The Sunday Skim



After a vendor retreat in early November, I realized I need a space where I can share more of my personal life that's off-topic from the wedding planning scene - a post dedicated to outfits and recipes, to business behind-the-scenes and family holidays and vacations.  

Sunday feels fitting because it's the day I take to reset before the week begins. So, I'll be sharing seven notable details from the week in The Sunday Skim. 

No. 1

Clyde met Santa!  And, well, as you can see it wasn't love at first sight! 


No. 2

We attended our first Friendsgiving vs. Thanksgiving! Traveling with a toddler isn't easy and our families live out-of-state.  So, we vowed to stay home, avoid the headache and spend time with our Nashville friends.  Bryan smoked a turkey on his Big Green Egg and we ate ourselves to misery.


No. 3

I had a site visit this week with clients, Elaine and Mike, to measure their yard and dream up where they'll actually get married on the property!  They're getting married at their family home in early April!  I'm such a sucker for a private residence wedding.  Something about coming home every year to the place you were married - super special. 

Clyde's First UT Game

No. 4

We've been in Tennessee for three years now and finally made it to a University of Tennessee football game in Knoxville!  I joked this was Clyde's first visit to his alma mater.  We'll see what the next 17 years hold! 


No. 5

Black Friday sales were in full swing!  I hit up Murchison & Hume for my favorite hand soap and household products!  

No. 6

I'm shopping for all our friends and family over the next few weeks so enjoying the holidays doesn't feel like such a chore.  For the last few years, our beautiful tree skirt has sat empty because I don't wrap gifts until the day I give them.  I've picked my paper to match our tree, and I'm getting a head start this year. 

No. 7

My personal style in my wardrobe, in my home and for most weddings is neutral.  But, something about Christmas brings out all the color, and I just can't avoid RED! Embracing red for the holidays and buying neutrals to help offsite all this color.
