100 and counting….

Yesterday marked my last event of the season (not counting the eminent last-minute events). After the event I had time to decompress and re-evaluate my prep list before the event pick back up after the holidays. While decompressing, I realized that this last event of the season was my 100th event in my current position! Insane! That means 100 events since I started Aug. 1st- 100 events in 136 days (counting weekends).

I’m super proud of this moment and can’t really believe it! Time has flown! I have nothing really more to say about it- just amazed. So I’ll leave you with my “Event Tweets” that have documented a bit of my journey… Here’s to 100 more!!

  1. Hey Lauren!

    Congratulations on 100 events — that is really exciting!! I’ve been a follower of your blog for a little bit and I just love your posts! It is my dream some day to make it to the big city and until then, I’m living vicariously through you and a few other New-Yorkers :) I was hoping if if you would be willing to email me about how you got to where you are right now. I’m currently finishing up my bachelors degree at the University of Michigan and I have a desire to get into event planning (I had an internship in the philanthropy department at the hospital that planned many fundraising events and absolutely loved it!) Anyway, I would greatly appreciate any tips and words from the wise :)

  2. Thanks Misty! I totally forgot I had disabled my contact link! Thank you for reminding me to re-enable it! Email me at my contact above and I’d be happy to chat!
