wedding dress

photo by Leah Lee Photography This week marks my one year wedding anniversary with Peter. This year has been a whirlwind of life… We’ve traveled across the sea, jumped into oceans, walked on ancient ruins, eaten our weight in pizza, danced silly dances with a 7 year old… We’ve experienced so much joy and even heartbreak. But here we are, one year later a family of three expecting one more… There is so much I could say about the fact that Jonah will be a big brother, and Peter a father, and me a second time mom… All of that I will get to over the next few months… Believe me, from maternity fashion, to nursery decor, ...Read More
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue… It’s been a while since I told a Jonah story and so let me share a good one. Okay… two good ones. The first one is from a few months ago. The night before Jonah turned 7, we asked him if there was anything he wanted to say during his final hours as a 6 year old. “Anything?” he said excitedly. “Yes, anything.” “Anything, like, in the world?” “Yep. Anything at all.” “Okay,” he gulped. “Mother fucker.” We burst into laughter, then composed ourselves, then burst back into laughter again and then put our (tilted/twisted) parenting hat on and  I asked: “Where did you learn that?” “From you! Where else?” I can’t help but ...Read More
I could write a really long intro about the announcement I’m about to make, but let me just cut to the chase: Our wedding has been featured on J.Crew  and I am literally bursting at the seams with excitement!!! JCREW. AHHH! In August 2013, just a few weeks after Peter proposed, I was lucky to have to go New York to shoot some videos with LifetimeMoms. While I was there, I not only ate my weight in pizza and champagne with one of my besties, BUT I made an appointment at the JCrew bridal salon on 5th Ave just cuz. The Percy gown was the second dress I tried on… Simple, elegant, comfortable and ...Read More
One month ago, I married the man of my dreams and we spent the night dancing and laughing with our closest family and friends. Per his request, but mostly in my planning (perfectionist) state, I handed off a desired playlist to our trusted music aficionado, Jesse Kivel of Dart DJ. Of course we had our picks for special moments like the first dance (Otis Redding’s “That’s How Strong My Love Is) , recessional music (Stevie Wonder’s “For Once in My Life”) and other important songs (Peter walked down to “Born to Run” by well, The Boss, of course). But, in my wildest dreams, I would have never thought that the song ...Read More
Almost two weeks ago, I  started to write a post…. March 26th. 10:30am… As I type this post, I’m sitting under a heat lamp with foils in my hair and a latte by my side. With just 72 hours to go until I say “I Do,” I’m in full bridal beautification mode and if I’m being honest, it’s kind of the best part of the planning process. This week, I’ve had, in no partcicular order (certainly not by rank of what hurts the worst): My eyebrows shaped and tweezed, waxing, laser hair removal, (Judaism = Hair issues), a manicure/pedicure, and now a cut, highlights, gloss and blowout. In just a couple hours (oh, ...Read More
