Today we have a post from Stephanie Florence, 40:20 Vision’s contributing / Millennial editor, reflecting on her role in recent weddings. ~ I’ve reached that age when my mailbox is filled with save the date postcards and wedding invitations.

I remember reading a study a few years back that asserted the age at which women reported being happiest in their lives was 33. I remember thinking “GREAT!” I have something to look forward to. Fast forward a few years and at 33, I have never been happier in my life, it’s true.
