Going the Distance

We’re going to Hawaii in a little less than two weeks, and while planning slowly for what seemed to be very relaxing and well-deserved Babymoon, has turned into a somewhat nerve-wracking worst timing-ever for a trip that it could be. B hates flying and is nervous about our trip in the first place – and […]

A September for Me

It’s really easy for me to see someone’s business goals and help them along the way. Sometimes this desire to help clients and their goals clouds my own because I get so excited with their goals I forget about focusing on my own. I’ve been slowly, carefully, cautiously filling out the beautiful @powersheets by @cultivatewhatmatters all year and as […]

snap. snap. snap.

Brian was pretty low-key throughout the planning process over the last year (I mean, he’s pretty low key all the time, but still). One thing he did request we follow: he wanted to make sure we had a great photographer. Um, no brainer, I thought. But he had his reasons. So, the search began. Tamara […]

and then there were two days left

So, clearly I had visions that weren’t exactly met with this blog. Writing almost daily, learning, providing tips to other entrepreneurial brides were just some of the reasons I wanted to start this – still do. Still have the list I’ve been adding to, and adding to, ready for fabulous topics after the wedding (when this blog […]

the list.

November already? As if – it’s almost the end of November already. Days are flying by, and the countdown to the big day gets smaller and smaller. So many events have happened since I started going to yoga again (has it been 2 months already?) that I’m sitting here – ready for bed (at 9PM) […]

budgets + business

It’s been a crazy few weeks and it’s only just recently hit me that this wedding is like … a few months away and I still haven’t managed to fill out the “love story” section of this website. Oops. But things are happening. Pretty much a week after the proposal, I realized I wanted to […]

new homes new babies

Things have been crazy for the last little while, to say the least. For the most part, I’m handling the busyness quite well, but every day, I’m more and more grateful I have the help I do from Danielle at The White Book Company with the planning of this wedding. Basically, I needed to do one […]

vendor shopping

Recently, I found out that one of the vendors I’d met with while shopping a service a few months ago, and ultimately didn’t choose, unfollowed me and my business on all social media. I was taken aback. After all, this same person was someone I’d met with over a year ago and I gave her […]

the end of writer’s block

I’m sitting here feeling like I’ve got writer’s block and then realizing I’ve felt like I’ve had writer’s block for several years. Where did I come from, I wonder? Probably a lack of practice, really. I’ve gotten excited about creating this blog, to document the journey to our wedding day combined with the slow switch […]
