I'm 25, a wedding planner, and a small business owner.
I have a little dog named Olive Duff, and a high-school-sweetheart-turned-husband just called Duff by his friends. I prefer Robert or a variety of other pet names that I highly doubt you want to know about.
I have just a small obsession with Taylor Swift (I'm warning you now). This is not a surprise to those who have been reading this blog for any amount of time.
I live five minutes from the beach, but haven't actually been in the ocean in ten years. I'm afraid of sharks. And dolphins. And seaweed.
We also live an hour from wine country. This gets dangerous.
I love pink, bows, and polka dots. I even have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to these things.
I started this blog officially in April of 2010, but I didn't actually do anything with it until November of 2010. I guess that makes it around 2 years old.
A few other things...
Interested in hearing how I became a wedding planner? Are you interested in learning more about what it takes to own your own business or be a wedding/event planner? Then you should subscribe to my newsletter (which has officially launched). I'm not going to lie, I get a lot of emails right now from people who are interested in wedding planning, and I honestly can't keep up! This is the best way to learn more, I promise.
Do you also love to blog about weddings? Then you should start linking up for Wedding Wednesday!
Are you getting married soon, and have a specific question about wedding planning? Email me and I would be happy to include it in a future Wedding Wednesday post.
If you're on Twitter, I want to connect! I'm constantly on Twitter, and would love to chat, really!
If you are looking for lots of wedding and design inspiration, then you should definitely follow me on Pinterest. I'm obsessed, of course.
I don't have a Facebook for the blog specifically, but I do have one for my company! I like to share wedding related things on there, and I rarely post the same things on Twitter and Facebook. In my mind, they are two different mediums and I want to treat them that way!
Oh, and do you love pictures of sweet little dog faces? Then you should follow me on Instagram. My username is JoelleDuff, and at least once a week I wish that my life were more interesting so I could post more. But for now, Olive Duff will just have to be my main subject.

Before you go, I was hoping that you'd help me out with something. You see, I created this little survey and I was hoping that you'd answer few questions for me. I always love learning about who is reading this little blog here, and why.
I would also love it if you would leave a comment telling me about yourself! Again, I love learning more about my readers, and I know that there are so many more people who read that don't comment.
So that's it! That's me and my blog in a nutshell! Thanks for listening today, and I can't wait for more great October posts!
