Well I'm a dork. Is that normal?!
Hi. I'm Abby and because I am a small business owner living in 2019 I am writing my own "about me"page. And yes, it is cool and nerdy all at the same time.
I live in Springfield, Missouri and I love it. I grew up in Branson (go Pirates) and graduated from the University of Arkansas (go Hogs) where I met and fell in love with my husband, Clint. We did the newlywed thing for awhile like eating pizza and Chinese food for most meals and playing tennis at 9 or 10 every night. Our firstborn, Otto, was born in 2015 and little Whitman followed just 13 months later. This girly girl got a double dose of #boymom in a quick way!
All the while our family has been growing and changing so has this sweet business. It gives and takes in the best ways. It has been a blessing in the way it provides for my family, yes, but it has also been so much more than that. Honestly putting it into words kind of seems daunting.
I guess what it comes down to is... Do I love weddings? Sure. But what I love most is the people. I love learning the relationships of families and watching traditions take place. I love delivering the bouquet to the bride with her late father's shirt cuff wrapped around the stems. Or tasting a piece of the groom's cake that his mom made. I love the late night sweaty hugs with a couple that celebrated to the fullest and that I know I'll send a Christmas card to. It is all pretty silly without the people.
So here I am trying to sum up how awesome this job and this business is and all I am doing is making my font smaller and my text box bigger. Basically it is awesome! And if you want to read more try this...
