While we’re always sure not to step on dear Thanksgiving’s toes during the holiday season, it is a sort of the opening ceremony for holiday cheer, gatherings full of joy, and lots of sugary treats. We’re not going to waste another minute, then, to invite you to our Seventh (!!) Annual Gingerbread Barn Building Competition!

This holiday tradition has become a favorite for us and for our competitors—we can’t wait to see how y’all up the ante this year! Anyone can come—so if you have a love of sugary holiday treats, a competitive spirit, and a festive apron, please RSVP! Most attendees choose to work in groups to build their gingerbread barns, so grab your friends, family, or fella and join in on the fun. (Just make sure everyone in your group purchases a ticket individually so we know how many graham crackers and icing to buy!)

Buy your tickets here.

Want to start scheming and need some gingerbread inspiration? Take a look at our past recaps:

Here’s a little something different for your Wednesday! :)

Amidst the flurry of excitement over our tenth anniversary issue (wheeee!), our team has been hard at work on something else, too.

Many of you know that we have a sister brand, Cultivate What Matters. All of our team members work on both brands, and we’re passionate about our mission, which is one and the same: to help women cultivate what matters, right where they are. At Southern Weddings, we’re coming alongside brides (y’all!) with encouragement and resources, and that is our joy!

At Cultivate What Matters, we get the privilege of speaking to women in all stages on life, in every role, in every season. The main way we do that is through the PowerSheets, our intentional goal planner. PowerSheets are truly perfect for all women, but we not-so-secretly feel they’re particularly perfect for our engaged friends. What season other than your engagement are you pulled in so many different directions, juggling so many different priorities, and above all, wanting to make really meaningful, impactful decisions with how you spend your time and resources?

Your engagement is a beautiful time of laying the groundwork for one of the best parts of life — marriage — and we think PowerSheets can help you do this.

If this is the first you’re hearing about them, allow me to introduce you!

PowerSheets work, and you’re going to feel the impact right away if you’re faithful to the process. PowerSheets help you prioritize with confidence, giving you more time for what’s truly important in your life.

More time spent walking in your unique path. Less time spent scrolling and comparing.

More time spent with the people who you love. Less time saying “yes” to things that don’t matter to you.

Thousands of women across the world have accomplished their goals using our three-part system:

Prep Work: the first 35 pages help you uncover your unique goals and what matters most to you
Intentional Action Plans: step-by-step action plan pages for each of your goals with S.M.A.R.T. starting steps
Monthly Tending Pages: Tending pages to help you live our your goals and actions plans each month!

2018 PowerSheets are an investment in yourself and your dreams, and in turn, an investment in your relationships with those who matter most to you. Setting good goals–cultivated goals–can have a ripple effect on your family, your children, your friends, your coworkers. You have the potential to impact your life, right where you are, starting today.

I hope that excites you. This is my fourth year using PowerSheets, and I can confidently say they have changed my life in so many ways. If you’d like to learn more or pick up your own set, visit our shop now! We can’t wait to cheer you on! :)

One of the greatest joys of my life is that I get to spend 40 hours a week working with women who are smart, talented, sweet, and hilarious. I think everyone on this team can agree that our personal and professional relationships with each other make up a good portion of the reason why we are able to do our jobs well. This makes us particularly excited to announce that we are hiring!
