My Word For The Year 2015: Love

I have been playing along with the 'word of the year' on Maxabella Loves for a few years now and I just love the concept behind focusing on one element and one word to aspire to for the next 365 days.

My previous words for the year are: 2012 Decision, 2013 Embrace and 2014 Motivate

For 2015 the word that popped into my head instantly was LOVE

Getting engaged on our cruise holiday just 2 months ago certainly brought that word to the forefront of my mind. Saying YES to Mr P to spend the rest of our lives together and choosing to be in love forever and ever which is a very long time you know!

It would be so nice to stay in that love bubble of excitement straight after the engagement but soon enough it was time to get down to business and start planning our big day and our friends and family were asking us questions we didn't have the answers too ..... When's the wedding? Whose in the bridal party? Garden or Church? Band or DJ? Just elope to Las Vegas!

With so many things to plan and think about I can see that love bubble get pushed to the back as the business side of things come to the front but I'm determined to not let that happen.

This year is going to be all about the LOVE

I'm not going to sugar coat it, planning our lovefest is going to be hard work, stressful and daunting especially for me as I'm feeling the pressure already to have everything absolutely amazing, magazine quality, perfection.

I know I bring that on myself because I love party planning and this is by far the biggest party of my life so the pressure is on to make it just that!

BUT I am reminding myself it's about the LOVE

I want to make decisions this year based on how I feel inside, and how it represents Mr P and I. I don't care for fancy limousines, or a designer wedding dress, I just want to share in special moments and memories with Mr P by my side and surrounded by family and friends.

The reality is we don't have a lotto winning budget and even if we did I don't want to spend it on "one day". A wedding doesn't have to be expensive to be memorable.

The Do-It-Yourself in me thinks that I can tackle a lot of the wedding plans myself and I will for the most part but there's a fine line I don't want to cross and DIY myself silly and forget I was meant to be having fun along the way.

All you need is LOVE

So every time I'm on my Pinterest pinning like a crazy love struck engaged bride to be to bring all the ideas and inspiration together that I love, I have to remind myself that I can't do it all and that the most important thing to focus on this year through the engagement and wedding and our honeymoon and then our life together is ....

Mr P and I and our LOVE for each other

So bring on the lovefest I say! I'm so happy and excited for what lies ahead this year and it's not just about Mr P and I, but it's also bringing both our friends and families together too, which is really special.

My goodness I don't think I've ever written anything so mushy before, I'm all warm and fuzzy inside now, but think I'd better go and hang some wallpaper or paint something!

I'm exciting for my word for the year ..... Bring on the LOVE!

What's your word for 2015?
