It's Never Too Late

So I didn't get to document my wedding planning process on this blog like I originally intended. I decided to start at about the 3 month mark - what was I thinking?! 3 months till the BIG DAY and start a blog. Yep, sounds simple enough, right? Wrong!

I was much too busy with the wedding planning and not used to regularly blogging. Needless to say, disaster ensued. Since I've decided to keep this blog for now, I figure why not blog about the planning process? I've definitely learned quite a bit during the process so maybe I can help other brides out there (as if anyone actually reads this thing). So what if I'm no longer a bride? I'm a newlywed and everything is still fresh on my mind.

Hopefully you'll enjoy reading it almost as much as I've enjoyed planning and executing it. =)

Short and Sweet

There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good.

So, love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy.

That's the plan for 2011.

New Year... new resolutions?

So as the new year is upon us I find myself making the cliche resolutions. Although this year I'd like to make a slight change in hopes that they'll actually stick and last past February. Instead of calling them resolutions, I've make a list of things that I'd like to accomplish by the end of the year. I function much better with lists and get a lot of satisfaction when I get to cross items off my various lists. I also like naming my lists (blame it on my type A personality!). So what would normally be called my 2011 resolutions, is now my Life in 2011 list.

One of the items on my Life in 2011 list is to write and blog more. I realized very quickly last year that starting a wedding blog a few months before the BIG DAY was a bad idea. I would've loved to document my planning experience on my blog but the timing was just horrible. That paired with the fact that I wasn't quite used to regularly updating a blog was a disaster waiting to happen. Oh well... one more lesson learned in 2010!

2010 was a bittersweet year for me; I've experienced some of the best and worst moments of my life. It has been a roller-coaster of a ride but I've learned a lot from my experiences and am happy to have come out on the other side a stronger person.

One of the biggest lessons I've learned in 2010 is that I do have the courage to step up, the determination to stand my ground, and the happiness to live my life. I feel like a new woman! So for 2011 I'm going to fix my thoughts on the positive and charge full steam ahead.

So Happy New Year my lovelies! I wish you all much love, continued happiness, and even more poignant moments that make you laugh, cry, and smile.
