Wedding planning is happening! 

My fiancé and I got engaged about two months ago, (you can read about it here), and we're just beginning to plan for the big day.

Some of my priorities during the wedding planning process are to take care of myself, be present and really enjoy planning the wedding and all the festivities, and to keep things low stress.  

Finances can be a huge source of stress any time, but can be even more stressful during wedding planning. Which is why we're being really mindful about saving for our wedding, our budget and the cost of the wedding.

I know money can be an uncomfortable topic, but our relationship with money and the stress that we allow finances to create are all connected to our health and overall well being. So I think it's worth talking about.

I feel more productive, more positive and less overwhelmed by my to do list when I work at home. I also take better care of myself when I work from home. I listen to what my body needs, and because I'm at home, I can give my body (and mind) breaks when needed. 

And let's be real...I wear my pajamas all day. There is nothing better than that!

I also love that every time I work at home it's totally different. So I thought I would share a peek into my work day at home.
