"SEPTEMBER"

...to the beat of Earth Wind and Fire. Because it feels like my song is playing on the dance floor of life right now.  One of the main reasons is that I have been featured in the September issue of Modern Luxury's, The Atlantan.  Me;  Modest Mississippi roots.  Middle class girl who rode her palomino bareback after school on roads of sand.  First-runner-up in the Miss Blue Crab pageant of Wakulla County.  Humble roots.  Nevertheless, I was included among several noteworthy, talented women of Atlanta in the Women of Power and Influence feature.  To say that I am honored seems trite.  But I am so deeply honored (grinning with hands silly-clapping).  To be recognized in this way legitimizes all of the hard work that I have done.  When I started this business from the loft of my Portland Oregon home, in 2003, this kind of success was only a dream.  I would be remiss if I didn't thank the many clients "brides" who made this American-dream-come-true possible.  THANK YOU!!!
