Actually, she’s a wedding planner. She is planning my daughter’s wedding and I know it will be memorable in its elegance and panache. I like that word, panache. It has…panache. The wedding planner has panache, too. Check her out at Minted Artistry!
Soon, too soon, I am hosting an engagement party for the happy couple, and although I could do it myself (I’ve done several parties with minimal help), I have hired the planner to do the Engagement Party.
Confession is good for the soul, right? I am tired. Both of my adult children are getting married this year. We (which means me) am hosting large events for both occasions. My husband had a double lung transplant (yes, you read that correctly, what a saga) 18 months ago, and just spent two weeks in the hospital for a virus. I am administering IV medications to him at home while working very hard at promoting my blog, learning about social media, and taking webinars about sponsors and travel writing. (If you would like to hire me to review your hotel, your island, your vacation home, or your dive boat, I am at your command. Don’t worry about hubby, I’ll hire a nurse!). I still have two students to work with on college applications as I finish up consulting on college choices.
It is also time to consider downsizing. We have a very large home full of memories…but I am not sure it is right for us anymore. With my husband’s health and other issues it is becoming very difficult to keep up the house the way it should be. We need to paint; we need grass; and many of our doors have swollen and are not functioning very well. What do we do about that? If you have any suggestions on who to call, I’m all ears.
So, anyway, I hired a planner. This is me, taking care of me. With everything I am dealing with at the moment, I need all the help I can get. It is past time to put some effort into the care and maintenance of Tam. Cheers!
