Birthday Gratitude at the La Prairie Spa

Birthday Gratitude at the La Prairie Spa

I know you’re supposed to zone out and relax during massages, but they’ve historically been when my mind revs up and I’ve done some of my best thinking. Today, during my birthday massage at La Prairie, I took stock of the past year and marveled at how much of my life has changed for the better.

One year ago today, I’d just flown back from New Zealand, where I was enjoying my Summer of Jolie Fake Honeymoon 2012. As I started 2013, I decided to forget about guys for a while and date my friends, instead. I wondered if I was even the marrying type, not imagining that I’d ever meet a guy ready for alllll this (mental) jelly.

And then BAM: I met E. Almost instantly, my life changed. Three months later, we were engaged.

Our wedding date is three months from today.

Introducing our Wedding Coordinator: Merryl Brown Events

Introducing our Wedding Coordinator: Merryl Brown Events

The wedding planning has begun!

When we got engaged, E. and I decided that we didn’t want a complex wedding. We wanted something elegant, we wanted something small, and neither of us had the time (or the expertise!) to bring our hopes and vision to life.

It was quickly decided that we needed a wedding planner. I mean, this stuff is a full-time job.

Enter Merryl Brown Events.

A Weekend in Atlanta with Papa Jolie

A Weekend in Atlanta with Papa Jolie

This weekend was not only an excuse to hang with Papa Jolie and to introduce E. to various members of my family, but also to attend my 15 year high school reunion.

I was emphatically not popular in high school, so even though I’m older, wiser, cooler, cuter, what have you, I entered that reunion reception and I IMMEDIATELY felt like a dorky 14 year old with bad skin.

High school insecurities never really leave you, huh?

Ramble: Hello from Atlanta, Thank God It’s August, and our Bliss and Bone Save-the-Dates!

Ramble: Hello from Atlanta, Thank God It’s August, and our Bliss and Bone Save-the-Dates!

E. and I are finally settled into our home and have most of the boring stuff (scanning paperwork, unpacking boxes, setting up new accounts, trying to keep things from falling through the cracks) behind us. Now begins the fun: wedding planning!

We received our Save-the-Date cards a few days ago, which now makes the wedding seem real. T-minus 3.5 months…! We’re working with Bliss & Bone, a brand-new, luxury wedding service that creates high-end, customized websites, Save-the-Dates, Invitations, inspiration boards, and collateral like place cards, coasters, napkins, thank you notes and more. I’ll be blogging more about our work with Bliss & Bone as we plan, but in the meantime, check them out here at Bliss and Bone and get a peek of their gorgeous work!

The Return of the Ramble Posts! (Or: I’m Finally Going to Finish My Damn Book)

If you believe in Myers-Briggs profiles, I’m a classic ENTP when it comes to my work style: full of great ideas, terrible at follow-through. My report cards consistently spoke of how “Jolie starts with a bang and ends with a whimper.” Learning how to finish a project when the going gets tough (and the tough […]
