Hey y’all! I hope summer has been good to everyone!! I just wanted to post a short update about all the happenings around the Southern Fete/Val Marie Paper office!

Last week, I had our product shoot for the new branding, headshots and the new collection with Catherine Guidry. Eight hours shooting OUTSIDE…in July…in South Louisiana. Cat was such a trooper!! And we really had such a good time. After prepping for months for the shoot, it all came together better than I could have imagined! I can’t wait to share everything with y’all in September!

I’ve been able to spend a good bit of time getting ready for the launch. One thing I’m working on is organizing the new blog. I’m planning on sharing tons of information I’ve learned as a wedding planner, printable goodies to help plan a wedding, spotlighting some of my favorite entrepreneurs and the usual inspiration boards BUT I’ll also cover a lot of other things as well! Things about health, finance, life after i do’s, balance and more!

To gear up for it, I’m writing lots of posts this month but will wait to share them until after the new blog launches so it will be pretty quiet here for the next 6 weeks! Eek! Only six weeks!! Looking forward to sharing all very soon!

In the mean time, check out my Val & Words site for some personal inspiration.
