I have wanted to enter the blogging world for some time now but haven't had the courage to do it.. until now! Maybe it's that Midwest charm that has finally given me the confidence to expand my horizons and share a little of myself to an audience broader than my mom and my boyfriend (haha I'm lucky they still love me).
Anyway.. for anyone who doesn't know me, I'm Courtney, a wedding planner from San Francisco who just made the move to good ol' Oklahoma City. I left the fabulous San Francisco life behind to start a new adventure with my 9 year (going on 10...CRAZY!) boyfriend Kellen. I have been here in OKC for almost 3 months and let me tell ya, it has been quite a change. Pros and cons of course - but all around a good change.
In San Francisco I worked with a fabulous wedding planner Yelena, who in the end has become one of my closest friends. Many people gasp at the thought of me leaving a life as a "wedding planner in San Francisco" to move to Oklahoma.. with no job.. but I welcome any change with open arms. I'm still young right?
Being here in OKC, and not right in the middle of a wedding planning frenzy in San Francisco, has really made me realize how much I need some sort of creative outlet which leads me to this blog. In this blog journey I hope to share my experiences in life, try fun DIY projects, and to continue my wedding planning past by sharing tips, tricks, and projects that I am working on :) I hope you all stay tuned and help me build this blog together with your support!
For now here's a snapshot of me...
