My August Wedding, and Mini-Getaway

Mini-Getaway A couple days after the wedding, Andy and I traveled to Pittsburgh, PA. Since we’re saving up for a extended honeymoon next year, we set aside a couple days to relax and enjoy Pittsburgh for a few days: Grandview Overlook We visited the Grandview Avenue Overlook, which has gorgeous views of Pittsburgh and itsContinue reading “My August Wedding, and Mini-Getaway”

December 29, 2018: Wedding Colors/Flower Girls

My David’s Bridal color swatches shipped out today. I’m looking forward to their arrival…I need to discover which shade of yellow could work with the purple I selected for my color scheme. This yellow shade will be paired with the other color in the reception area. Next year will be a busy one, since theContinue reading “December 29, 2018: Wedding Colors/Flower Girls”

December 26, 2018: Growing Up/Coordinating

The free time passes by so quickly! It seemed like Friday was only a few hours ago, and now I’m up at 5am once more, readying myself for work. I did have a relaxing time with relatives and reading. Ana is growing so quickly! She’s even talking more clearly, the ‘child-like’ sound of her speechContinue reading “December 26, 2018: Growing Up/Coordinating”

December 21, 2018: Appointments and Sharings

Thursday was such a hectic time for me after I left work. I didn’t think that was possible, but it was. I finally had a medical appointment that did so many tests, and I need to follow up next month. It was all necessary, yet I was taken aback at how much I needed toContinue reading “December 21, 2018: Appointments and Sharings”

December 10, 2018: Reading Progress/Wedding Tasks

I’ve made some progress in Liane Moriarty’s ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’. So far, it seems like the ‘wellness resort’ that Frances and the other participants are staying at is certainly not what it seems! The multiple- perspective voice in the story keeps the momentum going also. I’m hoping to keep my reading pace going this week.Continue reading “December 10, 2018: Reading Progress/Wedding Tasks”

November 29, 2018: Thursday Thoughts

The days are getting colder…not that much to be inside all the time, but a chill is definitely in the air. I’m taking advantage of all the seasonable days I have. Winter will be here before we know it. I got in contact with my cousin yesterday, to see if we can get together toContinue reading “November 29, 2018: Thursday Thoughts”

October 22, 2018: 300 Days

This morning I began looking through the ‘Together for Life’ readings we need to select for the wedding next year. At first glance it feels overwhelming. So many passages to choose from! Some feeling too lengthy, too short, or too limiting. As I spent more time searching, my mind settled somewhat. The readings all wereContinue reading “October 22, 2018: 300 Days”

September 27, 2018: Thursday Thoughts

I picked up my wedding dress today. Since there’s still some time before my wedding, I need to store it at home for a while before taking it to get altered. I didn’t expect to have so much time to wait before alterations. Really glad that the dress search is done with though. Tomorrow afterContinue reading “September 27, 2018: Thursday Thoughts”

September 16, 2018: Coming to Terms

Truly thankful that I had a good night’s sleep. While I know that it’s still the weekend, of course I would get a decent night’s sleep, it actually has been difficult. For the past couple weeks, I’ve been waking up several times during the night. I could not get to sleep, and it was frustrating.Continue reading “September 16, 2018: Coming to Terms”

September 1, 2018: Summer Ending, and Dress Shopping

It’s amazing that summer is flying by so quickly! Only a couple weeks before Autumn is upon us. When I was a teacher in the public/private schools (with summers off), I enjoyed Labor Day trips to Wildwood with Andy. It was so lovely to enjoy the last days off before the year began. Now thatContinue reading “September 1, 2018: Summer Ending, and Dress Shopping”
