I remember the cold Sunday afternoon in January at the Starbucks uptown in Hoboken when I met Lindsey & Mike. They were so full of love and laughter that Jackie and I were immediately drawn to them. They had the date set for September 21st at the W Hotel in Hoboken and were looking for some assistance along the way. I had such a lovely time over the next 9 months helping Lindsey secure a florist, hair and make-up, transportation and a black and white dance floor! Please see the beautiful pictures below... read more.

It was about a deceased mother who had planned a wedding for her daughter (before she was engaged) to the very last detail. Now the wedding is upon us and there are twists and turns, but it is filled with a beautiful love story, strong fa... read more.

Hello & Happy November!Last week I checked off a bucket list item and took a weeklong road tip through California!

So here's a list of neat places I stumbled upon along my travels!I started my trip flying into San Francisco and heading to Monterey. Hands down, Monterey was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. While d... read more.
Hello Friends & Happy almost November!This month we had two fabulous weddings & lots of beautiful weather! I hope it stays this warm in November!For this month's book I read Changing Lanes by Kathleen Long. It was exactly what I needed after last month's book. It was a feel good novel based on a 30 year woman who was a big fan of planning out her life (Which obviously I loved & related to!) but when all her plans fall apart you learn how strong she really is. I love books like this, t... read more.

Hey Folks,Book & DIY time!This month's book was a tough one. I was on a mystery kick lately because my boyfriend and I got into the show, The Killing which was unbelievably addicting. However, I learned maybe me and mystery books are not a match made in heaven. The books name was, Every Contact Leaves a Trace by Elanor Dymott. Centered around sex, love and betrayal, it was definitely an interesting story however a bit confusing at times. To be fair, I am easily confused :)Favorite line: "There is a... read more.
