November 1, 2018
November is a pretty special month. The most prominent reason is because Thanksgiving. Who does not like Thanksgiving? It’s the holiday where you’re able to consume the most amount of food, diets get thrown out of the window for a day, and you get to spend the afternoon with all your loved ones.
Besides Thanksgiving, what else is so special for us here at Ohana Events? Well, it’s our one year anniversary! Where has the time gone? I cannot even express how fast this year has flown by. To be specific, November 6th is when Ohana Events, Inc. was born in the state of Illinois. That means 5 more days until we pop a bottle of champagne to toast the success that we’ve had thus far. We exactly doubled our goal for weddings in 2018 and we could not be more proud.
Pono is the perfect Hawaiian value to strive for this month because it’s defined as:
One year ago, I knew I was ready to start my own company based on the years of experience under my belt. But having the confidence and drive to start a company does not necessarily mean it’s the right decision. After reflecting this past year’s ups, downs but overall success really makes me believe this is a great path. I feel relieved, content and truly blessed to be where I am standing right now.
Another aspect of pono is feeling the right amount of balance in life. To be honest, we’re entering one of my favorite times of the year. I absolutely adore the holidays, both Thanksgiving and Christmas time. So this combination of my company’s one year anniversary and the start to the holidays fills a special part in my heart. I cannot wait to spend more time with my family as the wedding season settles down!
