Introduction to me!
So I have finally taken the blogging bite. Not blogging about my hobby photography or daytime job as a Silicon Valley Recruiter or even really about being a mom…. I am going to blog about me… The Over-The-Top, misunderstood me – who happens to now be an Over-The-Top-Momma… especially when it comes to planning..and specifically – Party Planning.
Now. Party Planning is a lot like Photography – Everyone thinks they can do it! Start a business and be successful and their ideas are the very very very best and people will pay them lots of money to plan a party and spend their money 🙂 I would take the job if anyone is offering….. BUT….
I do it (along with photography) because I obsess LOVE it and the joy and reaction that the small details can often bring.
One of the things that you should know about me, and yes, it even started long before I ever became a mom. I LOVE making people smile! I enjoy putting special details into gifts, meals, cards, whatever. This is what I do. I think I get more of an adrenaline rush from creating the perfect gift ensemble than I do from the gym.. not that I even know what the inside looks like these days…. I have sometimes, okay, often have been told that I go OVER-THE-TOP…..and I guess.. This is me agreeing with “them”… whomever “them” are – or – is.. nothing sounds correct.
So, if you find my little corner of internet space – Please say Hi… and I will be using this space to share my previous party photos and ideas and the inspiration and planning process for whatever party or occasion is up next.
I will do a quick look back at my kids birthday parties and then move forward..because I just so happen to be in the middle of planning a rather spectacular SuperHero 4th Birthday Bash for my eldest and amazing son.
