Over the next several weeks I want to shed a bit more light onto who I am as an event planner and designer. While I love beautiful things and well executed events, I also have many layers to what makes me, me.
For starters...Hi! My name is Aretha and I've been planning and designing events for almost 10 years now. I started young, so don't start thinking of me as an old woman. I'm relishing in my early thirties and don't want to rush one day of this joyous ride.
In addition to starting in the planning world early, I also started my family at a young age with the birth of my daughter. She is now 14 years old and navigating her first year of high school, quite sucessfully I might add. She is one of two lights of my life. She keeps me on my toes with her sometimes teenager antics, but I love every second because she is an amazing person - smart, kind, athletic and beautiful.
The other light of my life and foundation to everything is my amazing husband. He is strength everyday and his love continues to be awe inspiring. It was him that inspired me to turn what was once a "side project" into An Adams Original. Since the day we had the serious talk about me really diving head first into what I love so much, I haven't looked back and he's been supportive and encouraging every step of the way.
Knowing how much my husband and daughter mean to me, is to get a glimpse into who I am. My family is the most important thing to me. They are the most beautiful things in my life; more beautiful than the most georgously decorated wedding guest table (and, I have some georgous creations, lol).
More to come next week...
