Corporate and Special Event Planning

Full Circle Moment

Full Circle Moment

You know those times that something happens out of the blue and you positively think, is this really happening?  Now that is a full circle moment.  I experienced just that on Saturday night.  Now some background to fill you in.

When I was 16 and got my driver’s license I applied for a job at a B&B that hosted weddings and events, yes even then I was drawn to this as a profession.  I was obsessed about this venue, thought then when I “grew” up that would be my dream job, own a cute B&B, entertain and spoil other people.  I even did a school project on that dream job and modelled it after this venue.

So on Thursday evening I get a call from a new client asking if we could provide service staff for a fundraising event on Saturday night, as I went through her details I realized it was at this venue that I had long ago obsessed about!

It was short notice and I was worried about the availability of our staff, but I had one response and decided it was best that I was the second staff she required.  It meant I would finally get to work in this space 🙂  As no I did not get the job when I was 16! Better late than never.

The group was an absolute delight to work with, and we look forward to working with the host on future projects.

I still think about owning a B&B someday…guess we will see what happens, and how the circle widens.
