2011 Thoughts & Fav’s {A Year in a Life of an Event Planner}

I’ve always wondered what is the best way to start an “end of the year” blog post and what exactly do you say?  I recall a few months ago I couldn’t wait for 2011 to go away. It was not shaping up to end on a high note.

I had dinner with my beautiful, insightful and talented friend Sigi Farkash (owner of Design by SIG) who bluntly and clearly said to me. “Your diamond is right in front of you. sometimes you just need to dig deeper  and invest more effort to see it and hold it in your hand.” She had some other descriptives which we will not go into, but the point is — she was right.

So after that evening, I had that conversation twirling in my mind for a few weeks which lead me to think about what I would like to be doing in 2012?  And than that call came. So I am ending my 2011 on a very high note as I joined the Israeli Leadership Council (ILC) family in the past two weeks to oversee  and manage a huge event “Celebrate Israel” – A community-wide event celebrating Israel’s 64th Independence Day which you will hear about from me in various forms in the next 4 months. I am humbled and honored to be in the presence of such an amazing group of people. Truly.

So 2011 —- I had a great year, and enjoyed being a wedding planner for so many happy couples. I’ve learned that not all amazing weddings have to be in Los Angeles! I actually knew that — but really enjoyed being a part of Gladys & Peter’s wedding in Temecula. It was so romantic and just — perfect.

I have so many unforgetable moments from this year, it’s hard to summerize it in words… but I’ve been told that photos help to do so many times. Below are some (but not all) of the events that I take with me this year as the most memorable ones.

I am thankful for all that I do, greatful to my family and friends that love me and are always there for me. Althought 2011 is ending on a high point, honestly goodbye 2011 and hello 2012. Can’t wait to see what this years has to offer. BRING IT ON.
