Happy new year!
January 6, 2009
I hope everybody had most happy holidays and that you are all enjoying a great start to the new year!
I had a wonderful holiday season which included going home to (snowy!!) Portland to be with my family on Christmas. It always feels so nice to go home and spend such a cozy time with family. We got snowed in at my parents house so we spent the time watching old home movies (much to my embarrassment- my husband still teases me about some of the footage..) eating, playing board games (my dad reigns balderdash champion for the 4th year in a row..) and just being together. It feels great to be back in LA though (where the weather is much more forgiving!) and kick off 2009. It is such an exciting year ahead with some incredible weddings lined up. Also, it is a new year for the blog- as always, I resolve this year to be a better blogger and would love to hear what sort of posts you would all like to see more of! (Aside from of course, more posts!) Leave a comment and let me know- more real weddings, inspiring ideas, interviews, non-wedding things (gasp!), etc.! Can't wait to hear.
And because every post should have a photo-
The sweet Max, my parents' labradoodle- playing in the snow on Christmas..
Happy New Year! I don't think there is one wedding you've planned that I haven't loved. The real weddings are definitely my favorite.
I love to see your real wedding features! I also would like to see any crafty projects you're working on for your weddings. You are so creative : )
You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.
I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
