You know when life is so crazy that you literally just want to fast forward a day or so just so you can get to the weekend? Well thats how i felt about the entire month of October. I was just wishing i could skip the endless hours of work and stress and end up on the other side in lovely calm November. However, that is SO not how life works and instead i put in a bazillion hours of work, was stressed to the max, cranky, sleepy, and just plain exhausted. But there is good news.... There were a total of 12 events that happened in October and these were not small, order cookies and lemonade and call it a day events. These were all complex and complicated and although my love for events runs deep this was just plain a lot. And the good news is that they all went great. Obviously with any event there are always things i wish i could go back and tweak but over all there were no massive disasters. Phew! Talk about relief. So you now can see why i am SO thrilled to turn the calendar to November where things are a lot less hectic.
So what exactly was i working on? Well here is a little pictures timeline for ya! Oh and of course i attempted to squeeze in a life as well..yep..packed month
