Creamy Clementine Smoothie

Creamy Clementine Smoothie

If you are a child of the 80's as I am, you may have a secret love and fond nostalgia for Orange Julius. I loved them. Now, I know they are still open (and in fact, we have one at our mall), but I can't really bring myself to get them anymore. I remember hearing a buzz that they are full of weird stuff (surprise surprise), but I just googled it and found out the ingredients officially are: orange juice, sweetener, vanilla flavoring, milk, and....wait for it...powdered egg whites. Um, OK. No thanks. So, thanks again to Pinterest files and my desire to make the most delicious dinner possible on our 'scrounge' night, I give you a fabulous smoothie perfect for seasonal winter time (er, Spring???) fruit. My children adored this, and we had a fun little chat telling them about our Orange Julius loving days of childhood.  It was an awesome use of my last 2 bananas.

I do what I do because I love it.  The greatest part of existing on this planet is the ability to work with other humans and see their joy come to life.  That's why I work in two different worlds.  

As a wedding planner, I am lucky enough to get to know couples as they go through an intense but really joyful journey. My goal is for you to focus on the marriage part, while I focus on the wedding part of.  Let me take some of the work of your hands and let you two enjoy your day, enjoy the people that will be celebrating with you, and be in the moment.

As a web developer and digital marketer, I get to see your heart and soul come to life on the interwebs.  We get to discuss your goals and your vision, and my hope is that I help that come to fruition. Basically, I am here to make dreams come true, and I could not think of a better way to exist.  

I currently live with my fiancé and attempt to bribe him daily into letting me get a puppy.  Lover of eggs and avocado toast, too many potted plants, a good Netflix binge, and swearing more than my parents would care to hear.

Let's dream together.
