No news is not always good news

Well I've been away for quite a while. Life has its ups and downs. Apparently, my life is quite the roller coaster. I am, however, tired of the motion sickness so I need to do what I need to do in order to keep things running more smoothly. And one of those things is adhering to my diet and exercise plan. No more cheating!

So while I'm getting back on the healthy wagon, I want to talk briefly about what's happening in the world. Since the events that happened in France on Friday (which happened to be my father's birthday) I have been appalled at what I've seen on Facebook. Some of those comments got me pretty heated. And I was very close to replying to some, just looking for a fight. But then I stopped.

I realized that I do not need to go on someone else's fb page and start a fight with them for what they've said in a moment of anger. I do not need to bring more emotion to the table. What I need to do, is help people. I am a helper by nature. So I will offer this: If you need to rant, do it. If you need to scream, do it. If you need to talk, do it. Call me.  I can teach you techniques to help relieve stress and make you feel a whole lot better. I can help you make some sense of your emotions.  But I cannot help you make sense of senseless killing. I cannot find any sense in killing anything.
OK I lied. I'm not posting nearly as much as I'd like to. I'm not going to psychoanalyze myself. But I will say that all of us need to do more to make ourselves happy.

I hope to see you again soon.
Alright then. I haven't posted in ages. I'm not exactly sure why so I won't look to make excuses. However, I'm hoping I can post more often from now on.

I can say I'm very happy that I'm making new contacts and meeting new couples. This has to be the greatest job in the world.

Busy busy busy...

Well time is flying!  Lots to do and of course, never enough time to do it.  I did, however, find the time to add a new package.  If you check the ceremonies page, I added a new package called "I Do".  Please take a peek.

Wow isn't life funny? So much has been going on that its hard to get online and share it all. There are many positive things happening and I'm so happy to be able to share them with all of you.
