My husband and I consider ourselves travelers. We try to not sound like those pretentious people who start every story with something like "...when we were trekking in the hill-tribes near Chiang Mai..." , but travel is extremely important to us and it's made us the people we are. We're forever dreaming about the places we're going to go to next and reminiscing about the places we've been and the people we've met.
Being self employed has its pros and cons in that technically, we could travel as much as we could afford to, but when you're self employed, you're forever hustling to get business. Not only are you not getting paid for the time that you're gone, but you're also missing out on the jobs that you could be booking at that time. I consider it worth it though. Tomorrow I leave for India for three weeks. Three weeks!!! These three weeks of travel coming up took me six months of prepping for. I had to block off an eight week window of time where I did not take any weddings during February or immediately after I return. But it's the price I'm willing to pay to get out of my little corner of the universe.
So I'm signing off as Amber Events for a while and going out to explore the exciting world out there!
