This ultra lovely @twistedwillowflowers setting has my Monday feeling like:

SAME, Bob. Same......

"Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. "

- Bob Marley

Cooler temperatures prevail today, and since you can finally stop and smell the roses without passing out from heat exhaustion, it has my design mind thinking......... Sometimes the most elegant touches for an event are the most simple in concept but meticulous in detail.
The creation of a crest or logo can permeate every facet of the reception, however something as gorgeous as flowers expertly wrapped in paper that matches your decor.
It's all in the details, details, details....

We truly enjoyed meeting his radiant company president, Reuben Bell, too! Bottom Left: Warm-hearted and fascinating, fabrication innovator and speaker Rob Barber of ATOMIC and Bottom Right: Thought-provoking technology futurist and General Session speaker, Pablos Holman. And a huge shout-out to all of these engaging speakers and exhibitors we had the extremely good fortune to learn from and meet: Bobby Dutton of GrooveBoston / GBM6, Jessica Claar of Degy Booking, Scott Frankel of Animatic Media, Christie Osborne Mountain Side Media, Trish Simitakis of Trish Star Events and Cassie Sandau of Cirque Entertainment. Lastly, congratulations to our amazing, unstoppable friend, Chris Evan Taylor of Chris Evans Events & Catering on his impactful, debut keynote! We were so thrilled to witness this! We truly look forward to staying in touch with all of these impressive catering and events industry leaders, and can't wait for next year's conference in Anaheim! #curatedentertainment #thespecialevent #catersource #eventprofs
