With that being said, I apologize for my absence over the last couple of weeks. To say life and work has been crazy is an understatement. To catch you all up, I thought I would give you all a quick recap on what you've missed!
This weekend, my family and I celebrated my beautiful nieces' 2nd birthday then I wrapped up yet another "last" of my college career - homecoming. I was able to support my little sister in my sorority throughout her campaign for homecoming queen which was such a fun experience!
In addition to Homecoming weekend, my school also celebrated their annual fundraising gala, Emerald Ball. This year was extra special with the help of one of our beautiful and talented Alumna, Carrie Underwood, who performed an acoustic set of her greatest hits for guests. Typically this gala is for faculty/staff and alumni of the university, however for this special occasion, 130 students were drawn and given the opportunity to attend this one-of-a-kind concert. As someone who has literally NEVER won a drawing in her life, you can imagine my surprise when I was chosen! Of course, Carrie was absolutely wonderful and sounded flawless. It was such an honor and blessing to be able to see her performance not only because she is a Grammy Award winning artist, she is also an alumna of my university and sorority sister!
I finally finished the wedding invitations for my clients and was able to show them the finished product, and they loved them! Seeing smiles on clients faces, all of my hard work pays off and I instantly forget about the stress that can come along with it. As for their big day, the countdown has begun with less than a month till The Great Gatsby extravaganza! Wish me luck!
