I am afraid of two very real things in this world: sharks and speaking. It's rare that something I am terrified of keeps me from moving forward and growing, but these two things have done a pretty good job at making sure I don't get near either ... in fact me and the ocean rarely mix. A few months ago I was asked by Jeannie Savage of Details Details Wedding and Event Planning to come speak at a Love Luxe Life luncheon in Orange County. The idea scared me like you wouldn't believe, but there was something stronger pulling at me: an opportunity to meet and have lunch with wedding professionals I have LOVED and been a fan of for YEARS!!! I knew that even my huge fear of speaking couldn't stop me - so on Wednesday of this last week me and one of my best friends, Kimberly of Alante Photography, boarded a plan that headed down to the OC.
The trip was AMAZING - and I learned that speaking to a group is not my enemy. I felt so empowered up there while I was speaking - so savvy - so strong!! It was one of the biggest highs I've ever felt and I got to meet the most amazing people. Kimberly, being a kick-ass photographer, documented our trip. We were so lucky to be able to stay at The Resort at Pelican Hill ... below are some clicks from our time there!
Pssssst ... Kim, am I really on my phone **this** much!!??? LOL
