    How my Covid-19 wedding changed my view of what matters most

    How my Covid-19 wedding changed my view of what matters most

    Every little girl dreams of how she wants her wedding to be. A huge party, a big cake, lots of flowers, good music, and of course tons of dancing. This was all required for my dream wedding and as silly as it sounds, there was no way I was going to get married without it. If you would've told me a year ago that I would end up getting married in my living room with only a few close family members and friends, I would've thought you were crazy. Turns out maybe I'm the crazy one because, that's exactly what happened.

    My Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Wedding

    My Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Wedding

    Wedding season is upon us. Pinterest is pinging. Registries are ringing. Seamstresses are... seaming. You see where I'm going with this. Myself, I'm helping plan my best friend in the whole wide world's wedding for June 2020, and my vow renewal for September 2020. It got me thinking about my wedding nine years ago. When we plan out weddings, we all want everything to go off perfectly, and we kill ourselves creating a perfect day. Not everything always ends up perfect, though. In the case of my wedding, only one thing actually went according to plan: I married my husband. Sit down, I'll tell you all about it.
