Slacker.

 

 

Ugh. I know. SUPER slacker. But I’ve got some good stuff in store. I have a Front and Center post from my friend Becca‘s family portrait photographer who is pretty rad and needs some exposure. So, Denver-area peeps, play close attention. Not in the D-town area? No need to fret. She travels.

And THEN … I have a new guest poster who is in the throes of wedding planning. Becca ALSO introduced me to her and her blog, The Thrifty Social Worker, and when I contacted her about possibly guest-starring, she was all about it.

In the meantime, for this slacking blogger, I’ve been trying to work my butt off getting extra work so I can one day stop going into the office (biggest dream EVER).

So, I promise kiddos, that I will return my attention to you and all will once again be right again.

Toy.

I got a new toy. We discussed how I needed something a bit more mobile than our laptop, which seems to be drawing closer to death on a daily basis.

So … Our big debate was whether I should get an iPod Touch or a Kindle Fire.

For me, it came down to one thing. Camera.

So Apple won out and I can now literally blog on the go.

HOLLER.

Spotlight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had another post in mind. But it hit a speedbump. Which is fine. I understand. But it brought up a valid point.

Weddings are intensely personal, private things. And yet, in the current technology-filled times, they aren’t. They’re on the blogosphere, they’re in the media. They’re EVERYWHERE.

Meg at A Practical Wedding wrote in a post some time ago about keeping some privacy in your wedding.

ESB tweeted about being super pissed if someone tweeted a sh*tty cellphone pic of your wedding.

Offbeat Bride has featured more than a couple weddings where the ceremony was just the couple and the reception included everyone else. Or where the couple whispered their vows to one another.

When our photos went live and our slideshow (have you watched it yet???) went up, I went crazy with emailing it to people and posting on Facebook. I even staged a viewing in my office.

But, some people aren’t that attention crazy. And maybe it’s not just about the attention.

For me, while (I’m an only child, so … derrr.) I do love attention, it’s more about sharing. Sharing with people who couldn’t be there, reminiscing with those that were. Sharing those great moments that not everyone sees on a day-to-day basis. Sharing something special.

I, personally, love to show everyone what an awesome time we had. How much love was in the air, how into karaoke we get and what a great bunch of people we had around us. I worked two damn years on the thing. Of course I want to show it off!

But there are people who would rather keep their weddings, marriages, intensely private. Who don’t want to share ideas, details or pictures. Who want to store them for their own little stash, to return to when they want to without people pestering them. To remember the moments for themselves without others weighing in or providing commentary. And that’s awesome. It’s special. And sweet.

Above all, the decision to shout about your wedding from the treetops or keep your photos hidden in a cubbyhole should be yours and your husbands.

Things To Come.

I’ve been a bad blogger as of late. Have been sort of melting down about some wedding stuff. We had to switch coordinators because our original one at the hotel is going to a wedding on the same day as ours. The transition  hasn’t been easy, per se. So I’ve been bogged down in trying to match up all the correspondence from the last (almost!!!) two years with what they have now. No small task, but we’re getting there.

Work has also been … daunting. Many office vacations make for less days off for yours truly. Which is fine, it’s just a lot. Whatevs.

Anywho, we’ve managed to get *thisclose* to having everything.

Also??? And this is exciting!!! I’ve got a couple more real wedding posts in the pipelines. Two Vegas ones, one of which was a quick just-the-two-of-them affair. AND!!!! I’ve got at least one international post. Possibly another, but still waiting to hear.

One thing I’ve noticed so far is they’ve all been … destination weddings! I in no way planned on this, but hey, it’s relevant! And pretty freaking rad.

So … stay tuned.

xoxo

*Coming Soon* New Goodies That Aren’t All About Me.

Oh!!!! I’m actually sitting here getting all SQUEEE about this!!!

So, you know how I said the other day that I was going to do this and WIN? Well, I’m doing it. I’ve talked to a couple of my rad homies and they’ve offered to step up and give me some more schtuff to put on here. Both of these girls have been hitched for a while now and I’ve known them for ages … like since I was twelve-teen and younger. And you know what? These chicks have it going on. One’s a mama of an adorbz little girl and a career woman, and the other is a military wife of sorts. And she lives a pretty baller life and has a job that makes her travel … a lot.

So I’m working out the logistics, fine-tuning some shizz and soon you’ll have ACTUAL married peeps talking about their experiences.

Are you excited? Because I am.

Gettin’ Serrrrious.

Alright, kidlets. I need help. In my quest to win the Interwebz and be a “successful” blogger (everyone’s definition of success is different. Mine is to work for myself and be able to write about what I love … obv.) I need to start featuring stuff that isn’t just about me.

So … are you getting married? Did you get married, even ages ago? Do you have friends who are getting married? Wanna share? I’d love stories, photos, musings, etc. Let’s see all the prettiness, intellectualism and all around amazeballzness. Of course, please cite all sources.
