One of my slightly less wonderful qualities is my need to get things right the first time. It’s obnoxious and annoying, especially for Mr. Feather, who has to put up with my teeth gnashing and hair pulling over silly problems. Ugh. Sorry, Mr. F.
However, wedding planning has been great for teaching me not to sweat the small stuff. I’ve already changed my mind about our ceremony venue, spent two weeks on a task I thought would take me two days, and learned that dresses can take six months or more to make.
Despite all of this learning…guess what? I’m still making mistakes. Most recently, I learned the difference between white and ivory the hard way.
