No, not THAT first time, silly. My first time blogging. Geez.
I recently mentioned over on Facebook and Instagram that I had professional headshots done in November (and now on my About page) after being hounded about the fact that there weren't any photos of me on my website (other than ones from my wedding). My decision to finally add a blog to my website is a result of similar peer pressure and also the need for a forum to post thoughts and pictures that just really don't belong elsewhere on my site.
So welcome to my first blog post! In early January, I participated in the Lovesick Expo in Brooklyn, a wedding show that prides itself on defying the mainstream. The show is hosted by Lovesick Inc. and Offbeat Bride and caters to couples who are looking for edgier, non-traditional wedding vendors. Perfect place for me, right? I had a wonderful time, met some lovely couples, and made some new vendor friends. One of my favorite ladies, Mikkel of Mikkel Paige Photography, came by and snagged some photos of my super cute booth. HUGE thanks to some other killer ladies, Juli of Juli Vaughn Designs, who helped come up with the concept for my booth and made my super cute TV (I call it my Muppet TV because of the colors and felt dials), Tracy of Gubba Gumma, who designed my backdrop, and Min of Swallow My Words, who made my dreams come true by creating Color Pop Events custom macarons. Overall, the Lovesick Expo was a fabulous event and I look forward to attending next year!
