Happy New Year! and Never Throw Rice at a Pisces


Happy New Year everyone! I’m sure we have a lot of newly engaged brides tuning in, since the holidays are the biggest time for proposals, so welcome!
Chad and I had a great holiday and just came back from a lovely weekend in Washington DC with my family, but I’m definitely happy to be home and get cracking on wedding projects…these months have really flown by!!! I look forward to finally getting to share some of the projects I’ll be tackling….but how about we get things started with a little contest?

I used to be really into astrology when I was younger….always trying to find what signs were compatible with my indecisive Libra tendencies and see if the stars really could define me. That all ended up as a childhood phase, but when I was recently sent a copy of Stacey Wolf’s Never Throw Rice at a Pisces, I had to revisit and see how accurate it could be….and boy, was it! Stacey had me pegged from the very beginning!! [especially with my expensive taste issue!] I strive for balance in all my decisions, everything must interrelate and be in visual harmony, and I hate fighting over decisions!!

This book would make a fun gift for the new [or already established] brides in your life….and I just happen to have an extra copy! So from now until Sunday, January 6, leave a comment below with your astrological sign, and I will randomly pick someone to win the copy….winner will be announced on Monday. Good luck!
