Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a fantastic holiday!

I've found this wonderful site about happiness. I think in the frenzy that is wedding planning, it's great to take a step back and consider what makes you happy. A wedding is a day (or a few), but a marriage is a lifetime. The Happiness Project has great tips, articles, and suggestions for happiness.

A recent article talks about gratitude, and how it is a key to happiness. So think about what you are thankful and grateful for, and experience some happiness!


Favorite Blog: Wedding Bee

My first real venture into reading a blog consistently was WeddingBee. I started reading before the idea of marriage even was a topic of conversation. I found WeddingBee through my co-worker who was chosen as a bee last spring. She is now Mrs. Tomato. Since then I started casually reading the blog and then it became a routine in the morning. With so many different voices of all the bees, there were so many ideas and points of view. It was great!

However, the entire time that I was "secretly" reading WeddingBee, part of me felt like I shouldn't be. I wasn't a bride to be. I wasn't helping plan a wedding. I didn't have anything to do with the wedding world. But I enjoyed reading the blog, especially since I would in the future...someday.

After the engagement, I felt like I had a legitimate reason to be reading WeddingBee. I didn't feel embarrassed to be reading bridal things because now I had a reason. Now I use WeddingBee for all sorts of inspiration. The other bees have had so many great ideas and a lot of it was DIY. I'm looking to do as much (within reason) DIY. I'm going for a personalized look that is entirely us. Thanks WeddingBee for being such an inspiration!



December, oh my!

Wow, I don't know how the time past so quickly, and it's now December. The holiday season is upon us!
