2012 Word of the Year: Persevere

24 Jan

Inspired by Ali Edwards, I have chosen my word of 2012: PERSEVERE.

Persevere: to persist in anything undertaken.

For some reason, this word suits me. It means that when things are challenging, you keep going. When you don’t know where your next step is, trust God and take a step forward.

Persevere. Keep going. Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.

Do you have a word of the year? I’d love to hear what you’ve chosen to inspire you this calendar year.

Why You Need a Wedding Planner

5 Jan

I’ll be honest, when I was a bride-to-be, I didn’t even consider hiring a wedding planner or coordinator for my wedding. Like everyone else I knew who had been married, I relied on family and friends pitching in to get things done and on myself to get the bridal party and family at the right place at the right time. While this did not end in disaster or remotely close to it, I look back on the logistics of the day and often wish that I had someone (apart from family & friends) to make sure things were in order on the day-of.
