Featured on Stylish Planner!

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

You know you haven’t been updating your blog enough when your mom calls to tell you she was looking at her Blogroll and noticed you hadn’t updated in a really long time.  I have a good excuse – between my wonderful clients, Cakes for a Cause and getting ready for this baby, I have also been working on blogs for other people!

stylishplannerToday, I was featured on The Stylish Planner.  The lovely Jeannine gives a good idea of how we met (and yes, the story is a long, but funny one) and we are Twitter friends as well.  She asked me to talk a little about managing pregnancy while maintaining your style and I was completely flattered!

And if you haven’t put two and two together – I am pregnant with Ellie’s little sister and will be delivering any day.  I will be on maternity leave for about a month once that happens but still checking my email and voicemail from time to time.  I look forward to introducing the newest addition to our family very soon!

Thanks to Jeannine for the opportunity to share my maternity tips with your readers!

Featured on Sage Wedding Pros!

I know the mastermind behind Sage Wedding Pros, Michelle Loretta, through Twitter and have always loved reading her blog – it is full of great information for wedding professionals of all kinds.  When Michelle emailed me and asked me to contribute to a series for the new vendors in the industry – I was thrilled!  She asked me for the top ten things that I wanted new planners to know – the things that no one tells you when you are first starting out.

I get SO MANY emails from girls who want to be planners and are looking for internships or part time positions with Emilie Duncan Event Planning or want advice on getting started.  Quite honestly, I get so many emails and phone calls that I don’t have time to answer all of them so the chance to get this kind of information out there was appealing to me.  Based on the comments, it hit a nerve with other planners both new and experienced – I hope that is opens some eyes and thanks again for Michelle for the opportunity!
