You Deserve It: How to Treat Yo’Self in the Midst of Wedding Planning
by Sara Haugland October 8
If you’re a bride-to-be who’s been looking for a reason to treat yourself, take this as your sign to go for it! You (yes, you!) deserve to treat yo’self, not just today, but every day. You’ve earned a break from wedding planning, and there’s no better way to utilize that time than filling it with things that bring you joy. Buy the flowers, eat the desserts and have a spa day – making yourself a priority in any way is oh-so important, especially in this crazy time time we’re in. We’re taking major inspiration from Donna and Tom in Parks and Rec, as it’s time to “Treat Yo’Self” with some of the best vendors North Texas has to offer!
