Most event professionals will tell you that the best part of our jobs is that we get to be with people during some of the most important moments of their lives and that we get to help people capture those moments memories. That is absolutely true. What is also absolutely true is that it is so easy to forget and to sweat the details a little too much. Sometimes, I just need something to ground me, to be humbled by the complete honor it is that people allow me to help them commemorate such big occasions. Sometimes, that's seeing a bride walk down the aisle and sometimes that is watching people reunite for the first time in years at a celebration. This past weekend, it was the honor of getting to help celebrate a new little one that in the life of one of my friends!
Hosted in my very own backyard, we threw an adventure themed baby shower appropriate for the personalities of our friends. Because I am me, everything had to on theme. I brought some of our furniture outside for a loungy feel and kept the menu light with trail snacks. While it was fun to honor my friend by using a skill set that I don't always get to flex in my personal life, it was even more fun to watch all the beautiful women in her life rally around her in the atmosphere I created.
