Where On Earth Is…

Carmen Sandiego. Remember that show? That’s who my fiancé said I looked like when I got dressed for our late Valentine’s Day celebration. We didn’t get a chance to celebrate because I was in Philly for my Breakfast at Tiffany’s bridal shower.


A New Year Do-Over

By now, I’m sure you’ve seen the above photo as you scrolled through your timeline. You probably almost ignored it until realizing you’ve felt the same way. Double take. Double tap. The truth is, I fully intended to start the New Year on the right foot. I had an idea how I wanted this year’s… Read More


An Agreement with God

Six months to one year. That’s the agreement I made with God. That was all the time I was willing to give to my server position. In the mean time, I prayed for patience. That He order my steps.

In The Name Of Love

This is going to sound weird. But. As happy as I am to marry my love, up until I found my dress, I felt, well, really lonely. It’s a very strange thing, I know. It’s almost hard to write because I never expected to feel that way. Especially because everyone says it’s the happiest time… Read More


17 Ways

My second annual blogaversary was three Fridays ago. April 17th. The day before Dress Shopping Saturday. I wanted to celebrate it the day of. I knew that I should. I even had multiple drafts ready to be published that week as a preview of what’s yet to come. I just…I don’t know.
