…When a Show is Actually a Party!

Last night I had that feeling of being tired, in the most positive way. It was a long day. Twelve hours for a show day that included loading up, driving, setting up, talking with people about my new wedding line, packing up, driving home and crashing! All in 4 inch heels. I should also mention that there was free alcohol, a burlesque show and a great band. The Lovesick Expo was extremely well produced by a group of some of the nicest people I have ever met. They are very selective about the cities in which they bring the event and we are so fortunate that for the first time they took a chance on Atlanta! We exceeded their expectations for attendance as well as coolness. They are planning to be back next year. And even if you have no wedding plans, you would have a great time at this event.

It’s also inspiring to be around people who are crazy in love and love talking about it, making plans and just smiling at each other. A lot. Love is important. What I love thinking about is that even when those butterflies fade or their partner has irritated them beyond belief again, they will look at this ring and remember. Remember why they did this in the first place. Remember all of the things they love about this person. Remember that love is so much more than the way you feel in one moment.

I am happy with my new wedding collection. The ideas keep coming, so I know it will continue to evolve. I think what I feel best about is setting a ridiculous goal and then actually meeting it. Three weeks ago I thought getting things together enough to do this show was unlikely. (I don’t like the word impossible, but it was highly unlikely.) With a lot of help I was able to make it happen. I was fortunate to have David focusing on the marketing aspects so that I could focus on designing and creating jewelry while still keeping up with orders.

Thank you to everyone who came out for Lovesick. I hope you had as much fun as we did. I look forward to working with you and making special pieces customized to celebrate your unique style and love.
