Quick! I need your help!!

Okay loyal readers, I need some help. As you know, I'm starting my event planning business(!)

I'm starting a blog (and website) for said business and I want to regularly post 2-3 posts per week. I want to have the same type of post on the same day each week. For example, Utahbrideblog.com has 'flower Friday' every Friday (obviously).

So what 'themes' should I have? And on what days?

Thanks!! You're the bestest!!

Oui oui

I was turned on to my favorite blog, Jordan Ferney's Oh Happy Day, by toadie about two years ago. Until I started reading it, planning parties for a living and filling life with beautiful things was something I had never thought I could do. It was for fancier people with fancier, more fantastic lives than mine. I had an epiphany one day after reading a post of hers--nothing is stopping me from doing these things. The only person holding me back was me.

So, two years later, I'm following my dream--trying to build my business as a party planner and filling my life and our home with pretty things. Oh happy day(s) indeed:)

Here's hoping I can meet my life-changing hero in Paris later this year! She's running a contest and will fly the winner to Paris to meet her and share all the fun places she's been finding while living there with her husband and two cute little boys. Check out her blog (and don't feel weird if you go through every page, I totally did--she's an inspiration!) right here: http://ohhappyday.com/2011/06/goes-to-paris/

I am sooo cranky today. I have no idea why. Just miss cranky pants for no reason:|

I need a nap I think. Maybe that will help. I have exciting news that I just can't share while this grumpy.

Welcome to the Ratliff home. Probably don't breathe while you're here.

True story. Ugh. We can't both be sick!!! This is the worst idea in the history of ideas.

Back back back

I am ashamed. I keep letting letting letting myself not blog, saying I'll do it tomorrow, I have nothing to say today. Well to that I say, "bs self. You literally always have something(s) on your mind.". So. I'm back. From outer space. Or just the real world. And here is my first blog back:

"God expects you to have enough faith and determination and enough trust in Him to keep moving, keep living, keep rejoicing. In fact, He expects you not simply to face the future (that sounds pretty grim and stoic); He expects you to embrace and shape the future--to love it and rejoice in it and delight in your opportunities.

God is anxiously waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as He always has. But He can't if you don't pray, and He can't if you don't dream. In short, He can't if you don't believe." -Jeffrey R. Holland

Did you just get the chills in the 'holy-cow-i-need-to-stop-holding-myself-back' style? I totally did. So if you don't kind, I'm going to get to dreaming:)

See you tomorrow--PROMISE.
