More soup this week because it’s fall. About this time of year we all start thinking about the holidays to come: Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Not sure what any of those holidays will look like this year. Although I guess Halloween is canceled in College Hill. I breathed a big sigh of relief when I read that news from the neighborhood association. It feels like the responsible thing to do this year. So what will everyone do on Halloween night? Perhaps gather in very small groups? One friend suggested a candy hunt – similar to an Easter Egg hunt. That seemed like a fun idea.
This week’s recipe is a quick version of Italian Wedding soup. This recipe usually has meatballs in it, and sometimes a small pasta, too, which you could easily add. I found inspiration for this soup on Instagram. It was a list of ingredients, and I
Dear Amy: My fiance wants to invite “James,” his old college buddy, to our wedding.
James and I had a silly drunken fling prior to my relationship with my fiance. He knows about this and we have come to terms with it. Still, I regret my fling with James.
What’s more, I think he is a mean-spirited meddler. Years ago, he referred to me as “sloppy seconds” to my fiance.
Is it unreasonable for me to say that he can’t come to the wedding?

As obnoxious as “James” might be, my own perspective is that you simply not liking someone on your fiance’s list does not justify eliminating him altogether. However, that “sloppy seconds” comment
You’ve been planning it for months, if not years, and now that your wedding day is in sight there’s another spanner in the works. Your parents insisted you invite all the aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbours and in-laws under the sun but now thanks to Covid-19 you have the fun job of restructuring your guest list and whittling it down without hurting anyone’s feelings and without losing the special feeling that’s essential for a wedding day.
You’ll do something online, of course, but what? And how can you make those joining you over video feel like they’re right in the middle of the celebrations?
Wedding planner Kate O’Dowd of Love & Gatherings says couples impacted by restricted numbers should plan their day as if it was intended to be an intimate event with close family and friends. She thinks it is an opportunity to be even more creative on your big
In a perfect world, you’d never need to think twice about whether your wedding vendors mesh well—after all, they’re industry professionals focused on the same goal: your happiness. Well, most of the time. “Sometimes, people just don’t get along,” says planner Michelle Rago of Michelle Rago Destinations. “There is an advantage when a team is harmonious and they get along well and they are supporting each other in the outcome of your day. If somebody likes somebody, and they see something is wrong but it’s not their lane, they’re more likely to jump in and be a team player.” Incorporate these three tips into your wedding vendor selection process to create a team that works for you—literally.

A woman has called off her wedding to a ghost after he fell into a bad gang and started taking drink and drugs while they were holidaying together.
