A lot of times, life isn’t at all like the fairytales we used to read as children. Bluebirds and mice don’t show up to do the dishes and the laundry, and I don’t know about you, but my fairy godmother certainly hasn’t graced me with her presence quite yet.

It’s that time of year, brides are wrapping up the final details for their weddings. This is when I get more questions and see more comments on good ol’ Facebook about wedding favors. My answer to these inquires is always in the form of a question, or rather two questions: Does your budget allow you […]

Jen and I met when I was called in to coordinate her bff Kara’s early 2016 wedding. Needless to say we hit it off right away and when I got the call from her one day, I was more than excited to help her plan her very own wedding! Jen was a little reluctant to […]
