Um…I LOVE this new Tumblr account (esp when they feature @toneitup) :)

I was so thrilled to join the Four Seasons yesterday for their special FSweds Wedding Showcase with my mom!
First, we joined for a VIP Luncheon, complete with bridal fashion show and amazing panel speakers.
The bridal fashion show was beautiful! I’m lucky I found my dress already, but if I hadn’t…this would have been amazing inspiration!
Our speakers were Marcy Blum (Marcy Blum Associates), Julie Sabatino (The Stylish Bride), Sade Awe (The Bridal Circle) and Kim Forrest (WeddingWire). They offered tons of great advice but here were a few gems…
- Really, the only things you NEED to do at your wedding are to get married and to feed people…and sometimes not even that. let yourself break from “tradition” and do some fun things you want to do.
- Your wedding vendors are your partners, not just vendors.
- Candles are a great wedding reception accessory - they instantly add a feel to the event. And they’re affordable!
And this one was just good business… - It’s not your job to tell your client no. It’s your job to find out how much it costs and then let them decide.
And don’t forget the lunch…YUM!!
Such a lovely event all to itself…but there was MORE!
After the luncheon, we were let loose to explore beautiful ballrooms/hallways full of amazing wedding vendors (partners)!
With our wedding so close (81 days away…but who’s counting...), we have a lot of things planned. BUT this was a great opportunity to think about other details!
HUGE thanks to the Four Seasons team for hosting such a wonderful day!
Recently, I stumbled on a project called 100 Happy Days. I was intrigued because I kept seeing the hashtag pop up all over social media, so I did a little digging and found out more.
From their website (I couldn’t have said it better): We live in times when super-busy schedules have become something to boast about. While the speed of life increases, there is less and less time to enjoy the moment that you are in. The ability to appreciate the moment, the environment and yourself in it, is the base for the bridge towards long term happiness of any human being.
The challenge: submit a picture of what makes you happy, every day. Sounds easy enough, right? But is it…?
Their website claims that 71% of people who tried to complete this challenge gave up. 71?! That kind of shocked me. Sure, I’ve tried/failed with some photo contests before but that seems crazy.
But then I started thinking about it. I am not immune to getting wrapped up in the craziness of every day life…sometimes I don’t even have time to make it to the grocery to get fresh food, or to eat lunch before 4pm, or to even read a little…I guess 71% doesn’t seems so outlandish after thinking about all of that. BUT I’m sick of the doom and gloom and stress. We all deserve to be able to be happy each day. :)
I’m doing this. Here’s my first few happy moments documented :)
Even if you’re not interested in the photo challenge part of it, I think the message behind this movement is solid. Take a moment. Take a break. Take a second (at least one) every day and be happy.
Have you heard of this challenge? Are you going to try it?
