of mine, and I knew I wanted to pick her brain, so back in May we got together for coffee.
Well about three hours later, we left the coffee shop with a decision to partner together on a new venture doing event design and coordination – Going Lovely. This all happened right before I left for India for a work trip and everything has been falling into place since. Amidst my travels we’ve been busy working away on updating our website (huge thanks to Sarah Hoag for the AMAZING pictures!), putting together our business plan and planning and designing 4 weddings taking place from August- November. We’ve also signed up for floral design classes together which start at the beginning of September!
So there you have it. Amazing how things just fall into place sometimes. Check out our website, Like our Page and spread the word if you know of anyone in need of event design or coordination! So excited to see what’s to come and I’ll keep everyone posted along the way!
