I said it …

I loved my wedding. I loved the colors I used and the extras I added. I loved it! I sometimes thing that it’s a fauxpas to say – “It was fabulous!” I often hear brides talking about what they would change and what didn’t go right. But, I have to say, my day was super fantastic.

Here are some of my favorite things from my big day!




The bridesmaid’s dresses!


My cake!


Our table scape…


My flowers…


The group shots.


And my red shoes!

Cheers to beautiful, fabulous weddings!

One More Week in NonProfit!


One more week to go in the land of nonprofit! I’ve loved the experience. I’ve spent 3 years in nonprofit and have enjoyed the work but not always the pay. I hate to think of myself as a gold digger because I’m going into the big world of FOR profit but the fact of the matter is I like to shop. I do and unfortunately I’ve got to find a way to pay for some of the things I love besides using the credit card. And so … next Tuesday is my last day and Wed. is my first day at my new job in agency life. I’m excited. I know it will come with lots of changes. After-all, I’ll be a supervisor, which should be interesting in itself and managing budgets which should be a great catalyst for humor down the road but I’m going to “put myself out there” like Dr. Phil says and try something different. “Why not?” I think to myself. The worse thing that could happen is that I hate it and then I can always move on to something else. PR is always needed … especially crisis communications. The best thing that could happen? I’ll love it and thrive in it and do splendid! Wishful thinking and prayers!Change – here I come!

New York New York

In December I’m heading to NYC for the first time! I’ve been to some of the largest cities in the world but have neglected the Big Apple due to traffic and timing. We usually go around NYC to avoid traffic delays while driving to New Hampshire. The trip is a new family right of passage. My hubby’s mother has invited me to be her “daughter” and we’re meeting other ladies from the family there for a weekend of shopping, sight-seeing and fun. I’m looking forward to it, especially at Christmas time. But, I have to have the perfect wine color winter jacket. I live in the South and it’s tough to find fashionable winter jackets, so I’ve already started looking online. And even though we don’t have two pennys to rub together right now, I want to save up a bit of change to purchase a fabulous winter jacket for our trip to the big city! Help me out! Here are several jackets I found…The jury is out though.



There is something I LOVE about this gray one…


Any suggestions?

New Opportunities

Last week I quit my job. It was a stressful decision but I decided to accept a position with an agency. I’ve never worked for an agency before so the decision was especially tough. I’m not sure about billing hours or making nice with my staff and clients a like but it should be a great experience. I love my current job but I wasn’t being utilized to my full potential. Honestly, I was bored to DEATH. It was nice when I was planning my wedding, but now … not so much. In addition, there just wasn’t enough job stability for me. I’m all about change but not when I’m not prepared!

So, on the 19th, I start a new phase! I’m excited about it but also a bit scared and worried. We’ll see how it goes… Wish me luck!
