I've been married 3 weeks now. People keep asking me how it feels. My answer: I don't feel any different now than I did before, except that it's fun and totally weird (in a good way) to use the expression, "...my husband" in conversation. Joe and I are overwhelmed and honored and humbled by the support and love all of you have shown us. There is no amount of thanks possible to share our gratitude. I know our wedding journey on my FB page began to rival the 'Luke & Laura' saga on GH. Ha! But joy has a funny way of making you gush 24/7. For those of you who aren't on FB and didn't see t...

It's our last wedding Wednesday (but something NEW is coming nxt wed) and it has me wanting to say THANK YOU. Your love and joy for me and Joe has been amazing. Joe and I are eternally grateful. Thank you for letting me gush and bore you w all the pictures and details. This picture is of all the well wishes people wrote on tiny cards at my wedding.
They then hung the cards on a rope w laundry clips (think rustic barn chic). My fav piece of marriage advice was, "never underestimate the power of, 'I'm wrong, you're right, I'm sorry'". The rules were, "please write on a card one place we shoul... Continue Reading

It's Wedding Wednesday...and as the big day nears, I thought I’d share a pic of a cross I'm giving as favors. It’s a holding prayer cross from Bethlehem, Israel ….. so special to me.
Also, wanted to share a story/reading our Pastor Pat gave us. It is such a wise, heartfelt, humble, honest reading. If only we could all master this, we probably would never struggle in our love relationships. It's called Different Drummers ~
If you do not want what I want, please try not to tell me that my want is wrong. Or if my beliefs ... Continue Reading

It's Wedding Wednesday ... i wanted to share a photo of me tasting food at our wedding menu tasting dinner.
These r the most sinfully good gnocchi. I'm not kidding, better than anything I have ever tasted in Italy. Joe is Italian so a little pasta is def on menu. Plus, for my dad we will have lemon bars, for me tuna tartar, for mom tenderloin w blue cheese...and in honor of my brother (my "man of honor" who used to live in Boston) mini lobster rolls. Do u remember what u ate at ur wedding? Continue Reading

Freak snowstorm cracked me up. I waited all winter for snow (I love it; if I could live in Switzerland or lake Placid, I would) and then it comes...WHEN I'M READY FOR SPRING! I had already put up my Bethlehem Lights hanging prelit flowers. I joked with my wedding coordinator that if Mother Nature throws me a curve ball on my upcoming wedding and brings a freak storm again, I don't know what I'll do!!! :)
Mom's bday was on 23rd. I sent her a huge angel statue I got from my fav dept store (you know, the one with valet parking). Mom deserved a splurge. She's nervous about the big wedding bc sh... Continue Reading

It's WW again...time is ticking til big day! Went to cake tasting recently. Man is this tough. Buttercream icing, regular frosting, cream cheese frosting.. AHHHHH!!!! There r so many choices.
Am leaning towards cinnamon cake or red velvet. Old fashioned simple delish. Want cake to look like old southern grandma living in farmhouse w country kitchen and wrap porch, just put on her apron and whipped it up! (Wow, I've created quite a backstory to this simple cake)
what flavor was ur cake? (And did u save a piece for ur 1st Annv?) Continue Reading

It's 'wedding Wednesday' and I had cutest idea for my ring bearer nephew (btw was not my idea, i super stole it off somebody else's wedding) He's going to carry a flag like this when he walks down the aisle.
Is that silly adorable!? I couldn't resist. He will be wearing little velvet man-suit w blk sneaks.
do u remember any priceless, funny 'walk down aisle' stories from weddings u have been to? (One of my bff's actually had her dog as her ring bearer.) Continue Reading

Happy March! it's 'Wedding Wednesday'. So we r getting hitched at rustic place and instead of traditional table numbers, we r doing hanging chalkboard signs w names that mean something to us. Maybe like, "Portofino & Paris" (our honeymoon) ... Etc.
just went to friends wedding in snow country and she named each table after things like, "bobsled" and "ski". so cute(Ugh but the seating chart...what a challenge that is. Did you struggle w that too?) Continue Reading

I have been terribly delinquint on blogging. My sincerest apologies for being such a flake. I am so stressed trying to juggle a million flaming swords known as my wedding rings, wedding dress, food, decor, cakes, RSVP's...all along with my regular hectic life and career...that I feel truly at my max. Like, any minute I'm going to either melt into a pile or just snap!
Ok, quick wedding update since I know you all are hungry for some deets. Are you following my Wedding Wednesday posts? Latest update includes ... I'm doing a red velvet/buttercream cake...my brother (8yrs older than... Continue Reading
