    Must do's - Getting Married

    By: Candice Worsfold

    I got married last month and we appreciated a solid week of enjoying our friends and family surrounding us from across the province, and some international guests. I thoroughly loved the entire engagement and wedding planning process, but I’m also super happy not to be dreaming about forgetting corkscrews any longer, or having various sticky notes with “to do’s” plastered everywhere.

    Moving home or Moving on

    There is a lot of talk about students moving back in with their parents as adults. I really don’t think it’s fair to criticize or generalize an entire generation into a one-size-fits-all category. Many articles focus on the negatives, on millennials and how they aren’t moving on from their parents’ basements. Here’s why I don’t think that’s always a problem and, in fact, can be a great jumping-off point for newly graduated students.

    When I’ll pay more

    Most of the time, I’m looking for the best deal. Getting the biggest bang for my buck. Getting more while spending less. You know, no one wants to pay more for something we can get cheaper somewhere else. However there is a time, and a place, when I’m willing to pay more.

    When I need reliable service. I own a home, and we try our best to learn how to fix things ourselves. Recently we visited a large store, and waited quite a while for someone to help us with getting all the materials to install pot lights. Having never done it before, we were willing to wait to ask the “expert”. We asked lots of questions about which lights required which installation pieces; however within 15 minutes of getting home we realized we didn’t have everything we needed.

    Good Intentions

    I think we all have dreams of what and when we want to achieve something; what we want our savings to look like, when we want to purchase a house, or when we want to retire.

    Starting today is far better than having good intentions.

    I recently started working with a personal trainer to take my health and fitness goals to the next level. Over the past 8 months I’ve changed habits, learned that what I thought was “healthy” maybe wasn’t, and worked out differently than I ever have before. If I hadn’t taken the first step 8 months ago to try something different, I wouldn’t feel the way I feel today. Over the past month when I feel like I had an off day, or didn’t give it my all, I remind myself of what I was doing a year ago. My worst exercise and nutrition days now look similar to the best ones I was having before. My habits have totally changed, and I’m doing things naturally with little effort.

    Wedding Planning: keeping it simple

    As I mentioned in a blog post a few weeks ago, I’m getting married this fall. It’s been a very exciting time, and we couldn’t be more excited to have our closest friends and family join us to celebrate our marriage.

    I truly believe what each couple wants on their wedding day is unique to them. Our vision is to celebrate with a small group of people who have impacted both our relationship and our lives. We have a few ideas that are important to us, and we are focusing on making sure those things happen.
