The Invitation....

I absolutely loved my wedding invitation. As you can see I definitely went the traditional route, but what I love is that I had the invitation designed by a local calligrapher to make it unique to my groom and me. Every loop and swirl was thought about in detail and it came out beautifully. I wanted to add a little something special to the invitation so instead of the typical tissue that accompanies an invitation like this, we used vellum that had a gorgeous cross designed by our calligrapher in the middle. It is kind of hard to show that in a photograph, so you will just have to take my word for it that it was pretty fabulous! Also, the cross appeared on the stamp on the outside of the envelope. I have a few leftover and love to use them for special letters I mail.

It is about time....


If you have been reading my blog for awhile now you probably gave up hope of me ever posting pictures from my wedding or either you forgot altogether that I got married last November! It is about time I share some pictures, right?!! For those of you who don't know, I started working for Celebrate magazine in March and was asked by the Editor if I would share my wedding with our readers. Um, hello, YES I would LOVE to share MY wedding!!!!! So, our fall issue just came out complete with my wedding pictures and the story of our big day written by yours truly. Now, that was a challenge! How do you fit everything you have to say about the greatest day ever in just a few short pages??? I managed to squeeze a lot of it in, but figured I could go into more details here on my blog. So, stay tuned for more!!

Summer Dessert

If you are a long time reader of my blog you know I have the ultimate sweet tooth...mainly for decadent chocolate desserts. So, you can imagine my surprise when I found myself craving these popsicles! I think it must be the Prosecco that has me intrigued. What I do know is that this has got to be a great way to cool down on a very hot summer day!
