Well let me tell you a little about myself and the reason I decided to start a blog. I was born into a very musical family and remember my parents singing for many occasions, specially my mom. I was a very young girl, and all four of us kids pretty much got to tag along. This happened so much that the parents started a children’s choir comprised of all of their children. It was such fun!
I’m a registered nurse. I work in the ICU and occasionally help out in the Interventional Radiology department as well as the Emergency Room. I love being a nurse and caring for both patients and families in times of crisis.
I sang in my first wedding when I was 10 years old as a soloist. I’ve been singing, planning, reading, organizing and making arrangements for various events ever since. In 2011, I had the pleasure and stress of planning my own wedding. I have to tell you, I painlessly planned the entire week. I took time off of work because many of our guests were from out of town. My wonderful husband helped with everything and anything I asked for. Would you believe that despite the planning, lists, and schedules there were still a few little blips (for a lack of better word) that could have been avoided had I not been the bride and had the capacity to carry out all of my meticulous planning? Do any of you have friends that say “If I don’t do it myself, it won’t be done right…or…If I don’t do it myself, it’ll never get done!”? Sometimes, I’m one of those. Regardless, we had a wonderful day and YES, I got to enjoy dancing and eating at my own wedding!
With that in mind, I wanted to help others with their special events of life’s beginnings, joys, struggles, transitions and even sorrows. I want to share real life experiences and simple solutions I’ve found help make these events less stressful and more enjoyable (if possible) for those charged with the responsibility of planning them. Feedback is encouraged and welcomed. Let me know if there is a particular topic you’d like me to discuss. I’ll be happy to help if I’m able or point you in the right direction.
