Safe and Sound

I do hope Hurricane Sandy didn't prove too adventurous for you, East Coasters. We hunkered down all day with kettle popcorn, episodes of Mad Men, Little Women and Cloud Atlas by candlelight, Manhattans, wedding planning and interwoven naps. Luckily, we only lost power in the wee hours of the night. Hope all were safe and enjoyed the quiet hours at home.

The Tenenbaums

So, tell me, what were you for Halloween? I finally persuaded boy to try out a costume, and let me just tell you, he was utterly uncomfortable and out of spirits. I resolved to promise him that this would be the first and last of his dressing up days. He just looked so pitiful; you should have seen it.

Wedding: 2 things

I just finished updating our wedding website, using The Knot. I wish I had time to make all the changes and additions I'd want up there, but alas this will have to do . . . what do you think?

Wedding Question

(dress via Weddingdress

Despite my worry and moaning, it looks like my dress will work out after all. Can I just say, Woo Hoo!? It was a rough go there for a while. Now onto the business at hand . . .

Many Hopes Video

(photo of me with some of the girls at the home) 

Just a little plug for an organization that is near and dear to me. Last week, we launched the Breaking Ground Campaign for Many Hopes. It's a four week campaign, raising funds for operational costs for a girls' home and school in Kenya.

Who/what will you be for Halloween?

Halloween is approaching, and I have no idea what I'm going to be. How about you?

Philip hates, I mean ABHORS with a passion, Halloween. He's planning on wearing a suit, so when you ask him what he is, he replies "a man in a suit." He lends this attitude to the thinking that only children or parents of children should wear costumes; otherwise, you're just absurd.

Bridal Photos

I'd love to share some photos with you of my bridal shoot. I'm wildly in love with how these came out, and I owe it all to the lovely BMP, my good friend Brooke. She was a superb director and photographer, making me feel at ease as giant beetles crawled up the tree stumps just waiting to attack me- eek.

These will be a gift for boy; don't worry, he has strict instructions to not browse the blog these next few weeks.

On self pity

Funny Cry for Help Ecard: I go through far too much Kleenex for someone who's never sick.

It’s been almost a month since I last posted. Heavens, how time does fly. I have about three posts sitting in my draft box just waiting to be posted, but alas, time has not been on my side these last few weeks. Wedding planning is in full gear; oh, and did I tell you that I was in Ethiopia for work these last couple weeks? I just returned Saturday, and it was an amazing time. More on that later . . .
