Blah, blah, blah

I'm dry. I think I have nothing to say. As opinionated as I am I about pretty much everything, I can't think of anything wedding-ish to blog about. And that's crazy because all of my weddings are right around the corner, and I'm in the process of keeping my clients happy and sane. My clients are so cool and their weddings are going to be gorgeous, but I'm losing my inspiration to write. I try to get inspired by keeping up with all of the crazy good wedding blogs around and then I get writers block because I'm not as creative, funny, inspiring, or whatever as some of the rockstar bloggers out there. Seriously, some of them are awe.some. I feel like a chubby teenage girl looking at fashion magazines knowing that I'll never be that skinny!

I've been "Wedding Planner Amber" in my blog for so long, that to keep this thingy going I think I'm just going to be Amber. I'm Amber, and I happen to plan weddings for rad couples. I try my damndest to come across way more professional than I am. I lost a potential client the other day because an off handed joke slipped out before I could stop it (seriously, it wasn't anything inapropriate or bad, it's just that brides are so edgy when interviewing vendors that every word weighs 1,000 lbs). I'm only half as busy as I could be right now because my rates are not cheap enough or expensive enough. Sometimes I feel like a therapist more than a wedding coordinator, but as long as people still like me at the end of the day, I am A-OK with being their therapist. I really don't like using excessive !!!! and :) in my emails, but I kind of have to because my emails may come across harsh or sarcastic even though I'm being neither. I will never type LOL though, that's just too far over the line for me.

I'm not a workaholic. Some of my colleagues kick so much ass with everything that they do that I start to think I should be working more, but then I realize that I'd way rather go hiking or take a day off. My musician husband still thinks I work waaaaay to hard though. Oh, to be a true artist...

So this blog is going to be a little bit more realistic from here on out. I tired of playing perfect, ya'll.

**I had to censor and take out some of the things that I originally wrote in this blog because I can't be that open.

I love this post too!

"I feel like a chubby teenage girl looking at fashion magazines knowing that I'll never be that skinny!" - are not this person.

I'm surprised you get writer's block. I would imagine you'd have a lot to say.
