Hello, friends! It has been quite some time since this blog has gotten any love and that is about to change. Resolutions aren't only created at the beginning of the year, right? Well there are some changes to my business and I feel I'm at a pivoting point (as Ginny Au would say) in my career, which I will share more about in a later time. For now, this journal is finally going to get some attention as I try to be a little more transparent about my business and myself (scary!).
It's always interesting to me how phrases catch on and get popular. I'll be the first to admit I'm one of those people who tries to make "fetch" happen, but nobody else finds it cool... Well I decided to force one of phrases to stick and even turn it into my career.
So here's how this questionable word, "wedfully" manifested:
When I was planning my nuptials to my own prince charming Mr. A, I loved every single second of it. I had dreamed of putting those ideas and plans to life since I was little girl. I was one of those brides that sent out a weekly email to my bridesmaids giving them updates (I'm sure they loved reading every single detail). I always signed them with "Wedfully yours, Linda". That is really how I felt- full of wedding bliss! On our honeymoon trip, we decided that I needed to take this into a business because I just loved planning our wedding so much, I couldn't let my passion end there. So there in Charleston, A and I mapped out a business plan for Wedfully Yours and registered it when we got home.
Wedfully Yours stuck with me because I knew I wanted to share that same feeling I had during our engagement to other brides out there. It wasn't just about being any bride- it was this excitement of being a bride to the best man in my life and feeling this pure love. And today, as I'm 2 years into this "wedful" life, not only do I want my business to celebrate marriage, but I want to bring the focus of a pretty wedding to an intentional marriage. I want to love on my clients and cultivate authentic relationships.
There is a lot more to how this business got started, but that can be a whole post within itself. Let's just say there are many late nights, agonizing tantrums, and more vulnerability than I'd like to be comfortable with- I guess you're not supposed to be comfortable when you're vulnerable, huh? But there is the beauty about owning your own business- you can call it what you want, cry when you want to, and run it all on your own terms.
Have any other questions about me or how this baby of mine got started? Give me a shout, I'd love to get to know you!
