The Sunkissed Life


Jahara Stevenson

So anyone who knows me, knows I am a wine drinker. Nothing fancy, you know the cheap, young adult, just enough to matter, bubbly stuff. Champagne and juice, that kind of good stuff. It has officially been 4 full days and I finally have a full grasp of exactly what the next 9 months will look like. My overly organized and detail oriented self needs to see everything in writing 15-20 times. I know that's a tad obsessive, but it works for me. So far I have made a very extensive checklist and started organizing the chaos. I must say the length of the list and the vast amount of details I have managed to outline just are a quick representation of how I will miss absolutely nothing when it comes to planning this party. Let's be honest, that's what this is going to be. My wedding will be the most romantic and best party my friends and family have ever experienced. The key to this whole thing is to strategically and craftily budget and save in areas that I can and plan accordingly so that  I can be crafting for the next 7 months and not have anything left to the last minute. PSH. Lets be honest, the real key is to always have wine. If I can plan effectively, everything will go so smoothly. Minimizing stress one bottle of wine at a time. Wine just makes it all better. Stressed out addressing a million and one envelopes? No problem! Pour a huge glass of bubbly and all of a sudden I have all the momentum in the world. Needless to say, to keep me from being a bridezilla, keep the wine stocked and everyone can be saved by the wine!
