New Internship

19 01 2010

ok, I just picked up an internship today.  I am now a wedding planner at North Hampton House in American Fork.  It is a gorgeous venue and I am delighted that they will teach me a bunch of the consulting and planning side but also maybe some floral.  I would suggest checking out their website.  htto://www.northhamptonhouse.com

The NorthHampton house reception center was actually built as an LDS church in the early 1900’s.

The courtyard room is used more for evening receptions.  It has a built in dance floor in the room and is just beautiful.  We also have all of the lines on site and during planning meetings we will put everything together so you know exactly how it will look.  We also offer catering and buffets (and cakes)

The Garden is used a lot during the spring and summer.  It even has a sound system set up out there.

The Somerset room is very popular for ceremonies because of this stain glass window and grand staircase at the back of the room.





Keep Playing

4 01 2010

Today in Relief Society, Heather shared this quote with us.  She was trying to help us realize our worth as daughters of God.  We are never alone and we have loving Heavenly Parents that gave Christ to us to help us return to them.  We can do it, but with the help of christ life can be an amazing experience where we can touch many lives.

this story is of a young piano student. His mother, wishing to encourage him, “bought tickets for a performance of the great Polish pianist, Paderewski. The night of the concert arrived and the mother and son found their seats near the front of the concert hall. While the mother visited with friends, the boy slipped quietly away.

“Suddenly, it was time for the performance to begin and a single spotlight cut through the darkness of the concert hall to illuminate the grand piano on stage. Only then did the audience notice the little boy on the bench, innocently picking out ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.’

“His mother gasped, but before she could move, Paderewski appeared on stage and quickly moved to the keyboard. He whispered to the boy, ‘Don’t quit. Keep playing.’ And then, leaning over, the master reached down with his left hand and began filling in the bass part. Soon his right arm reached around the other side, encircling the child, to add a running obbligato. Together, the old master and the young novice held the crowd mesmerized.

“In our lives, unpolished though we may be, it is the Master who surrounds us and whispers in our ear, time and time again, ‘Don’t quit. Keep playing.’ And as we do, He augments and supplements until a work of amazing beauty is created. He is right there with all of us, telling us over and over, ‘Keep playing.’

New Years has come

1 01 2010

I hope you all had a wonderful midnight moment.  I had a nice evening.

I started off my evening by taking my brother to his church youth party at the high school.  They did a little talent show, hockey, basketball, boardgames, movies, and food.  I stayed for like 2 hours and spent time with my brother and talking with Chaneux (my old neighbor) and Sister Barfuss.

I then left and went to Jessica Campbell’s gravesite and talked to her for a little bit.  I know its weird but it is something I do whenever I am in town. I wish I could really talk to her but I at least get to sort through my thoughts whenever I go there.

Then I met up with Travis and Ronny and played Ticket to Ride at Denny’s.  I think we played for 3 1/2 hours.  Well Travis and I did.  ronny ditched out pretty early.  It is totally normal for us to play boardgames at Denny’s and another group of kids about our age came in and they really liked our idea so one of them went to Walmart to buy a game to play for themselves.  Aren’t you proud of our trendsetting.  really though, that is a fun activity, unlimited hot chocolate, food, friends, games, and no one getting into trouble.
