June 20, 2017 5:22 pm,

After yesterday’s monsoon, it’s so lovely to experience a gorgeous day in New York City. I’ve been super busy and it’s easy to let time for reflection go. But I’m just about caught up for the day and heck, it’s Tuesday. Please join me in sharing your weekly lists – or encouraging me in mine! […]

June 13, 2017 11:56 pm,

Oh my, where did the day go? It’s almost midnight and I’m just getting to my weekly lists. This is going to be quick and dirty. We finally got stupid hot weather here in New York so we’re moving a little slow. Please kind and patient. Okay, here we go! GRATITUDES 1. Tasty summer cocktails […]

Gratituesday 6.6.17 – A Little Self-Care!

June 6, 2017 12:55 pm,

Hello and Welcome to Wedding Season! Thankfully things are very busy, but that means it takes more of an effort to reflect and practice self-care. There are many in my circle that focus their time and energy on assisting others. We all need to remember – me included – to take care of ourselves. I […]

May 30, 2017 7:07 pm,

Well hello there! It’s been over 2 months since I’ve posted a weekly update. I did start to write one last month and I accidentally closed the window without saving! I was too lazy and frustrated to start again. But I’m turning a new leaf and will be writing on a weekly basis. It’s been […]

Vendors I Love: NICKI FIETZER and DE NUEVA PHOTOGRAPHY

March 9, 2017 4:22 pm,

 I’m a lucky gal. I not only get to work with couples during a very special time of their lives, but have the opportunity to collaborate with some amazing wedding professionals. Nicki of De Nueva is one bad-ass photographer. I love how she captures joy and her appreciation of color and composition perfectly tells a […]

Thursday Desires 3.9.17

March 9, 2017 3:48 pm,

I’m not gonna lie, I’m tired. I’ve had a busy few days and I almost decided to let this post go. There’s a lengthy to-do list on my desk, but even though it’s sunny and warm out there, all I wanted to do was sit on the couch and watch movies. But there’s lots I […]

Vendors I Love: TAYLOR LAUREN BARKER PHOTOGRAPHY

February 8, 2017 6:21 pm,

I took an amazingly circuitous route to get to where I am. But looking back, it makes incredible sense. The same goes for the photographer I focus on today. I met Taylor at a wedding I officiated in the summer of 2015 in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. While it’s difficult to connect at events since we’re […]

Happy New Year, everyone! It’s hard to believe it’s been 4 weeks since I’ve posted my Weekly Lists. I’m certainly in hibernation mode, but it’s time to reconnect.

Gratituesday 12.27.16

December 27, 2016 10:50 am,

Last week came and went and I completely forgot to do my weekly lists. I flew back from Atlanta and went straight into work mode. It’s not like I didn’t reflect, I just didn’t share. But enough of the excuses. Without further ado, here are my Weekly Lists. Join me, will ya? GRATITUDES 1. My […]
