Soooo .. The first month is over and let’s just say it has been a WHIRLWIND!!  We came into this new venture knowing we wanted to give 100% - that’s 100% on top of the rest of the commitments we have going on.  So let’s see what we accomplished ..

January 1 – Launched Primrose + Lily's websiteFacebook, and Instagram, pages  (with an agreement already in place to Co-Sponsor the March Triangle Wedding Connection networking function at The Laurelbrook)

January 8 – Lunch with fellow planner Emily, of Emily Katherine Events

January 12 – Venue Tours of the City of Raleigh properties - Borden Building, Tucker House, and Mordecai House

January 16 – Walkthrough at CE Rental to check out all the pretties

January 18 – Attended Open House at The Laurelbrook

January 19 – Our first officially planned styled shoot -- be on the lookout for the pictures and video!!

January 20 – Walkthrough at Petal + Oak (wow the inventory!)

January 22 – Met some new Frendors at the Triangle Wedding Connection event at Riddle Raleigh

January 28 – TuesdaysTogether at Jiddi Space

January 30 – Purchased a new phone line just for the business (things were getting confusing haha!)

These are just the outside things we were doing.  This doesn’t include website updates, answering emails, and responding to voicemails.  Things are rolling right along!!  And while we definitely love what we're doing, we appreciate all of the support from everyone even more!!

February is here already (not sure where it came from), and we are planning to be out at events this month, as well.   Keep your eyes out for Kayce, she’s pretty easy to spot - look for the curly hair and the big smile!

Stay tuned - there's more to come !

Curious about where trends come from, what happened at last weekend's wedding, or the best attractions for your company fun day?  Great - I'm here to help you out with all of that!

Hi!  I'm Joanie, and I plan to ask the questions most won't to get the answers most want.  Where do trends come from?  Who decides what's 'in style'?  Have I told you how much walking I did at last weekend's Christmas wedding?  What can Instagram do for us?

If I'm curious, I know you have to be, too!  And while I'll share my findings, tell me know what you want to learn about, too!  Instagram, Email, Facebook - let me know!

Until then ..
