I often forget how close we are to Thanksgiving and Christmas because I’m still able to walk Rufio wearing a light jacket. These pretty 70-degree days are definitely throwing off my internal clock. Speaking of Rufio, I feel like we’ve really turned a corner with him in terms of training – he slept through the night for the first time, he’s eating more, and we taught him how to sit and lay down 🙂 This month also marked the first time I had to leave him to go on a business trip, and I worried about my little baby. Good thing our dog walker texts photo updates every day!

This year, we’ll be staying down south for Thanksgiving and having a “Friends-giving,” and I’m looking forward to the 4-day weekend to relax and cheer on the Panthers with my two boys. However, we’re already counting down to Christmas (I may or may not have started perusing the Christmas movies on Netflix) when we’ll be heading home to New York.

Here’s what we’ve been up to this past month:

ICYMI: Bridal Guide Magazine Articles

This past week was filled with late nights, working weekends and a lot of takeout. My agency is up for a campaign that required spec work, which translates into a lot of overtime. I spent more time with my creative team this past week than I did with my own husband – but hey, if you love the work, it’s worth it.

You know that moment at elementary school sleepovers when all the candy, popcorn and soda catches up to you, and you’re so sleep deprived that you’re just laughing at nothing and absolutely punch-drunk? We definitely hit that wall a few times this week. On the upside, I’ve never felt closer with my work BFFs.

Needless to say, I haven’t had time to write new blog posts. However, I did recently publish two new articles for Bridal Guide Magazine that I’d love to share with you all. They are variations of past posts, but now with post-wedding wisdom and perspective. I hope they help you no matter where you are in the wedding-planning process!
