There are countless variables that determine the success, or lack thereof, of a given company. Having a needed, or desired, product or service is a crucial component, but beyond that, it’s all about the team. People are the masterminds behind organizations, and your company is directly affected by the cohesion and efforts of your team.
The first few weeks post becoming engaged fly by in the blink of an eye! Between friends, family, and co-workers wishing you well, engagement celebrations and the new chapter of your relationship you’ll hardly have time to consider the next steps!
But next steps there will be, and consider them you must! At least, if you want to have a wedding anytime soon! Regardless of whether you intend to get married in as little as six months or as long as two years, it’s helpful to have an idea of what needs to happen to get the ball rolling.
The holiday season is thick. It’s dense. It’s full of everything – parties, family gatherings, spending money, receiving and giving, eating, drinking, sharing stories, and, always, expectations.

There are so many details that go into setting the tone, ambiance, and flavor of an event. Food is fuel for our bodies and brains and is crucial to all that we do.

Each holiday season is ripe with traditions both old and new, for us all to enjoy with our loved ones. Truly, a tradition is something we choose and infuse with love, meaning it can be whatever you’d like!

November is a month of illumination. Between Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving, we get the entire month to dwell on one of the most important emotions – gratitude. Though we are thankful, grateful, and appreciative year-round, we are so excited to utilize November as not only a month for feeling grateful, but for taking action to show gratitude. As John F.
