Phew! Last year was certainly a doozy, wasn't it? But let's not go into specifics... we all know what happened and what we're still facing.
So you can imagine how hard it was for me to see all of the sadness in the world and wondering "What can I do?"
I'm just a princess performer. I can't rush into hospitals and save lives; I can't help create a vaccine; I can't do anything of true importance.
But then I realized what I can do... I can bring magic into the lives of those who are too young to understand. I can bring a smile to the faces of children who miss school, who miss their friends, who miss 'normal' just as much as we do.
So that's what I set out to do. Starting in March of 2020, all of my events turned virtual. I decided to offer personalized messages, video calls, and virtual parties (for more info on these, click here: VIRTUAL VISITS).
And I couldn't believe what happened - my client base all of a sudden became global. Instead of just reaching people in Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Castle Rock, Denver, and even Colorado Springs, I was getting requests from Canada, England, and even so far as Australia! Sorting out time zones became something I did daily, and it's certainly not as easy as it seems.
I was becoming a different princess every day of the week and while it was certainly a crazy schedule to maintain, the joy I was helping to create was worth each and every moment I spent worrying about colored contact lenses and wig caps.
And to think that it was because of something so heartbreaking that began something so heart-healing...
But sadly, my heart still got so heavy at times that I couldn't manage to put my thoughts into words and fill you in on everything I did get to do as a princess performer over the past year. However that's what I'm hoping to bring to my blog - all of the snapshots and stories that make me look back and realize perhaps 2020 wasn't a completely horrible year after all.
