Our joy and responsibility

This past week it was ten of ten in the evening, almost done with a three hour planning pow-wow with a client. Just like all the rest, she is super busy all the time, every day.

While we felt we had accomplished everything on our to-do list for the evening, she felt at a loss. Why? All the details of her big day were beginning to fall into place. She had a visual and it was real and alive in her imagination. She knew exactly what I was going to be planning and designing on her behalf in the coming two weeks, prior to us reconvening; vision boards, upgrade and downgrade design options, revising the budget, ribbon shopping, linens, the next go around with invitation samples, etc. She turned to me tired and remarked, “I’m so jealous of you”.

That moment will stay with me forever. When we are going about doing too many things for one day every day, just as everyone else in every other field nowadays, we can find the present moment remembering that we are doing what others, our clients, our brides, our friends, would kill to have the free time to do.

Happy sunday evening! Let another work week begin!
