Fresh Beginnings


Happy New Year!

And, we’re back.

In November we weren’t sure where things were going with this blog, or if they were going at all.

But, it’s a new year, and a new day. So, let’s give it another go.

Over the course of the next year we’ll be talking about events, event planning, creativity (and creating events), and perhaps a good bit of history.

Come along with us on the journey as we Celebrate the Past and Create the Future.

Bring it on, 2017!

I’m Sorry


It’s not you, it’s me.

Or something like that.

When we relaunched this blog in October we had high hopes for where it would take us. But the blog just isn’t going where we thought it would and it’s taking a bit more time out of our daily schedule that we’d like it to. With the holidays coming up it’s just going to be one more source of stress.

We’re not saying we won’t be back. But we’re taking the rest of 2016 to regroup, rethink, and perhaps…perhaps…relaunch in the new year.

Best to all.

Thanks for stopping by.
