Happy birthday to…. Me!
Today I turn 35 years young and, of course, you know I’ll take any opportunity to celebrate. This weekend I’ll be living it up in D.C. with my husband as we celebrate with museums, delicious restaurants and hopefully a little rest and relaxation.
But first, I’m taking a moment to reflect - both on my life so far, but also one of the things I’m most proud of: my business.
I started J. Leigh Events just 6 years ago as a side gig to the desk job I worked for a law firm. Before that I worked for a church and was responsible for planning church-wide events, which is how I found out I loved event planning. I started to miss it at the law firm I worked for, and decided to do it myself part-time.
It is absolutely crazy to me that my little side business to make some extra cash has turned into what it is today. This year is the biggest one yet with more and larger events than ever before. Some days it leaves me a little awestruck.
Already we’re in the beginning stages of planning Camp North End’s Next Plate 2.0 Series for the fall after having such a successful first round. It’s events and organizations like these that made me want to be an event planner in the first place, so it’s a dream come true to plan these types of things.
Okay, enough of the mushy stuff. It’s time to celebrate, so here are a few fun things you should know about me, Jennifer Leigh.
