A Public Service Announcement from The Easter Bunny.

Hello Friends!  I hope you are enjoying Springtime, and frolicking about at your every opportunity.  One thing  I’d like to warn about, and it’s something busy folks fall prey to sometimes, including yours truly.  It’s the “P” word – Procrastination.  Since the Internet came along (will somebody tell Al Gore I’m working on the Peep liver pate, but can’t promise anything) we have further and further fragmented our attention and our time.  The latest rabbit hole I’ve come to know the inner walls of is that of “Pinterest” the online bulletin board site.  I would log on there and see pictures upon pictures of pretty Easter decor, and yummy treats.  By the time I perked up my ears, it was dark outside!

So here’s my tip for anyone finding themselves deep in the depths of any online (or on-screen) activity. Facebook, Word processing, X-box….set a kitchen timer for the amount of time you’d like to allot, and then when that bell goes off, shut it down.  It’s not easy.  But, as my friend Kermit the Frog tells mare some things in life just aren’t. (He refers to being green, but I think it’s widely applicable).

OK, PSA done.  Let the GOOD TIMES, AND THE EASTER EGGS ROLL!

What’s The Best Use Of Wedding Planning Time? Hint: You’re not going to “like” it.

Planning a wedding can feel like a black hole where you throw your time. Remember those days when you went out for drinks? As Spring hits, the weather is making us all long to put on some shorts and go play. So what’s the most efficient way to plan, so we can get out and enjoy the beautiful weather? Well, for starters, finish reading this blog and power down your shiny screen. Bottom line: you gotta stop pinning, liking and tweeting to focus and get things done.

Don’t get me wrong.  Wedding websites, blogs and software have moved event planning lightyears ahead of where we were. But then you get to the “rabbit hole” type of phenomenon like Pinterest.  You start out admiring a pretty veil someone posted, and three hours later you’re in a pinning frenzy finding recipes, houses to buy, cars you like…it can spin out of control.

So if you want to get out and enjoy the cherry blossoms, tiptoe through the tulips or just have general fun in the sun, put away the electronics, get down to the task at hand and try not to get distracted. Ready, set, focus!

See you in the park…we’ll be the ones putting up the wedding arbor. Watch it with the frisbee. K?

Be well, and love well.
