Good Vibrations Blog Inspiration ITF Wedding
I had just sat down to watch Vampire Diaries, eat my veggie burger in my favorite pajamas when I got the text. Tuesday night around 9:30 my friend Jaclyn Journey, an AMAZING flower artist in Louisville, messaged me asking if I had seen the latest issue of Brides Magazine.
Then she sent this picture
 Listing-Bride-Mag
 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was super excited thinking it was a cool local magazine, which would have been great too.
Then she sent me this picture
Bridal Magazine
At this point, the bold red lettering “In America” still didn’t register for me.
Then she sent this picture
Brides Cover
Then it hit me. It took Ciara being on the front cover for me to realize, this is real. This is nationwide. And people are taking notice of our hard, hardhard work. They separated the salons across the country by 4 regions and in bold lettering I read, “The South” and WE ARE THE ONLY SALON IN THE STATE OF KENTUCKY. (My heart is still fluttering even typing that)
Then I freaked out!!!!! I immediately took a video of myself and uploaded it to our private Neatbeat Facebook group (that only the Brigade has access to) and help my phone up to the camera on my Mac book so they could see for themselves. I was filled with passion, excitement, gratitude and hope. One by one and it only took about 30 seconds for everyone to respond and my phone was going crazy.
My almost favorite thing about the scenario, was the fact that EACH one of my girls, had such a sense of pride about this. Every single one of them was incredibly excited and our sweet spot Em J (Emily) even ran to the store to get a copy as soon as she got the message. They were just as excited as I was and as their leader, you only want a team who is as passionate as you.
This goes to the girls that make stuff like this happen. They are incredible and sent to me on purpose and for very specific reasons. We will make history together and my wildest dreams are to lead women through PIP. I believe we are on our way.
A deep gratitude goes to Brides Magazine, for recognizing our hard work. We got super creative with the way our “Going to the Chapel” (what we call our wedding parties) looked like and it’s nice to know that people appreciate it. We are even more inspired to go above and beyond on the big day for ladies and everyday for our Groupies because of this.
And to you Jaclyn Journey, for being the talented flower boss that you are, much love girlfriend!
