In work news, the fall assignments are rolling in, and it’s a very happy sense of overwhelm. My friend Pam once said to me, “Don’t confuse your blessings and your burdens,” and I’ve always tried to keep that at the forefront of my mind. Brides and grooms planning their weddings, and their parents, would do well to keep that in mind too — yes, the swirl of activity and to-do’s is overwhelming, the emotions high, but a wedding is a blessing and not a burden. It just takes a shift in your perspective, some positive journaling with my Bride’s Gratitude Journal (www.sharonnaylor.net) and a daily reminder not to confuse those blessings and burdens.
Speaking of blessings, I’m happy to suggest to you www.DestinationBride.com, a site for those of you who are planning Destination Weddings. Lisa Light is the author of a book on the subject, and her site provides terrific articles on planning, packing your gown, coordinating your guests’ travel, and a smart currency converter, among other features. If you’re jetting out of town to marry, check out this site.
And also, check out my new bridal beauty article at www.carefair.com — I’ll be writing a series of articles on beautiful bridal looks, and I started with a 6-month bridal beauty countdown and an upcoming story on tooth-whitening for a fabulous smile. I welcome your requests and suggestions for future stories….
