Every year I debate whether or not I should write this post, and every year I write one, because I truly believe that if we don’t look back, we can’t fully move forward, and also because I feel that it’s important to share the heart and the personality behind this company, not just all the […]

I look forward more to my business birthday than my actual birthday. I love that May 2nd serves as a marker for another year of putting one foot in front of the other and making things happen in my life. Every year is filled with lessons, growth, laughter, and more reassurance that this is the […]

2 years. 2 whole years ago, I jumped unexpectedly into being self employed FULL TIME. CRAZY. I was working a 40 hours a week, direct deposited pay check every other week position. I cried when I got my job at the company I worked for, I was so happy that I had security and safety, […]

I simply can’t believe it. Meaningful Moments Events is 3!  Tuesday, May 2nd marked the 3rd year since I registered the LLC to start the business I never thought would really be a thing. The whole time I thought that maybe something would come of it, one or two weddings a year and maybe some […]

365 days as a self employed boss lady. Planning weddings, designing, dreaming, and sometimes freaking the heck out. It’s an interesting thing to reflect on and I thought I would share some of the things I’ve learned over the last trip around the sun.  1) I will never be a “paperless” operation. When I first became […]

I haven’t shared this with anyone.  A year ago…….. I worked an 8-5 that was ok. It wasn’t great, there had been some situations that made it an incredibly stressful and toxic environment that was inescapable. I did not feel any sense of pride. Getting screamed at on the phone 8 hours a day is […]
