I've been thinking back on 2008 this past week and it's always so sad to see the year come to an end, but I'm so excited to see what 2009 holds.
Here's a quick look back at some of the highlights from the year.
I attended the Special Event show in Atlanta, GA. It was such a great learning experience and networking opportunity. I'm looking forward to January 2009 for TSE in San Diego!
Greg & Fefe tied the knot at Holy Cross and wowed their guests with a one of a kind reception on OSU's campus.
