I was nominated by Erika at That’s What An Anxious Mom Said to participate in a new challenge — the #MyFirstPostRevisited challenge.
My first post was in December 2014. I was beyond a blogging newbie, but needed to share info and I needed a break from Facebook. Here’s my more than obvious first blog post. Feel free to click here or just read below:
Welcome to my first blog posting. Obviously, we need to start from the beginning. I will try to keep it interesting, so you’ll want to keep coming back and check to see what is happening here.
Some topics I’ll be covering are:
- Homeopathic Health Care
- Essential Oils
- Military Support
If there’s something you’re interested in seeing on this blog, please let me know. After all, if no one is interested in what I have to say, then there’s no real reason to have a blog. Right?
Well, the first post is done. We are on our way. 2015 here we come!

I can’t believe it’s been over two years since I started this little project. I know there has been laughter, tears and frustration, but that’s life, right? Thanks for everyone who’s read at least one thing I’ve had to say and I must be doing something right because I’m still gaining followers. That or people are just as twisted as me and they like the company. Please don’t feel the need to clarify which you are. I’m just happy you’re still with me. 🙂
Here we come to the rules:
- No cheating. (It must be your first post. Not your second post, not one you love…first post only.)
- Link back to the person who tagged you (thank them if you feel like it or, if not, curse them with a plague of ladybugs).
- Copy and paste your old post into a new post or reblog your own bad self. (Either way is fine but NO editing.)
- Put the hashtag #MyFirstPostRevisited in your title.
- Tag five other bloggers to take up this challenge.
- Notify your tags in the comment section of their blog (don’t just hope they notice a pingback somewhere in their spam).
- Feel free to cut and paste the badge to use in your post.
- Include the rules in your post.
People who should also do this:
Just the other day I was longing to get back into wedding and event planning. I’m truly over the 9 to 5 job. Ok, so I work 7:00-4:00, but you get my meaning.
I responded to an ad looking for an unpaid intern for a wedding planner. While many people would balk at the term, “unpaid”, I don’t mind. It’s true, I’m a certified wedding planner. It’s true, I’ve planned and executed a few events. It’s true, I still have a lot I can learn.
The problem is, as I’ve been out of touch with the hospitality industry, I need a new “in’. I need to reconnect with vendors, venues and work events again. I am actually looking forward to seeing what this event planner is offering. I’m sure I can learn a lot from her. I like the fact she also used to work in the corporate world. She’s been the catering director for a prestigious San Francisco hotel and she’s now her own boss and running her own event company.
The position could eventually turn into a paid position as her assistant. As her business grows, so could the opportunities. I am also looking forward to her marketing concepts. It may seem small, but to stay in business, you need clients. Knowing how to get your name out and get people calling you is truly a skill. I’ve done so-so on my own, but I’d welcome assistance in this aspect as well.
Later this week, we will meet for coffee and discuss her vision for her company and how I may be of assistance to her. I can’t afford to leave my day job yet, however, who knows if this will be the door that opportunity is knocking on. All I know, is I am answering that door and looking forward to seeing what’s on the other side.

It’s back…the need to plan…being behind the scenes…making sure all the ducks stay in their proverbial row and that no one is the wiser when one of those ducks makes a dash for the lake!
I am missing my true calling…that of the Wedding Planner. Yes, there are people like me who enjoy logistics. People who grew up working in restaurants, catering, knowing what goes where, when to serve that and how to wrap it all up.
It’s knowing the “ins” and “outs”. That the appetizers will be gone by the time the wedding party arrives and a small plate set aside for the bride and groom will get them through until dinner service begins.
Taking pressure off the family so they don’t have to worry about details but can celebrate the new union taking place and join in the celebration.
When I planned “Getting Married – Casablanca Style”, I knew I was hooked. While I toil at an unfulfilling day job, which pays the bills, it’s not making me happy. Working on bring my dream into the realm of reality, supporting my family by planning parties, being allowed to share in a couple’s special day….that’s the ultimate job (for me anyway).
If you’re anywhere near Sacramento and have a party to plan, feel free to get in contact with me.
