Freedom to Be Happy

I once joined a committee just so I could associate with Mary Crafts. As owner of Culinary Crafts, Mary is a genius at both food and event planning, which are my Kryptonite. Together we have worked on four galas for the United Way of Utah County Women in Philanthropy, and all four have been deliciously successful. Because of Mary. She also dishes out dining reviews in Utah Valley Magazine. So it was with great pleasure that I watched her serve up an evening of happiness on Saturday at her wedding reception. It was worth missing the Stadium of Fire to see the fireworks between Mary and Rick, who were all aglow as they mingled, danced and sang amidst glorious food stations and lime green decor. Mary, I’ve admired you since 2004 when I interviewed you for a BusinessQ cover story.We laughed then, and we’ve shared smiles (and a few tears) in the past eight years. Thank you for all you’ve shared with me. Congratulations!
