"Connections are made with the heart, not the tongue" - C. Joybell

Your experience isn't about the walls or technology but it is about how you and your guests feel when they are here. I want to create a situation where we have longevity in our relationship so when you come back, it is easier for you to host an event because you know I care and we care about each person attending. - Kristin Barstad
