A blog is a lot like a marriage (stick with me for a minute)….it takes daily attention to keep it fresh, it requires a long-term commitment, and it’s extremely fulfilling when you get it right! While I love my blog (and readers) dearly, the busy wedding season has caused me to be a very bad blog-spouse the last few months. Sure, it’s gotten some good updates over the months, but I know deep down that it hasn’t gotten the attention it truly deserves (and that I love to give it!)

I know many people say that if you haven’t been a faithful blogger, you shouldn’t mention it to your readers, but instead, just start writing again. Don’t get me wrong, I think this is brilliant insight, and makes a lot of sense. However, I’m a big believer in putting something out there, so that you can be accountable.  So, my lovely blog readers—I’m making an on-the-record commitment to blogging every single day (Monday-Friday) for a month, starting on Monday! We’ve wrapped up our 2009 wedding season, and I’m looking forward to looking back on what we loved for 2009, and to discussing what we’re looking forward to in 2010! We’ll share new trends, show our favorite ideas from 2009, introduce you to fabulous local vendors, and keep you up-to-date on all things wedding in Southwest Michigan!

As always, I would love to hear from all of you, and you are always welcome to email in with your questions on planning, etiquette or weddings in general to jessica@stellaeventdesign.com! Next week we’ll be talking about beautiful table coverings, sharing pictures from a stunning August wedding at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Notre Dame (a must-see if you’ve never seen this amazing location), and we’ll be announcing some fun upcoming events & giveaways to celebrate our 2 year birthday as a business!
