The Girl Who Decided to GO FOR IT!


As I was idly scrolling through Pinterest with one eye open this morning, I came across a "pin"that spoke to me:


This caused me to open both eyes and sit right up in bed because it reminded me that today, July 19th 2017 marks the official year that I, well, went for IT!

On this day last year I assisted in my last appointments as Bridal Director at Oscar de la Renta, blew out candles on some delicious treats from Sweet Lady Jane (a notorious Melrose Place "cheat day" location!) and had a tearful goodbye with one of the most amazing sales teams I have ever worked with.

I thought to myself, holy sh*t I am doing this thing! I was terrified, excited, slightly nauseous, and most of all: READY

I had spent the last several months before putting in my 2 weeks notice working what felt like two full-time jobs. I worked my 9-6 and then came home and was either on the computer or off to a late night meeting, balancing 'Day Of' timelines and wedding details for my couples. Needless to say I was exhausted and felt split in two, but dammit, I was READY.

This year has brought me so much joy, true and beautiful friendships, challenges, and one-of-a-kind adventure. I would do it all over again if given the opportunity.

To me, I am the girl who decided to go for it, and that is perfectly fine with me!
