2018 will forever be known as “The Year of All the Life Changes” for me. While 2017 was HARD… 2018 was hard in a different sense. 2018 proved to be the year of a few answered years-long-waiting prayers. It proved to be full of big life events and blessings.

I meant to write this post a long time ago, but time got away from me. Time’s a funny thing. You can’t get it back. It’s precious. My 20s were full of ups and downs, of unexpected and expected things. I did a lot of things on my Bucket List, and there are things I still haven’t done. So in order to be a little more intentional, I’m creating and posting my 40 Before 40 List… since I’m already, ahem, in my 30s.

Call me crazy, but I love mornings. I haven’t always been this way. But the busier my life gets, the more I crave routine, and that always starts with my mornings. I love routines. I love list making, and I love creating systems that make life easier. And in the hustle and bustle of life, or — ahem, wedding planning — a little routine can make a world of difference.

I’ve planned a bunch of weddings. I’ve worked with a lot of the best brides and grooms. I’ve helped couples make many decisions. I’ve set a lot of tables, straightened many veils, and found the right words to convince many flower girls and ring bearers to walk down the aisle. I’ve stood in the background and witnessed many couples exchange vows, make lifelong commitments to each other, and then spend the rest of the evening laughing, dancing, and celebrating with some of their closest friends and family.

Some of my favorite memories as a child involve books. My dad used to read books to us, and my favorite memories revolve around him using those special voices to serve as certain characters. I had every single copy of The Babysitter’s Club and almost every single copy of Nancy Drew as a child.
