The Event Lady's Favorite Family Fourth of July SW Florida Events

I have lived in the US almost my whole life...  I am a Cuban refugee who arrived at the age of 9 and became a United States citizen on my sweet sixteen birthday with my parents. As an event planner, I love celebrating Independence Day with my family every year, and now that I have grandchildren, nieces and nephews, I try to find the best family spots in Southwest Florida to enjoy a nice afternoon with safe, beautiful fireworks in the evening. I am extremely proud of my Hispanic heritage, but have learned to love this country as my own as well; therefore it is with pride that I share some family events that will be happening in our area this weekend to celebrate the Independence of the country that took a lot of us in.

During my years as a party planner, and having raised a family and surviving the struggle of balancing work and play time, I also share some advice; enjoy your families and your free time with them.. remember life is not all about work, balance the ratio and your rewards in the future will be inmense. I always remember a wise saying I was once told; "Work to live, not live to work." Your children and teens will thank you in the future... the latest style of mobile devices, trendy jeans or computer games will seem less important when they are all grown up and become parents as well.

I thought it was not so important a long time ago; guess what? I was wrong.... my children taught me so.

Florida Weddings and Special Events Weblog
 
The Event Lady's blog posts are focused on the wedding, sweet sixteen and quince/sweet fifteen
celebrations of Florida, we love to hear about many other social events happening in our own Florida communities.

A quince celebration is very much like a wedding reception; it is a traditional coming of age celebration in a young woman's life within the Hispanic culture.
The Event Lady is an expert in both weddings and quinceañera events, and feeling proud of her Cuban heritage; enjoys this very special niche of the special event industry. Quinces parties have very similar planning needs to a wedding event.

We invite Florida brides and quinceañeras of all nationalities to comment on our blogs, each one has a small cooment link on the bottom of each post. 

We also invite wedding photographers to tell us about their great events; submit event images with your website credit on them of course on the lower right hand corner
so you can share bridal ideas and savvy wedding tips.

We invite any wedding and quince professionals to inform us about the latest industry news, useful articles and product updates.

We will review your submissions, and if we feel they could be good for this blog, then post them up for you so that the readers;
most importantly our Floridian brides, quince and sweet sixteen girls,
will have additional resources for their event coordination within our tropical Sunshine State region.
