Thank You, 2015

This post will be sappy and cheesy and it will include wedding photos and puppy photos and all the things that have made me smile the hugest in 2015. You’ve been warned. Joy ahead. When I look back at 2015, I feel so much love. And for that I feel really lucky and grateful and […]

Party Time: Our Wedding Reception!

All the wedding recaps in one place, because we live in an “In Case You Missed It” world… The Week The Stress The Prep The Ceremony And now: The Party! When Brian and I started wedding planning, we learned very quickly that it’s insane. Places, whether they’re traditional wedding venues or empty warehouse spaces, charge you […]

Making It Official: Our Wedding Ceremony

Today, I’m here to talk about our wedding ceremony. Here’s what we’ve already covered… The One Where It’s Wedding Week The One With All The Stress The One Where We Get Ready In Onesies A bit of background about our ceremony and our priorities: Brian and I are not religious. My dad’s side of the […]

Wedding Day!

Catching up? Here’s what you may have missed (or purposely skipped because maybe you’re mat at me? I don’t know): Kicking off Wedding Week! Surviving the last two days before the Big Day. The night before our wedding — and the whole week leading up to it — felt a lot like the night before a […]

The Two Days Before

The two days before our wedding were two of the most intense, stressful days I can recall. Nothing traumatic or tragic happened — not by any means. In fact, we were pretty much sticking exactly to the schedule we had mapped out, which is practically unheard of for both Brian and my parents. #goteampunctual There […]

Wedding Week!

This is your official warning: The time has come to write about The Wedding. I have so much to say (such a surprise!), so I’m breaking it all down into many posts over several days. If you typically come here for the running stuff (which has been mostly MIA since like 2012…) or the Crohn’s […]

Go Team Cristiano!

“Was it everything you dreamed it would be?” That’s what everyone keeps asking me today — referring of course to yesterday, September 26, 2015, the day Brian and I got married. And truthfully? No. Because you can’t dream that shit up. After 10 months of planning and the excitingly busiest week of my whole life, […]

An Update On That Party We’re Planning

“We should play ‘Welcome to New York’ when everyone is arriving at the reception!” “Like…the Taylor Swift song?” “Yeah!” To clarify, the first and third lines above were said by Brian. I was the one questioning whether he was aware that he did, in fact, choose a Taylor Swift song to welcome our guests, and […]

No Stress, No Crohn’s

Good morning! I’m pleased to report that I’m feeling good today. I got a solid 5 hours of sleep (I know, I know, not enough — but it was good, air conditioned sleep) and woke up today rested and ready to kick off a 3-day work week. In case, like me, you went mostly unplugged […]

Memorial Day Weekend 2011

Um…Can every weekend be a long weekend? Everything about the past few days has been perfect. Since we last caught up, I’ve been to 16 Handles… I’ve been to Brooklyn… …and — surprise, Mom! — I’ve been to New Hampshire. It’s been a whirlwind weekend, but here’s a bit more about why it was so […]
