I have the best customers! One of my absolute favorites is Melissa, a client I met in the Portage Park neighborhood of Chicago while doing a pop-up market in 2016. She is an absolute gem, and offered to host a Galentine’s Day themed jewelry party showcasing my work. The only catch? I’m a little embarrassed to admit, but I was super late to the game on Parks + Rec. I had a couple other awesome customers who were best friends that would come in every year for Galentine’s to get one another gifts, and I guess I must have missed the explanation! At the time Melissa had mentioned it, I’m afraid I hadn’t seen the show yet at all. She was really excited to have a party, but she made me promise to watch the whole series before she would host a party for me. I’m so glad I kept my promise! This has totally become one of my favorite shows ever!
I don’t normally watch a lot of TV, but I have to say, I was immediately hooked. I binge watched the entire series in few short weeks! Once I had done my homework, I contacted her and she got going on getting everything together. I could never have imaged how awesome it was going to be. This girl is a real Knope-it-all, and I mean that in the best possible way 😉
