This Grateful Season – On The Other Side

And here we are – one the other side of November as it turns into December – from the grateful season to the holiday season. We decorated last week but still have ornaments to make and a tree to purchase and trim. Now I have an understanding of what I’ve gone through in the past […]

This Grateful Season – New Project

Today a really great work opportunity moved forward with a YES from those above me. I’m still nervous that it’ll get snagged by red tape or shut down, but I am enjoying this moment while I have it. Success. A new project. Work supporting my bigger ideas. And I am feeling the inkling of longer-term […]

This Grateful Season – Amazing Wedding Photographers

As I wrote yesterday, our wedding on 7.7.12 this year was pretty amazing. But it wouldn’t have been as awesome, or memorable, if we didn’t have spectacular wedding photographers Seba Photography. I have no recollection of how I found them. I was excited about them because they were the only photographers to send us full […]

This Grateful Season – Kick Ass Wedding Weekend

I may never get around to writing the full-on wedding post, but it can’t go without mention. I use this grateful season to recap my year and if 2012 was anything it was the year of our wedding. I know it’s a cliche, but the whole day, the entire weekend, was perfect. It proved again […]

This Grateful Season – The Ocean

Yesterday we took a ride down to Hermosa Beach – so awesome. We walked around, looked off the pier at surfers, watched kids “sled” down the dunes on boogie boards and my sister and I touched every single item in Gum Tree (my favorite kind of store). I can’t tell you how much I needed […]

This Grateful Season – A Toast

This Grateful Season – The Coolest

Thankful for having such an amazing life. Whether I’m up or I’m down, I know I am blessed. Went out last night with my husband and sister for drinks. Enjoyed their company and watched them party (designated driver). Then got up early this AM for a 5k run with some awesome girls on the beach […]

Thie Grateful Season – Honeymooning

      One of the best parts about getting married, or more so, planning a wedding, is the honeymoon. My husband planned the entire thing by himself, I just gave him feedback on what I did and didn’t want to do. We chose Hawaii because I need beach, exotic, romantic and umbrella drinks and […]
