While I’m Away..

I’ll be away for a while so I can spend time with family and friends before heading back to Boston.  I hope you have a wonderful New Year and I’ll see you in January!

Warmth On This Christmas Eve

Even though this wedding has more of a fall setting, it really invoked a strong feeling of love, commitment and family warmth.

It’s Christmas Eve and I hope you are with the people that you love most.

“Driving Home for Christmas”

I’ve packed up all the presents, Bradley and Ger and we are off to Pennsylvania for Christmas and the Wedding Celebration!

Driving home for Christmas
Oh, I can’t wait to see those faces
I’m driving home for Christmas, yea
Well I’m moving down that line
And it’s been so long
But I will be there
I sing this song
To pass the time away
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas

Is Your Wedding “Blog-Worthy?”

I have a confession to make.  Nine times out of ten, when I’m going through all of my favorite blogs, I don’t read the articles and just look at the pretty pictures.  I know, I know, I’m sure the posts are wonderful and intriguing but I’m more of a visual girl and it’s the actual photos that grab my attention.

There are those times where someone’s post stops me dead in my tracks and this was one of them. It put everything into perspective when it comes to planning a wedding.

I’m sure I’m not the only one that has a little voice in the back of their head saying “Oh, but would this get me featured in this or that blog” or “I need to think of something so different that it would impress other brides.”  I know, it’s terrible and I don’t want to admit it but sadly, it’s true.  It’s hard not to get wrapped up in wanting everything to be perfect and “blog-worthy.”

Meg’s post on A Practical Wedding really hit home.  It made me think of the real reason why we stress over all the details of a wedding.

I’ve gotten to a point where it just doesn’t matter.  We’ve been engaged for over a year and I’m past the hype of needing everything to be perfect and it feels amazing!

Does anyone else feel the same? Are you abandoning the need to have your wedding be “blog-worthy?”
