As we wrap up the month of February it is important for me to share this blog.
If anyone had told me during those first few months after I started Detailed Engagements that 7 short years later I would be living my dream and working with the best clients & vendors in the world I would have been in awe. I started writing this anniversary blog about 10 times this month. Each time I started I turned the music down in the office and stare at the page. Every time I was overcome with emotion thinking how far I have come and the journey I have taken to get here. Each time I started writing I began thinking about all of the amazing weddings & events throughout these 7 years. This month I have had the pleasure of meeting with 6 potential new interns for Detailed Engagements. Their excitement was contagious and their enthusiasm for this industry that I call home was palpable. We talked about their dreams, their goals and how DE may fit into those. We talked about what I do, where I came from and how I started this business and the journey it has taken to get here today. It seemed fitting that today after these meetings have wrapped that I finish writing this blog and share it with you.
I love what I do. Simply put every day I walk in to my office I feel like I am the luckiest person in the world. Detailed Engagements and my role as the owner and lead wedding & event planner is not simply a job to me- it is my life. My passion. And I am so incredibly lucky and thankful to live my dream each and every day.
Everyone who knows me knows that I am not usually the emotional type but this year is different. Thank you so much to everyone who has believed in me, supported me and allowed myself and Detailed Engagements to be part of your weddings & events throughout the years.Thank you to my friends and family who have been there every step along the way. You all mean more to me than I will ever be able to express but as I celebrate the 7th anniversary for Detailed Engagements I promise you that I will continue to walk into my office every day thankful for what you all allow me to do. Big things are in the works for Detailed Engagements. This 'little' business I started in a spare bedroom in my parent's house 7 years ago with little more than a dream and a won't-quit attitude is taking me places I never dreamt of. I promise to make this year, our 7th year in business, even better than all of the rest. I promise to continue to make each and every client feel like they are part of our DE family.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of you who have trusted in me through the years and chose to work with Detailed Engagements. You have helped to make me who I am today and for that I truly thank you. I have spent a great deal of time this month reflecting on the past 7 years and I have just had a smile on my face thinking of it all. I am one lucky girl and I will never forget that. I have the best job in the world.
Cheers to you my friends!
