This is me, having a life outside of work. The last few years have been crazy and I didn’t think I could afford the time or energy to take time out in my life. I have decided everything has to change. I can’t do my work well if I’m burning the candle at both ends and I’ll never be able to really use my creativity, my energy, or my love to it’s fullest potential if I’m constantly maxed out. This year will be the busiest summer the company has seen and yet my calendar has some great things carved out for me.
May has been a crazy month. We got our first 4 weddings of the season out of the way and I spent a weekend in New York City celebrating my dear friend, Dana, and her single-hood before she is married in September.
And this memorial weekend was spent on a family trip to Chicago to see my future sister-in-law graduate from medical school. There are so many new adventures ahead for them!
Now it’s back to work, but I’m feeling refreshed and inspired. Marriages are all about making families. Whether it’s a family of just the two of you or a family of 6 (like mine), it’s a new family. I think there is no better way to be inspired to work hard for my couples and their families than to spend time with my family (and my friends that make up my extended family) and get back to what it’s all about.
Happy Memorial Day. Thank you to those that served our country so that I can enjoy the luxuries that come along with my freedom. I am eternally grateful for your hearts and sacrifice.
