What is your typical day like?
I begin my day with meditation and then off to the races. I post one wedding picture to my IG account while I am brushing my teeth. I get the kiddo and hubs ready for school and work, then send them on their merry way.
After that, I have time for a workout which keeps me sane. Then I am in my office until 3 pm, reviewing charts and timelines, scheduling and completing client wedding consultations, balancing books, and designing weddings.

I adore spending time with my family. My
