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”

Reading Blog: Readathon Progress

I’m in the midst of wedding planning, but I managed to make some time for my stories. As much as I’m excited about my wedding (10 days away!), I need a break from planning for a little while. This week I finished the audiobook of Again, but Better. I liked how the story was aContinue reading “Reading Blog: Readathon Progress”

Wednesday Thoughts

This month has brought a lot of inactivity on the reading/writing front. Most of it has been due to health issues, and feeling stressed out from said problems. Planning a wedding has also brought its share of uncertainty, due to a dear family member (who is in the bridal party) neglecting her responsibility. Since IContinue reading “Wednesday Thoughts”

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”

November 4, 2018: Planning

Today ends ‘Daylight Savings’ time, or that period when it gets darker mich earlier. Aside from gaining that extra hour of sleep, there isn’t much that changes. As I get older, what my grandfather always shares with me about this day is true: people re-enter their daily routine, nothing changes. For myself, I continue toContinue reading “November 4, 2018: Planning”

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”
