This week I started my internship at the Pink Polka Dot in Falmouth, MA. The Pink Polka Dot is a stationary  and gift store and is also the premiere wedding planning on the Cape. The owner and wedding planner, Jennifer Chagnon is known for her beautiful weddings and invitations.

I heard about the Pink Polka Dot through a friend who had ordered invitations with Jen and was incredibly pleased with the results. Event planning is something that I’ve always been interested in and thought this would be the perfect internship.

Since I was little I loved helping my mom plan and set up parties. Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to plan a few of my own gatherings. From the planning to the food, I love getting everything little detail just right to make the perfect party.

So far my internship has been spectacular. On the very first day I got to meet with a bride. I get to learn all about retail by working in the store while also gaining experience in wedding planning. I’m also helping with all aspects of social media, which is something I love. This is turning out to be the perfect internship!

Do you enjoy planning events?

A few days ago I went on a walk along the beach with my sister. It was my first time at the beach since returning home. It is finally feeling like summer.

Taking walks on the beach is one of my favorite things to do. When I was younger I would spend hours wandering up and down the shoreline searching for sea glass and other treasures.

The beach was so peaceful and quiet. Soon it will be filled with tourists and summer people. I must admit, I much prefer the beach empty and quiet.  Nonetheless, this summer shall be a good one.

Tune in later to see what’s on my 2o15 summer bucket list.

Do you like walking on the beach?
