As I mentioned in my last blog post, COVID has really done a number on wedding planning for 2020 (among other things, as we all know).
My fiancé and I decided to get legally married now, even though we pushed our wedding date back to 2021. We still want to be married, sooner rather than later. After a backyard BBQ/wedding fell through, my friend offered her yard (and driveway), and we jumped at the chance. (My dad is in a wheelchair, so this is super-easy for him to navigate).
I don’t know where time goes, but here we are, the night before my wedding! What’s crazy is, even with the backyard/driveway wedding, there’s still a LOT to do — flowers, cake, dress, hair, nails, packing for the mini-moon, getting pets taken care of . . . the list just goes on. The last two weeks have absolutely FLOWN by, and my list seems to have gotten longer by the minute. I totally thought I would be relaxed and carefree, and I couldn’t have been more wrong.
I’m looking forward to the end of the quick service, officiated by my lifelong best friend (it’s her yard/driveway), to kiss my soon-to-be husband, have a glass of Champagne and relax. After the ceremony we’re heading to Stone Harbor, New Jersey, for a mini-moon at The Reeds, and I’m so excited to spend time unwinding by the beach. I definitely need it!
At the end of the day, as stressed as I may have been this week, I’m so excited to have found my person and to start our lives together. I’m lucky in life and love, and I couldn’t be more blessed.

Creating a wellness environment in the workplace is a terrific idea, and many companies acknowledge the benefits of providing health and wellness programs to employees. However, the concept is anything but new. More than a century ago, Johnson & Johnson offered its New Jersey-based employees access to an on-site health center and a fitness center with a swimming pool and basketball court. In the 1970s, the company followed with the launch of Live for Life, an on-site wellness program with “access to behavior modification tools and education on topics like nutrition, stress management and more.”
