What's Goin' On???

One of my all-time favorite songs by Marvin Gaye - I love it! So I think it's only fitting that I chose it for the title of my first blog entry of 2008...since a lot of you have been asking me the same question!!! I know that I've been absent for a minute, but hey...things have been uber-hectic around here!!!

We started off the year in Atlanta, Georgia at The Special Event Tradeshow and Conference - simply a MUST for any professional in the event planning industry! So much to do, so many new networking connections, tons of beautifully exciting new products and tools.. AND I was teaching a workshop at the conference! Judging from the response I received from my participants - the topic matter was on point and what they needed, which is just the way I like it!! I hope to be teaching again at the 2009 conference in sunny San Diego - I will keep you posted!!

After flying back in from Atlanta - I was off again, this time to the city of Brotherly (and now, Sisterly) Love..Philadelphia, PA.!! I was honored to be the guest speaker at a workshop for wedding planning professionals entitled "Designed For Success", given by my colleague, Deidre Gray. The workshop was great - and along with my fellow presenters Isis Petrie of POSH Events, LLC., Randi Martin of Always Fabulous Events, Debbie Wallace of Elegant Affairs LLC, and of course, the event's producer - Deidre Gray of Always A Positive Image, LLC. - I'm glad that we were able to give salient advice and excellent information to the ladies and gentleman present (yes - there was one guy in the house!!).

So now I am back home in Baltimore for a wee bit - but it's still busy nonetheless! I am working with some great couples and planning a few memorable celebrations....I promise to be a good girl this year and blog hold me to it!
