February 2011 Recap
Dear Fans, friends and followers ~ February was a rough start for me personally; my Grandma (who raised me since I was a child) passed on February 3rd. It was with a heavy heart that I started back in the swing of things. There was a wedding I was hired to coordinate on the February 5th, that fortunately I was able to have another Planner I am close with stand in my place. I missed several events, meetings and to-do’s, but I am slowly but surely trying to get things back on track. I want to thank all of my event professionals that reached out with kind words during this difficult time, this is really when you see how supportive we all are of each-other.
