One of the most popular electives at my law school is Interviewing, Negotiations, and Counseling (INC).  Students learn the basics of interviewing parties, negotiating agreements and advising clients on their best options. It also has no final exam. I always wanted to take this course but something always got in the way.  Either it wasn't offered or I had other requisites taking my time. So, I'm taking the alternative route to INC: planning a wedding. Sure, it's not in the academic context, but its lessons are just as useful.

Vases were wrapped with pink ribbons, and teddy bears and greeting cards stood ready for purchase. Missing were the four drivers who had been scheduled to make about 100 deliveries the day before Valentine's Day, leaving the store scrambling during its most lucrative time of the year. "Some of my drivers can't even get out of their street," said Regina Davis, who owns the shop on North Charles Street with her husband, Jonathan.

I just met with my potential florist last night and I LOVE HER. She is the cutest woman (even at 8 months pregnant!). She was so easy to talk to. She was open to my suggestions and had some incredible ideas of her own.  I am not well versed with flowers or floral arrangements and she made me feel very at ease.  The best part is that I get to go with her to the wholesaler and pick which flowers and colors I like for the big day. How fun? Here is what I learned from our meeting: I need to do some serious Google image and Pinterest searches.
