Everyone keeps telling us business owners we have to shout out about us, what we are (erh a human!), what we do (plan weddings and make them look amazing!) and our lives! (mine is pretty boring!)

So as I sit here patiently waiting for Santa to arrive before I can go to bed, I have been reflecting on the past week. (more…)
