August Resolutions or Holy Crapolla I’m Getting Hitched


Etsy planned my wedding. Seriously.

Oh my goodnesgracious it’s August.

August is a big month in my house.

My dad’s birthday is in August—Happy Birthday Virgos!

I got engaged in August (last year).

And this August I’m getting MARRIED!

This may leave you thinking, “Kim, what could you possibly be resolving for this month, you crazy over ambitious fool?”

 I’m so glad you asked.

My number one goal for August is to be married by the end of it. Hell, to be married by the middle of it. I like to keep my goals attainable and it’s looking pretty darn likely that that’s going to happen.  

My second goal for August is to finish all post-wedding hoopdy-doo by the end of the month; this includes putting our new stash of goodies in storage, or putting our old stash of goodies in storage to leave room for our new stash. One of the reasons I haven’t posted pictures in my apartment for a while is because it currently looks like a bomb of presents and wedding supplies blew up. Clutter makes me super anxious so this is a situation I want remedied ASAP. Also, things like name-changing (I’m staying Miller professional, but changing to The Fella’s name for personal life stuff) and of course sending thank yous to all the amazing folks who will be celebrating the start of the Schwartz family with us on August 10th

My third goal is to remain mindful and present and thankful for this moment in my life. It only happens once and I want to treasure every single second of it.

What are you resolving for August?

Do you have any last minute advice for this bride-to-be? 

What’s the best marriage advice you received? 



  1. I think you said the best advice, “enjoy every minute.” Another good piece of advice – have whomever is putting your gifts in the car have a roll of tape. That way if any cards fall off the gifts, they can tape it right back on so you know who the gift is from :)


  2. Mazal tov to you both! Your joyous news is a much needed respite. May your wedding be a harbinger for peace and safety in the world.


  3. Kim- congratulations! Remember the wedding is for a lot of folks – y’all, family, friends…and thats good….the marraige is just the two of you – you own it, you live it, you make it work, you get to enjoy it….here’s to the day after the wedding, its all yours…


  4. Congratulations! I hope everything goes without a hitch. You deserve all the happiness in the world ;)

    As for me, I hope this is the month I land a decent job. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll meet a lady that won’t tear my heart out & play soccer with it.


  5. A couple that had been married for 65 years told me that the secret is to keep it humorous. You have to be able to laugh at yourselves :-). And I LOVE Pinterest for wedding inspiration and just about everything else! I wish you the best!
