Next weekend, my parents are coming to visit me in my current [temporary] town in Upstate NY. In typical parent fashion, my mother suggested that I plan the itinerary for the weekend, which required me doing a little bit of research about things to do in the area.

Lists on Lists on Lists: Trello and how it saves me every day
I was told this week that I had the most meticulously kept notebook list a coworker had ever seen - I highly doubt this is true, but it made me stop and think about the strides I've made to keep myself and my thoughts in order.

The Wedding Vision – 2017
This is going to be one of those posts that I'll reflect back on when I compare my 2017 goals to my 2019 reality. I can tell you that much before I even write it.

Blogging is something I have been wanting to start for a long time now, and yet I still have no idea where to "start". I guess I'll start with hello. Welcome to my unorganized, scatter-brained repository of all the things I'm planning or coordinating. Many posts will be dedicated to my wedding (May 2019) or … Continue reading Welcome!
