Happy Monday, everyone!!  First things first, congrats to the 3 winners of Olive’s birthday giveaway: Vivian, Delia and May!  I’ve contacted the three of you so check your email so we can get your goodies out to you!  I’ll be sending out all the giveaway prizes (these 3 + the 2 winners of the Martha Stewart Weddings giveaway) on Thursday!

Today I’m thrilled to have a guest post up on the WhatToExpect.com Blog “Word of Mom.”  It’s a fun blog with original content from the WTE editors as well as real moms like me!  I was so honored when they reached out to me in January (I was in Big Bear at the time and remember squealing on the couch, in fact) and really enjoyed writing this post for them.  The post centers on 5 lessons I learned during my first year as a mom, and I’d love if you went over to check it out!

I’ll be back later this week with some wedding sneak peeks (yay!  So overdue!) and Olive’s official 12-month summary post!  Enjoy this beautiful day!

xoxo, Angel

    If event planning doesn’t work out for some crazy reason (you know if Martha Stewart doesn’t come calling again =], you have a true calling in writing. Beautifully written! I’ll be honest, it was refreshing to read that you learned a lot in those first months too b/c (from what I see via social media) you & Olive make it look so easy & carefree! My struggles w/ dialing down my perfectionist & control freak tendencies were the hardest part of this blessing we call motherhood. =] Thanks for renewing my perspective!
