What Matters To Me

This is something I’ve spent many occasions thinking about over the years. But then doesn’t everybody?

So when I got an email from John Lewis asking me this very question , I wanted to write about this from my heart. As much as I could talk about weddings {I never ever tire of it!} but when I read other blogs, I love to know more about the person behind it, so I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you more about me and right now ‘What Matters To Me’.

We’ve all been asked ‘What would you save if your house was fire’, right? Well, my list is endless especially when I am a little hoarder(!)… but of course there are some things which are much more important than others. My husband and Pugsie-pooch are equally important to me and they are my number one when it comes to me and our home; although I’m pretty sure Pugsie would save her bag of food first. And all the photographs which live in our home – every single one of them. Right now I have many family albums I’ve carted back from my Mami & Dad’s home only recently because I wanted to sit on the living room floor and re-live my childhood. Then there’s all the prints I’ve done over the last few years… but not forgetting all the photos on my computer and hard-drive. Oh my goodness, where would I stop?!

As I sit in my Carm Workspace {aka the home office} typing this, I’m thinking about the possessions in and around the whole house. Yes, most items all are sentimental pieces – they mean so much to me and they’ve helped me shape my life. Some have guided me to discovering what my likes and dislikes are and I guess, makes me who I am.

From the stacked-up-high-almost-to-the-ceiling pile of magazines {I’ve always been a mag addict} to the wooden burnt name that one of my sweet brides made for me, then there’s the handbags and the clothes and the shoes… and all my work diaries from over the years. I keep them so I can look back at where I was this time 5 years ago. Just for fun : )

If you’re a bride reading this and thinking about my actual work, like all the planning worksheets that comes with my job, well you’ll be pleased to know all the planning work now sits in Cloud. All backed up and safe somewhere no matter what.

So now you know a little about what matters to me… how about you?

If you’ve not already seen the John Lewis competition with their very creative and clever video, take a look here – you could also win £1000 in John Lewis’ vouchers or a fab Canon SLR camera! As soon as I get chance, I’m going to really challenge myself on Vine with this – a little fun challenge it may be but my, I’ll see what I can do in those 6 seconds! I hope to see your Vines very soon too.

Have a fab day my busy friends and don’t forget for one moment  today just stop and think about what matters to you. So on that note, I’m just off for a quick cuddle with the pooch xoxo
