Chandeliers and Martinelli’s. Soft pastels and romantic florals. Hair pieces and mustaches. All instrumental elements to an enjoyable Sunday brunch celebrating the birthday of a dear friend’s niece. I’m sucker for detailed decor, in interior design and event planning, and I even have Pinterest boards dedicated solely to egg-white crown moldings and burlap table linings. Naturally, I had an absolute ball at a party that paid such close attention to detail.
Detailed down to the tee best describes Cindy, the business woman behind the madness. As a third-party witness, I really believe she’s found her niche in event planning. Her story is inspiring because it is exemplary of not only trying, but trying and trying again. Trying until you find a way, until you discover your calling, until you succeed. And even then, turning something great into something greater.
Surrounded by ambition, talent, and brilliance, I know I am in good company. Even this blog is a testament to the fact that passion breeds passion; it leads to collaboration, excellence, and ultimately, success. In this crazy, tumultuous, seminal, and defining decade known as our twenty-something’s, I can’t wait to see the greatness that is destined to come. The pictures below are living proof that work and passion can be one and the same – something I soon hope to find in myself.
