Today is my daughter's 1st birthday and to celebrate with her I left work early -- something I never do. It's important that throughout your engagement you take time out to enjoy other events in your lives -- birthdays, anniversaries as well as other happy occasions.
I once left my best friend's engagement party to bid on something on eBay that I thought I would want for our wedding. That was a mistake. I won the auction but never used the items.
Yes your engagement and wedding planning is a very exciting time in your lives but don't forget the other fun things in life that happen during this time.
