Something to think about

Hi everyone,

How often in life are we convinced that skinny is the ideal body shape? I for one have never been skinny nor will I ever be, it's just not in my power. In order to be the "ideal" I would quite literally have to only eat celery all day and work out incessantly.

That being said I have decided to make an extra effort to drop a bit of weight for my wedding, more of a personal challenge than anything. The biggest encouragement however, came in a different sort of way from my soon to be hubby Neil. When I told him I wanted to lose some weight he encouraged me but asked that I don't lose too much as he likes chubby girls and that my little belly turns him on.

His words really made me think, as women are always trying to be slimmer because we think men will like us more if we are, but in reality there are lots of really awesome guys out there who like girls with some meat on them.

So here's to all the women that know that if a man really loves you he'll love you no matter what your size.

Best wishes to all of you.

Wedding madness

Hey Everyone,

despite the title of this post our planning has been going really well. We really agree on everything, we have most of the big details figured out and it's going to be amazing. We've decided on a winter wedding at Fort Calgary, so a nice historic building that's also supposed to be haunted, (there's a touch of Neil). It'll be relatively small, mainly close friends, fam and special people who've touched our lives.

We've also been talking a lot about our relationship and everything that has happened and where we see us going. It's really very exciting. It's great to look at my future hubby and to see unconditional love in his eyes, this really feels good.

Here's hoping all of you will be able to feel unconditional love.
Best wishes, Ev

Plan, plan, plan

Well the wedding planning has begun, here's a little secret we actually started planning before we told anyone. So far we've picked an awesome venue and a date, of course also colours, our wedding party and written up the guest list. I think we're doing pretty good for only being official for a week.

As always I also want to gush about my sweetie, who said to me last night when we were getting ready for bed and I quote "You are the best thing that has ever happened to me." It made my heart flutter.

So yeah, we're totally in love and getting hitched, tee hee.

The only thing I'm nervous about is all the planning, I've planned 300 person Galas before but never a wedding, so if anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

Kisses, Ev
