I’m Laysha. Since you’re here, you must want to know a bit about who I am and what makes me tick. Well, I was born in Georgia in a little town I like to call Gainesville… well actually, that’s the name of the town so it makes sense to call it that. I am the middle child (no syndrome here). I have an older sister and a younger brother.
I currently live on St. Thomas in the gorgeous Virgin Islands. I moved here a few years after high school just to have an adventure in a tropical paradise. Little did I know that five years later, I would still be here.
My parents think the commute to see me is a bit much, but the scenery is worth it. I met the love of my life shortly after moving here, which makes it that much better. She has four legs, a tail, and loves chasing iguanas. Her name is Nikki. She also happens to come with a cute master who I’ve also gotten quite attached to. His name is Tim. Tim and I share a home with Nikki and a new little addition arrived not long ago… her name is Pepper. She’s actually a dog too but don’t tell her… she thinks she’s a cat.
My hobbies include boating, hanging at the beach with Tim and the dogs, talking to my mom on the phone (almost daily), watching Friends (repeatedly and unapologetically), eating spaghetti for breakfast (it’s awesome… don’t knock it ‘til you try it), listening to 90s rock (Alanis Morisette is the smartest woman I know… besides my mom), and having Thanksgiving dinner almost EVERY Thursday (which inevitably means turkey sandwiches every Friday) I’m still not sure which holiday I like best, Thanksgiving or the day after.
When I’m not playing or eating, I am planning weddings for some very amazing people. I absolutely love meeting new couples and helping make their wedding day awesome. That may sound cheesy, but it’s true. My life is awesome. My job is awesome. My dogs are awesome. My mom is awesome (she made me put that in here). My fiance is awesome. It’s ALL Irie.
I’ve been planning events and parties since high school when I got my first chance to plan our homecoming. My classmates liked it so much, I was voted class president. Needless to say, I’m a success story who likes turkey sandwiches, Alanis Morisette, and planning the perfect destination wedding… and I’ve learned a very important fact while doing what I do… rain on your wedding day is actually good luck (Ironic…don’t ya think?)
