Thank you My Little Flower Shop!

It’s our anniversary!  I can’t believe Stephen and I were the first step on the amazing path of weddings My Little Flower Shop set off on four years ago.  We reminisce all the time…so beautiful. Planned perfectly, executed beautifully.  Just like all that followed and continue! So proud to be a part of the team.

Loving well and living well.

Wedding planning and time management

As kids, time moves like molasses.  Between birthdays was an eternity! When weddings are scheduled far in advance, they seem far away (sometimes literally)– but this is grown up stuff folks- the months will slip through your fingers like sand.

The trick is to keep the kid in you alive!  Remember how special it was to anticipate your birthday party, and try to embrace that feeling over the stress of details and family nonsense.  Remember- you’re doing all of this to marry the love of your life!  And it’s going to be amazing.

Be well, and love well.

BEST WEDDING PLANNING BOOKS! We cooked up a good one…

Our recommendations for the best wedding books are not traditional. They’re more about keeping you and your partner in crime on the same page. (Page! Get it? hah!) You’ve got to stay in close emotional touch with the person you’re marrying!  Here’s a book to help you do just that.

How To Cook Everything by Mark Bittman is designed to get you into the kitchen – together!  Mark, longtime food writer for the New York Times and Gourmet Magazine explains ingredients, techniques and cooking terms in no-nonsense language.   Time in the kitchen is an ideal way to remember how much you love to be together without worrying about place cards and ceremony details. Pick a dish and create something delicious together.

Be well, and love well.
