I’d say now, especially if the new date is 6-12 months away. It would brighten their day, for sure!

If you have the means, I’d say now.

I would send it now.

Send it now. Assuming a justice of the peace is officiating a ceremony. It’s the real deal so send now.

Tired of being shamed by family for the precautions I’m taking to ensure my family, including 2-month-old, are not putting ourselves in any situation that may cause unnecessary risk of contracting covid. Was called selfish for not attending a bday party (ironic), was made to feel bad when I asked family (who had travelled to Florida for fun, gone out to bars/restaurants, etc.) to get tested before coming to see the newborn. Just be respectful of how others are dealing with the pandemic, please!

Looking to lose 10-15lbs that I had gained during covid. Going to a wedding in 2.5 months that is my main motivator. The past 2 weeks I have been doing well - tracking what I eat, buying healthier groceries and working out 5x a week. Then Easter hit and I went to my family’s lunch, and ate way too much unhealthy food. My mom sent me home with lots of food which I ended up eating most of yesterday. Didn’t workout either days. How can I stop myself from spiraling? Usually I’d give up at this point
