Personal

I am vacillating between two extremes.

One is the panic in realizing that my wedding is less than 100 days away. With such a loooong engagement and destination wedding, the wedding has always been a vague, distant concept that I couldn’t really touch or see or smell. I had other weddings on my plate. Your weddings.

But then I did the calculation the other week and realized, “Holy s#!t! 94 days?! That’s, like, soon. That’s real. Things are about to get legit!”

And so there might have been some panicking in the way Type-As do: lists!
Caterer, in-season flowers, gown alterations, music, boudoir session, honeymoon, Crest White Strips, favors, hunting down RSVPs, date to get the marriage license, what goes into name changing, do I really need that extra dinner roll?, hunting down more RSVPs… Deep breaths.

And then there’s the other: springtime bliss. I love spring like crazy. It makes me feel whole again after the bitter cold of winter. I can get outside and run and run and run. (Helloooooo, Broad Street!  Who else will be pounding the pavement with me this weekend?) Engagement sessions and weddings out the wazoo and it’s spring and the earth is so happy and so am I.

I shall focus on the latter extreme. Busy but blissful. Windows open, doors open, flip-flopped-out bliss. Ahhhhhhh!

In that vein, I give you this month’s Facebook cover images: pretty, little cherry blossoms around the Philadelphia Art Museum. Click to download these images and see them at their full size and resolution.

Deep breaths.

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

I’m pretty sure I’m one of the 5 people in the world who doesn’t loooooove fall. I enjoy apple cider, pumpkin carving, and the amazing colors in this area but I know that fall is just a few short weeks away from being winter. Winter means frozen fingers and toes, layers that make me look stay-puft, runny noses, bleak landscapes, and a general regional attitude of “I’m sick and cold and miserable so stay away from me.”So as much as I would like to enjoy this season, I just can’t fully give in because I know how bad it will be all too soon. In this area it seems we get a few glorious days of fall before we all have to break out our parkas an ...

Happy birthday to me!
BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!Mine, to be precise. It’s 11am and I’m parched and dehydrated from my party last night. Don’t confuse this for the post-party hangovers of my 20s that resulted from plenty of booze and uncomfortable shoes. This feeling is the result of an overabundance of salt from my CHEESE PARTY. Oh yes.I am beyond proud of my friends who contributed about 18 different kinds of delicious lactose products. Here are some of the winners: a bright green pesto gouda, cinnamon asiago, mango stilton, a Dutch gouda that was special ordered by my friend Neil across the pond, a mustard seed cheddar called Red Dragon, bucheron, cracked pepper Polly ...

This is the time for colors in this area. Just look out your window. This is why friends and family think I’m a ghost this time of year. It’s the busiest part of the year for me because the foliage is so vibrant that everyone wants a piece of it! My October dates booked up lickity split and then November did too when I had to let people know October was closed. This means that there are still a ton of sessions and weddings coming up on the blog before the end of the year. And we’re talking some fantastic imagery too! Indoor weddings, outdoor weddings, city hall weddings, boudoir sessions, and engagement sessions like you wouldn’t belie ...
