Well, if your question has been, “Why hasn’t she posted anything in a hundred years?”, my answer is, “What? Is it already July? Have I neglected my dearly beloved blog that long?” Truth is, it’s been a whirlwind of a summer. We’ve had the most wonderful weddings every weekend of the summer and I guess that we ran out of time. So, I will be posting them shortly. Check out the latest issue of Southern Bride Magazine for the “Birmingham” section of vintage cakes, etc. WONDERFUL VENDORS! We shot the layout at The Alabama Theater. Oh, what a beautiful place. Also, coming this fall, we’re going to be featured in another nationwide magazine. More on that soon.
After all the shameless bragging, let me just say this- I have been blessed by God so much in the past 6 months. I’ve studied and studied it, and I’m not sure how we’ve grown so much, so fast. It shouldn’t happen. I advertise in one place only- www.theknot.com. No magazine ads. Nothing. I have met some wonderful folks lately as well. Dana, of course, has my heart forever. She is my right hand woman. And to Alisa, Dianna, and Wes, I owe the greatest thanks. You are simply the best. It is unbelievable to me to see and know that you’re in the place that not only you want to be, but that God wants you to be. That’s a powerful thing.
The reason I say all of that above isn’t to brag (ok…some of it is ’cause I am pretty proud), to prove we’re crazy busy, or we’re whatever. The reason that I say the above is because you’re hearing it from somebody just like you- somebody who wants to take a big leap into the river, but is afraid that the river isn’t deep enough. Well, it is, so just go ahead and jump. Now, I’m not saying that it’s been easy. It hasn’t. I hate business. I really do. I hate people that compete because of insecurity. I hate people that make themselves out to be someone they’re not. I hate people that think they know whatever it is they think they know, when in reality, all they know is insecurity. But, what I do love are my clients. My folks that do have my back. My time I spend with each and every family. And the list goes on and on. The only thing I can compare the good and the bad of the business world to is like searching for a worm in a bushel of peas. It’s there, you know it is. You just have to find it, throw it out and move on for some good eatin’. And that’s where I am. Good eatin’. That’s where I want to be. Not too much, not too little. Just perfect.
We’ll be announcing some more things in the following weeks. I’m scared. Again. But I’m excited beyond belief too. But as one of my favorite people always says, “You miss 100% of the shots that you never take.” Thanks Lara Casey.
Will talk soon (like this afternoon when I have time to post some wonderful sessions and weddings).
