engagement = parties

While being engaged is a special time in any girl’s life, the decision-making and planning goes into overload as your day approaches.  So when it’s time for the showers and parties to start, it’s usually just what a girl needs to actually enjoy being engaged!  The celebrating starts way before you walk down the aisle and you should soak it all up!  Here are two posts I wrote recently for lifestyle & leisure blog that give you some ideas on how to party in style…

I will always treasure the memories I have how my gracious friends showered me with lots of good times and gifts! Have you been to any really fun showers or engagement parties?
