Help for Haiti

With the recent tragedy in Haiti, we find our selves looking for ways to help. The best way people can help is to donate money, even if it is only $5 per person, it will help. Here are some links to places where you can donate to help Haiti.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Haiti and all their family and friends around the world.

Aruba Vacation

A and I just got back from our first ever trip to Aruba, we had a great time and wish we did not have to return to the cold and snow. I have a few pictures to share with you. We stayed at the Radisson Beach Resort, for 5 nights. A and I played golf, rode ATVs, enjoyed the beach and took a Catamaran snorkeling (really A was the only one who went snorkeling, I was just along for the boat ride, big fear of fish).

This pic was taken during a stop on an ATV tour that we took. We were on top of a giant rock.

Everyday we sat under these grass huts called Palapas.

Our room at the Radisson had a Caribbean/Asian/Relaxing design. We'll be redoing our master bedroom and were inspired by the laid back style of our hotel room.

The room had these amazing floor to ceiling Asian inspirated screens that opened up to a balcony. When closed they still let in light but, allowed for privacy.

All in all, it was a great trip and we can not wait till the next time that we can get back to Aruba.

One Year of Blogging

I can't believe it has been an entire year since I started this blog and blogging in general. I thought it might be fun to re-post my very first post. I have learned so much since I posted this Your Perfect Wedding post, I cannot wait to see how much I will learn in the next year. Enjoy!

You can have a perfect wedding as long as you stay true to yourself and your fiance, you will have the perfect wedding for you.
After you have enjoyed a few days of being engaged you might feel like you want to start planning. The best thing you can do at this time is to dream up with you fiance what you envision this day being, not the budget, not the guest list, but what this day means to the two of you.
So grab a pen and paper and write down the following:
  1. What time of year do the two of you love.
  2. Is there a special place or kind of place that means something to the both of you.
  3. Whats your favorite color ( this is more for the bride than the groom)
  4. Do you have favorite foods.
  5. Are there any special wedding traditions that mean something to either one of you.
  6. What do you mean to each other.
  7. Do you like to hang out with a few friends at a time or is your motto the more the merrier.
  8. And last but not least what describes the perfect wedding to each of you.
Really discuss these items with your fiance, because this is what you’ll refer back to when making most of your future wedding decisions. This will also be a good time for you to get an idea of anything that your fiance feels is important and should be included in the wedding during your planning.
And of course have fun with this and never forget why you're getting married in the first place.
PS: Go through this excerise before you talk to your sets of parents it will give you a clear idea of what you what before other people start putting in their two cents.
