Hi all! Happy MAY! :)
As you may have read, April was pretty awful for me. I'm not going to rehash that here.... I'm just going to share the end of the month with you! :) The last two weeks were busy with more work, and lots and lots of prep for my first bridal show!
I finally made it there, I was scrambling down until 5 minutes after it started, and my mom was admitted to the hospital two days before the show.... but we somehow all made it. :)
We set up a little assembly line of bridal show projects in my mom's hospital room. We talked and shared ideas, they helped me put polka dots on my business cards, punch out hearts in my color samples... etc. While I finished designing a few more samples.
We pulled very late nights, my mom got to go home and is feeling SO much better! I was near tears so many times, but there wasn't time to cry, just time to keep going! Somehow, with everyone's help... I made it there.
And it was so great. :)
As soon as the brides started rolling in I was in my element, in my booth, chatting away with sweet new people. I was having the best time sharing invitations with attendees and hearing about their unique ideas for their weddings.
I left with an overwhelming ache in my legs (heels the first 3 hours was an awful idea), and gratefulness in my heart.
Thank you to everyone who came to the show, who liked my social media accounts, who punched out hearts, dotted dots, carried things, ironed my curtain backdrops, picked up Chipotle and brought it to us for lunch, let us take over their tables and floors... ordered a fabulous custom sign for me, and more. I could not have done it without you.
I hope to do more shows in the future, thanks for helping me figure this first one out family. :)
