Thank you, Hurricane Irene/Word of advice for brides/Dishwashers are amazing, etc.

You may be surprised to read that Hurricane Irene isn’t just affecting the east coast; It’s also affecting Salt Lake City in a much less direct and less damaging way. Specifically, me, in the airport, just now. Keyword: Delta. (You might be able to guess where this story is going.) Delta—once again, has cancelled my flight. Full disclosure, the reason my flight can’t take off is because it never even made it here. It was supposed to come from New York, which is currently being walloped with nasty, hurricane weather. When the flight from NYC to SLC was cancelled, Delta…

The enormity of it all

I challenge you to find our play on words: See…

Wedding Planning 101: The wedding shoe journey

I’ve pondered this many times over that past few months: Why is it so hard to find the elusive “Perfect Wedding Shoes?” Why was it so easy to find my dress within the first week of being engaged, but those little beauties for my feet seem to be hiding far far away? Ladies, this is one thing people don’t tell you about planning your wedding: Finding the right shoes will be in the back of your mind CONSTANTLY. Every shoe you see is not quite right. The dye-able shoes are too typical. Normal heels aren’t special enough. It’s seriously depressing!…
