To Do Lists

I love to do lists. Some people hate them, but I love them. I make them for home, work, anything. I even have one… yes for the wedding. I know there is some controversy over wedding to do lists. I understand the stress that to do lists (and the absurdity of most of the wedding industry lists) can cause. However, I don’t follow those lists. I wouldn’t follow a Good Housekeeping list to clean my bathroom, so I wouldn’t follow a list from The Knot to plan our wedding. I do separate it out into months, but I’m not tied down to my list. Here’s why I make my list the way I do. I don’t want to forget things. I make into steps so that I feel like I’ve accomplished something even if it’s not really that much, and it’s flexible. If I don’t finish a task (or start it) in April.. well it will be moved to May. And if I finish an October task in April.. well awesome. So, for me my list keeps me organized and makes sure I get everything done, but it also helps make me feel good because I feel in control. Now my actual list is long, but I thought each month from now until the wedding.. I’d share my to do list with you for the month.
