Now, I could be using those savings and putting them into an account to eventually buy a house, but let's face it. I live in Santa Monica and it costs upwards of $700,000 to buy a one bedroom condo around here so a house is not in the cards right now. And while I am not blowing all the savings I am lucky enough to have from my sister's design work I am...let's say...reinvesting it.
Reinvesting in "the little things".
I learned this approach from my mother (like most things I talk about on this blog, let's get real, she's a saint). She never approaches a theme party or a gathering without going all in. Her motto, if you are going to do it, do it right. I prefer Ron Swanson's version, but it's the same concept.
So basically, I am going to "whole ass" this wedding. I am going to invest in the details. Take the design and the touches all the way.

Small, the boys aren't even going to notice it.
But if I am going to do it, I am going to do it right. The devil is in the details so get your magnifying glasses out...
