Thank you for all your messages lately. I wanted to share that my wedding was more than N and I could have ever expected. It was perfect. A real fairy-tale. I will share some professional photos once I get them, but here is one of my favorites taken by my (now) cousin, Jodi.
As promised, I am working on a segment with all my wedding planning tips, sharing everything from choosing your wedding party (remember I asked my ladies with these DIY bridal party boxes) to the activities you should plan days before the BIG day.
I also have some extremely sad news to share, my baby bear, Freddy_doodle was hit by a car in front of our house one week after we returned from Europe. I honestly cannot talk about that yet. It hurts too much and combined with planning a wedding, it is the reason I have not written for some time. I am however SOOO grateful I did everything in my power to make sure he was a part of our wedding <3
Thank you for sticking by me and my blog. I have SO much content to start sharing again — I am also collaborating with some great influencers to bring awareness to shelter animals. Combining fashion with an amazing cause is something I am really excited to be able to do. I will continue running @Freddy_doodle with the intention of helping other animals.
Last update, N and I are putting our condo on the market and moving. We planned to do this eventually, in a year or so when we bounced back from the wedding financials, but losing the love of our life was a sign that we need to start the next chapter of our lives and not wait. We call it Our Chapter 3.
I will share how to market your home for selling with tons of pictures and tips (declutter and depersonalize are key!) and am working to collaborate with some interior designers to make the new place (once we find it) our family home.
Stay tuned and thanks for reading and following along. The journey of life is so unpredictable sometimes, but what I have learned is that we all need the love and support from others to make it through the difficult times.
I hope everyone is doing well! I feel like I say this a lot but I am sorry for my lack of posts. I promise I have not given up on my blog!! I love it too much! Balancing a 9-5 job with a dog (my child) , keeping up with a workout routine, trying to eat and cook healthy meals at home and PLAN a wedding has been making my blogging time quite difficult. I defiently had a reality check when I went back to work like most of America #moneyyy — I do hope I can work from home for the majority of my career again soon, but until now I am posting whenever I can!
I had been wanting to post this gingham outfit. I had these pictures taken a month ago but am posting it now because I just noticed that this entire outfit is on SALE! score!
The pants are just $21 and I think would also look super cute with a body suit and jean jacket. The shirt is also on sale for $21 and would look super cute with skinny jeans or even white shorts with sandals.
I also have this gingham off the shoulder top which is a little more comfy to have on really hot days. I wore it for N’s bday party we had at Dave N Busters last weekend 🙂
Thanks for your support and following along with my blog. I appreciate my readers SO much. Next week, I will share my elegant wedding invitations that I scored for half the price!! Check back.
We’re heading to NYC again this weekend for my second dress fitting — follow along on Snap to see what we’re up to 🙂 We plan to explore CP again and more of the city.
I hope you all have a wonderful SUNNY (finally!) weekend.
My lovely sister and mother threw me a gorgeous Bridal Shower on Sunday! I feel bad when people do things simply for me, so I tried to get involved with the planning and details but was forced to stay out of it. I’m so busy with work and wedding planning, so I didn’t pry too much 😉
I was taken back by how beautiful everything was! I knew it would be — I just wanted to help but I am glad I didn’t because it made it that much more special to me and a moment I will cherish forever.
–The LOVE balloons were one of my favorite decor pieces!–
It’s that time again to show your Mom just how special she really is. In my opinion, pet-mom’s count too! Nico, if you’re reading this! 😉
My sis and I have been chatting back and forth about the spread we will have for our Mother’s Day brunch for Mrs. M! We both love baking and cooking, so that’s exactly what we will do for our mom. The weather does not look good so we had to resort to our Plan B – hosting indoors at my house. All outdoor events are off limits with a May Nor’easter heading our way #nofun

I cannot even believe yesterday marked the 100 day milestone until I am walking down the same church aisle my parents walked down 36 years (more…)
