Getting Things Done!

Happy Monday, Dear Readers!

I don't know about all of you brides, but I have so many things floating around in my head that I am starting to go a little crazy. So, I am going to list my current to do list (Wedding and other) in order to hold myself accountable and to hear any tips from any lovely readers out there! I am having some major anxiety about things to do in the next couple of months...
