Happy New Year everyone! And to the recently engaged: congratulations and welcome.
Often times when people first get engaged the planning bug sneaks up quickly and takes them over like a surreptitious zombie attack. One minute you’re thinking you’re going to enjoy a leisurely engagement period and, the next thing you know, after taking “just a little peek” at some funky wedding fashions – chomp! - you’ve been bitten and are wondering how you managed to create forty-two separate Pinterest boards as you head off to work swirly-eyed on two hours of sleep.
With so much input from so many places, it’s pretty easy these days to get your panties in a bunch over all kinds of planning issues – so much so that it can spoil what should be a fun process just moments after you begin. This is why I’ve decided to try something new in 2012 by sprinkling the Adventures page with occasional bits of sane, grounding planning advice. My goal is to inoculate you a little bit, get those undies in a more comfortable place, and keep you moving forward so you can enjoy the ride.
