Hi! I’m Krista Glover, adoring mama to Cille (my mini) and Luc (named after his father and my hubby, Lucas). We live in Florida, and as a warm weather fan, I wouldn’t have it any other way! My husband , so I get to spend lots of quality time with my babies. When I’m not with them, I’m most likely working on my event planning business. Krista Glover Facebook is given above.
As a “type-A” person, event planning was a no brainer for me. I’ve always had an eye for what goes together and how to plan a party. My best friend from college, Amanda, and I decided to start an event planning business together. We know how to knock an event out of the ballpark for any occasion! And the best part, I get to do what I love every day. The above is a link of Krista Glover Facebook Profile.
I met Amanda while at Furman University, which, if you don’t know, is in South Carolina. There I learned I preferred the humidity over the howling winter winds of Maine. After college, I took an internship in London, and when I moved back to the states, high tailed to the south (Jacksonville to be exact).
But I still love reminiscing on my days in Maine. Growing up, I was a huge tomboy and much preferred playing outside in the dirt and mud to getting dressed up for parties if Tomboy Krista could only see me now!
In high school, the tomboy in me flourished playing basketball. But, the girly-girl in me showed her crown a little, too. In fact, that girly girl was crowned Miss Maine Teen USA. Little Tomboy Krista rolled over in her mud puddle when that happened!
I think both sports and pageants taught me a lot about being a team player and the importance of women working together to build, support, and empower each other. Two concepts that have stuck with me throughout my life, and ones I hope to teach my children. My husband may have chosen a sport more befitting a lone wolf, but he still understands the importance of teamwork and loyalty, both of which we hold dear in our marriage.
My favorite quote is, “You pass the same people on the way up as you do on the way down.” We all have ups and downs in our lives; we all have good moments and bad. But what matters is how you treat people when your on your way, especially the ones who are on their way down. Life ebbs and flows, and although I hope you’re one of the lucky few who will, you probably won’t be going up forever… I value anyone who understands this and hope to always be there for my friends and family as they’ve been there for me.
As a mother, I strive to teach my children this, and I hope they have the confidence to always be themselves, no matter what level of “up” or “down” their life is stopped at. My babies are also my biggest inspirations, inspiring, and pushing me to be the best version of myself. Not just for myself, but my kids, husband, and my career.
