When I launched The Cosmopolitan Concierge last year, I thought it was a bad idea to make it about me. I thought it would be better to make it sound like it was this super sleek entity with a warehouse full of little wedding elves who were making things happen for my brides (hey, I have a big vision!).
But I was super wrong.
No one wants that.
Who wants to work with a cold, impersonal business? I’m sure you don’t! And that’s really good because the reality is that (at least for now) it’s just me, Tuesday, holding down the fort.
The Cosmopolitan Concierge is ALL ME.
If that sounds a little braggy, that’s because it is. I’m proud of the work I’ve done with my brides. But I promise that I won’t take a single iota of credit when it comes to your wedding. When it looks like a million bucks and your friends are whispering about how amazing it was, I’ll say it was ALL YOU.
So today I thought I’d tell you a few fun things about me and my life – because really, why would you want to work with someone that you didn’t know and love?
At the end of the post I’d love for you to leave a comment and tell me a little about yourself as well (we are going to be in a relationship, afterall). Let’s get to be 2nd level BFFs (I don’t wanna step on your bridesmaids’ toes or anything – NO ONE can replace them)!
*I’m a (non-practicing) lawyer*
Yep, it’s true. I’ve got the Bar card to prove it! People are always a little surprised to learn this because how do you go from lawyer to wedding concierge?? All I can say is: find your happy.
*I’ve chosen to not have children*
Okay, you can exhale now. It’s a tough thing for most people to wrap their heads around, but it never was for me. I’m not inclined to have mini-me’s running around. I don’t worry about who’s going to take care of me when I get older (I’ve got two nephews and 3 great-nephews who I’m bribing to handle that). And all that “extra time” I have on my hands? I use it to spend with my family and my brides.
*I’m a caregiver*
A lot of people assume that if you choose not have to children, you must be selfish. I’m not. I volunteered to manage my mother-in-law’s care when she got to a place where she couldn’t handle it herself. It’s been a bumpy ride, but I’m content knowing that she has an advocate with her best interest at heart.
*I'm allergic to mornings*
I mean, really, what more needs to be said?
*I love breakfast*
I love it so much that it became hashtag: #breakfastwithtuesday. And then an Instagram account: @breakfastwithtuesday
*I’m a woman of faith*
I’m not sure what my life would be without God in it. My faith is such an intricate part of who I am and it guides so much of what I do. Oh honey, I am FAR from perfect. Not. Even. Close. But I strive to be better every day.
*I’m a perfectionist*
This is good news for you – but kind of a struggle for me. It’s great to give 100% to your work (something I will always insist on doing), but when it becomes paralyzing, it can be a problem. But I’m managing it so I can do my best work in a healthy way.
*I’m an analytical creative*
In other words, I am as right brained as I am left brained and the two sides often have a tug-o-war. I admit that I get off on numbers and stats (BONUS: I was almost an economics major in college), but I reach my zen when I can turn all that left-brained mumbo jumbo into something creative. Running a business is kind of the best of both worlds.
*I’m a jeans and t-shirt girl*
Despite being a total fashionista, when I’m off-duty, I live for a lived-in pair of jeans and the perfect white tee (side note: I’m in the market for a new white tee…suggestions, anyone? Leave them in the comments!). Throw in a pair of custom Converse and I’m ready to roll.
*I am addicted to parenthetical side notes (seriously)*
This is more a warning than something about me. I use parenthetical side notes A LOT. You’re gonna see them all over this blog so get ready (how many were in this post already?!?). You’ve been warned.
Okay, enough about me! Tell me about you! I want the deets! And if you really insist of getting to know me better, let’s do coffee (IRL or digitally!). Text me at 480.250.7238
