Just wanted to take a moment to remember my Aunt Carol, who passed away one year ago today from complications of diabetes.  My goodness, how quickly a year goes by.  How quickly…  At our wedding, we made a donation to the American Diabetes Association instead of giving out favors at the end of the night.

We did it!

Well, we did it!  The wedding went off without a hitch.  Jay even said “I do” too early because we were so excited hehe.  This is a short post because I’m exhausted and we’re getting up at 5:30am to make sure we get to JFK with plenty of time to go to Mexico.  I may […]

Bridal Shower Fun

I went back to Long Island this past weekend to have a hair-style trial and a make-up trial.  The make-up was airbrushed and it looked pretty nifty.  I think I needed to wear blush though and not bronzer.  I didn’t feel my face was well enough defined on anywhere other than my mascara.

The One Where I Spent 15 Hours in Penn Station

So here’s my latest travel story.  I do want to say on record that I am 100% aware that delayed travel is one of the lesser of life’s worries in the scheme of things.  But everyone has a breaking point and when you constantly encounter “setbacks” getting places and you’ve been alone in a train […]

a long time coming

My cousin Matt graduates from the Police Academy in New York today.  He’s 22 years old; this has been 21 years in the making.  I am so proud of him, so happy for him.  This has been such a long time coming.  I cannot believe the day has finally arrived. Congratulations, Matt.  I love you […]

after all, there’s only one more sleep ’til Christmas

I know that technically it’s after midnight on Christmas by an hour but I figured I’d share some of my Christmas Eve. My mom always hosts Christmas Eve while my Grandma has Christmas Day.  Christmas Eve at my parents’ with my family is SO MUCH FUN.  My sisters and I usually go to 4:00 mass […]
