First of all I want to say, "Happy Birthday Pop-o". You are the sweetest and dearest Pop-o a girl could have. I love you!
I think its appropriate to explain a few of my links. You see, I didn't even know what the heck Blogging was until I visited my cousin in Ohio and she showed me what her husband was working on. I was like my friend who after trying to explain "blogspam" thought it sounds like something terribly messy!
When I returned home I logged onto his Blog-hints website and created my own. I was so excited about it! So I think its only fair to share this with all of you. If you enjoy reading blogs you may want one of your own. This website will help you.
As for the Stamping website, I think its a prime example of the business opportunity that the knowledge of blogging can build towards. Not only that but I remember stamping being a great thing that you can do to save money on invitations, announcements, and stationary in general. I'm not sure I'm going to have the time to put together something this personal for my "Save the Date" cards but I think its a great idea. This site is run by people I know and love and recommend it highly!
If any of you have any interesting web-sites please comment on them. I'd love to take a look!
I had the day off from work today so I made a little progress. I finally got a hold of the Museum of Art. I have had my eye on them since I catered a wedding there last month. Unfortunately, they are in the process of hiring an Events coordinator who will be in charge of this space. I was hopeful that I might be received with interest and excitement. I should have known that the University would be preoccupied in creating obstacles for people instead of creating opportunities. I mean that is the evil irony of it all isn't it. I liked the idea of this space but perhaps I will remain faithful to the original idea of having it in my parents backyard (wherever that may be).
I realized that I booked my wedding on LABOR DAY weekend. I may need to change the date! Perhaps for earlier. I just really liked the idea of a September wedding, for some reason. Probably because Italy is so gorgeous in the fall. Everything is being harvested- the figs, the nuts, and the olives. Everything tastes amazing. Its just perfect. If I do have the wedding on Labor Day the backyard idea would be OK. I wouldn't have to worry about booking anything other than perhaps a church for a ceremony. I may not even do that. I know who I want to minister my wedding. He's a longtime friend of Kent's and mine.
Also I'm applying for a school that starts in October in Seattle, WA called Antioch. They have a very interesting and accredited program in Art Therapy. I thought traveling and then moving altogether made sense. You know, get it all done at once.
Well, I suppose we'll see. There is so much to consider! Everyone should petition John Deere to send Pop-o home!!! We have a wedding to plan!
