I am a mother of a three year old little girl who is very spunky! I am also happily married for the past 5 years and couldn't ask for anything better. One day at my full time job, I was in a dead-end job and decided that this is not what I wanted to do! I stayed at my job for a while longer and then got laid off due to the economy. It was actually a blessing in disguise. I told my husband I wanted to start my own event planning business so I can help others have memorable events!
