Sam and I watched the Netflix documentary "Minimalism" over the weekend which is a film exposing the over glorification of stuff and focusing on the important things. There were testimonies from people talking about how removing excess materialistic things from their lives has led them to better physical and mental health while enriching the relationships with people around them. It was a fascinating watch! I came home, looked around and it took everything in me not to purge most of my belongings.
One of the most highly anticipated parts of wedding planning for us has been the food tasting. What we didn't realize is that it is much more complicated than just picking your favorite foods and creating a menu. First, we discussed what our vision regarding dinner style was. You want to ask yourself if you want a plated dinner, buffet style, family style, cocktail style reception or food stations. Side note: I'm not a plate connoisseur, there may be other options, these are just the ones I've been exposed to.
It's January and like everyone else, new or improved actions are in full effect. Living a healthier lifestyle will forever be a goal of mine, and until it's mastered I'll always raise the bar to challenge my body some more. I started last year in the gym 5-6 times a week with great results until the fiancé proposed and we were celebrating with food every day...and then there were the holidays. Welp. I found excuses until I lost everything I physically gained.
