This year I'm calling it like it is -- before it even happens. Behold my official holiday schedule, the way it's really going down.
There are millions of articles out there, and plenty of conflicting pieces of information. Truthfully though, if planning a wedding was just as easy as surfing the web, then planners, including yours truly, would be out of a job.
It doesn't have to be awkward. Really.
Parties are one of life's true pleasures, but planning them can be a real problem. After all, there's food to prepare, a
