life, stuff, and crazy business

24 Sep

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve been here!  Between designing a fabulously awesome wedding reception for this weekend to brainstorming my brand and deciding what I want the most to researching and learning so much about blog design, I’ve been consciously neglecting writing.  Sorry to leave you hanging!  I’m so happy to have everyone who’s visited despite my slacking off!  I really appreciate you!

So, if you follow my Instagram (and I highly suggest you do–especially this weekend as I’ll be posting images from the party!), you may have seen a little of what I’ve been up to.  I love every bit of it!  Wedding design is my jam, guys.  Happy Tags for thank you favors--theSpunkySapphire.wordpress.comLove banner for dessert table--theSpunkySapphire.wordpress.com

Make sure you check the sneak peeks out this weekend to see how it all comes together.  I’m so excited to bring the image in my head to life!

In addition to wedding design, I’ve been redesigning this little blog and really honing in on what I want to be about, etc.  Seriously?  This takes time.  It’s a safe bet to assume I’m learning patience.  Weird that this is what it took!  I honestly had no idea how much actually goes into a successful, gorgeously designed webpage/blog!  I mean, I knew it was time-consuming and a labor of love, but wow!  This is intense.

With that and focusing on making a brand I’m proud of, I’m getting new photos of myself for it tomorrow!  I’m really excited to get those heels immortalized in photos!  I’m a shoe fiend and don’t get to wear fun ones very often except on weekends, so this should be good.

Anyway, I’ll wrap up this ramble, but just wanted to throw it out there that life is amazingly crazy and I’ve been working hard behind the scenes on a lot of things that will very soon be out here for you all to see.  Until then, I really appreciate your presence here and can’t wait to bring you more amazing content to inspire as well as a new look!

standing in the rain; wedding planning--theSpunkySapphire.wordpress.comThat was me on Saturday, soaked from the knees down as the rain was drizzling sideways.   This, my friends, is the glamorous life of a wedding planner.  I love it.  This is when I remembered why I always, always bring a second outfit and was so thankful I had stuck with my gut that morning.   It was such an amazing experience to be working as part of the Bride’s Butler team and I got to meet two of my favorite photographers.  Day made, in my book.  

I actually can’t believe we’re in the full swing of September.  Last week was nutty around here, but delightfully so, and it was fabulous to be crazy busy for a week.

This week, I’m looking forward to focusing on a few things: new blog headshots: (thinking this would be a fabulous prop),

Well, I’m off to a successful start so far, and looking forward to a successful week.  Note to all of us, courtesy of someone VERY close to me: “There’s something positive in everything, Anna.  Always look for it.”  Man, I love that guy.  Happy Monday!
