My favorite book…ever!

I firmly believe that when you find something good, like something really good, you should shout it from the rooftops and share it. For me that something really good, maybe even really great is the book Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis. To be completely honest with you I have no idea how I…

Practicing Gratitude

I saw this amazing post on Facebook from Robin Roberts and she said she believes “optimism is a muscle that gets stronger with use,” and I just can’t stop thinking about it. It was such a great way to look at optimism and made me realize and reflect a lot. A few weeks ago, I…

Feel GOOD Friday…Exercise=Endorphins

Although it is pretty pricey, I have no regrets in joining Equinox.  For me, I love all the classes at Equinox.  They are all challenging, but fun, and I always leave feeling like I got a good workout.  I enjoy working out–I feel like it is a time for me to focus on myself and…

Back in Action…Weekend Recap

The past few weeks, I can honestly say, my blog has not been what I envisioned it to be.  As I mentioned, last week–my job is going through some changes that I am hoping will continue in a positive fashion.  I am hoping to get back on track with my blog and my life, in…

The best thing I did while wedding planning…

Planning a wedding is a huge task. One of the most important things to remember as a bride is that it will all come together…some way or another. One piece of advice that one of my coworkers–Jonathan gave me while planning, was that even if something doesn’t go as planned–I will be the only one…

Back in Action…Hawaii Recap

So, I am back in action over here, although still pretty exhausted from our travel home from Hawaii yesterday.  We left Maui at 7:30 pm, flew to Honolulu, and then flew direct from Honolulu back to NJ.  It wasn’t the worst flight back, but red eyes always mess me up for a few days and…

Weekend Recap…Aloha in 5 days!

This weekend was really a special one!  Dan and I became godparents to our niece, little Miss Rosie!  Her and her twin sister Ellie were such good babies during their baptism and they looked ever so cute in their little dresses and matching bonnets!  This is my first godchild so I was not really sure…

Seasons of Love with Thor & Bentley…

So, I woke up this morning bright and early!  I love mornings where waking up isn’t difficult.  It is probably due to the fact that I went to bed at 10 pm.  I tend to be more of a night owl by nature.  I actually write a lot of my blogs at night and then…

I only listen to my Mom sometimes…

Sorry Mom, the truth is out.  I only listen to you sometimes.  The one time I didn’t listen to you and I am glad I didn’t was in regards to having Thor present at our wedding. For a little background, my Mom loves Thor, but Thor is a little challenging.  He is challenging in the cutest…

Getting the best photos of your wedding day…

I was fortunate enough to have Anne Lee, as my wedding photographer.  Leading up to our wedding, Anne and I chatted back and forth, organized our engagement photo session in NYC, and discussed and planned the wedding day pretty much down to the minute.  It was so helpful that Anne had photographed many weddings prior…

Who is your Mr. Right…and who should be your Mr. Wrong?

This is kind of a silly topic, but I feel compelled to write about it because now, I am married, so I am obviously an expert on relationships (this is a joke, please sense the sarcasm…).  I heard the Brad Paisley song “Letter to Me” and it made me think about my younger self and…

Finding a career idol…

When I was younger  I used to think that, without a doubt, I wanted to be a stay at home mom.  I thought this was always going to be my ultimate goal in life and I wanted kids, lots of them, and I wanted to stay home to nurture them and be there for every…
