Today is the final day of The Garter Girl’s Challenge BYOB (Blog Your Own Business) and it is about celebrating our success from this past year. This past year has been a turning point for Events to a T. In 2011 business was booming when I had my first child and I did not slow down one single bit, going to my first client meeting 8 days after giving birth! But things were different in 2014 when baby #2 was born. I now had a very active toddler and a newborn and it was not so easy to jump back in 8 days later. So for almost 2 solid years I took significantly fewer clients and smaller jobs and focused more on little people. Which is why it was both exciting and scary at the same time to be able to once again not only focus on Events to a T, but to actually leave town and those little people in order to do so!
I was thrilled to get the opportunity to plan a few events around the National Democratic Convention for a client I work for on a regular basis. The work was challenging and exciting and the atmosphere was charged. I have always loved working on large conventions. I love to be able to see this huge thing that so very many people have worked on for so long come together and happen. When I walk into those stadiums and ballrooms, it always gives me goosebumps.
I rarely get to share about these types of events. They aren’t like social events. There isn’t often a photographer who is going to send me beautiful pictures of my work afterward. Or the photos that are taken are not the shots that blog posts are made of. They may not always make for fancy blog posts and pretty pictures, but I am no less proud of the work.
