I have the best friends in the whole world. Some of them have recently come into my life for one reason or another. Some because of this company, some through our girls sports and some just because they rock. And others have been in my life forever. Ok not forever but it feels like it….in a good way of course. I have one friend in particular that I cherish. She has been my friend since I moved to Kemptville in grade 7…only a couple of years ago…bahhaaahhhaa!!! Ok many moons ago. She is my favourite kind of friend. The kind of friend that we can go weeks without talking and then get together and talk as if we saw each other yesterday. And the kind of friend who just seems to know when I need her to call.
Well this dear friend of mine has been trying to get pregnant for as long as I can remember and when she had finally decided to give up…bam! There it was. Baby on the way! Well I decided I wanted to throw her a baby shower. I teamed up with her mom, her sister-in-law and another BFF and we threw her a gorgeous shower. I love that with this company I can use my amazing contacts to make wonderful things happen for the most important people in my life.

It takes a long time to build something from scratch. LGBTQ + Wedding Show - Love is Proud started four years ago. The first year was good, attendance, interest in the event from area services and business, media. The second year was challenging, weather and show location impacted attendance at the event. This year was amazing! In order to make things work like you dreamed they would you have to be willing to listen, learn and make changes until you get the chemistry just right. We did it this year! All the pieces came together just like we have always dreamed it would. www.itmevents.ca/?portfolio=love-is-proud-2018... See MoreSee Less
