Guest Blogger: Musing on Beauty

So there are actually two big surprises for this week! The first is that our wedding is being featured on A Practical Wedding today! Yay!! You can head there to check it out! I am super psyched since I wrote the post a while back, but only recently got brave enough to submit it....more

Sweet Wedding

It's been a long, long time since I posted a wedding. I happened onto this adorable wedding via StumbleUpon, and fell in love with its woodsy wonderfulness!...more

Life Changer

It was 4 a.m, I lay quietly in bed, barely able to contain myself. This day had special significance, it was goal setting time. I was hungry with anticipation and quietly rolled down the covers, slipped into my robe and tip toed into the kitchen....more

Our Anniversary: The Details (Finally!)

Here's how we spent our anniversary. We actually kicked off the celebrating on Saturday night. We prepped for the big day by finally getting around to trying a new Italian pizzeria near our place called Ciao Napoli. It was delicious, and we'll for sure be heading back soon. We drank some good wine, ate some delicious pizza, and then we were stuffed....more

Wedding Cake Eating: The Sequel

So, technically our anniversary was on the 27th of March, but we just got around to eating the top of the wedding cake last night. It was surprisingly good. My brother, who house sat for us when we were on our honeymoon, wrapped it and he actually did a really good job. He wrapped it twice in saran wrap, and then twice in foil. Nicely done, big bro!...more

Feeling it soak in.

I have the pleasure of working just two blocks away from Union Square in San Francisco. Last Tuesday a colleague of mine who works out of our Home Office (which is just 4 blocks away from Union Square in the opposite direction) my boss and I met there for a quick online marketing meeting. It was seriously beautiful outside and the sun was shining down on the 3 of us, gloriously!...more

I am Relationship.

 'I don't think we should date anymore'. Stop. I want you to stop and think for a moment about your first break-up. Who knows how long you were in that dark place or if you're even out. I thought I was far from the days of listening to 'Tears on my Pillow', myself. So, I'm 28 and dating. If you're older you're probably thinking, 'You still have time' and if you're younger you'd start off with, 'You're not that old, you still have time'. My first break-up (gulp) I found out that my boyfriend was dating another woman on Myspace....more

Open Wedding Culture Debate on 'Asking the parents for permission'.

www.TheFeministBride.com Open Debate: Think having your beau ask your parents for permission to marry you is totally sexist, outdated or romantic? Why?...more

Keep the Faith

If you were given a list of available children to adopt, which one would you pick? Would you look for the cutest, youngest, happiest little boy or girl? Or would you choose an older child... say around 15 or 16 years old?   My husband and I are currently going through this right now. Last year, we were chosen...yes, I said chosen... to adopt a child (or children). We have a natural son already but realized that adopting a child would make the most sense for us.   For anyone wondering, because I get asked this question a lot... Yes....more

One Year Ago...

One year ago this past Sunday, we did this:...more

I mean I guess divorced people hate each other more than when they married, but it seems to me ...more
