Tabitha created a wonderful private brunch for my husband and I in downtown Chicago. She added little intimate details that made our anniversary celebration special and unique. My favorite moment was the surprise waffle stack she had delivered to our table following our meal. She remembered me saying my husbands favorite breakfast food is waffles. She organized an entire weekend of activities that really catered to both our interests and provided us with the opportunit of really exploring the city. Thank you Tabitha for making our 10th anniversary so memorable! - Kim 
Tabitha organized
a very special surprise birthday celebration for me. She was very thoughtful and generous with her time spent on paying attention to details. I feel, Tabitha has a beautiful sense of what is important to people, and can add those special, personal touches with grace. Thank you for all your work!

Tabitha planned a fun and creative day for our end of summer church camp. Her thoughtfulness and attention to detail made everyone feel included and we loved how creative she was with all of the team games. We could not have asked for a more well organized event for an unorganized group.
Thank you Tabitha!
