Here we go again, back in the thick of it. After a lovely break, the semester is in full force attack mode. And it feels equal parts awesome and oh my god this is happening. And then there is the super bowl! And all the ads! And what kind of marketing and advertising professional doesn’t write about the big day? But, first, let’s talk about all the fantastic things I was lucky enough to experience over break.
First, I got married! Yay! It was just perfect, which I suppose every bride says (or should because you just married the love of your life, so be happy already), but it really was. I have to give myself a pat on the back here, planning and executing a major event is no easy task, especially juggling work and school. I’m proud to say I was able to develop a vision and story about me and the mister, and bring that to fruition on so many different levels, from room design, to menu, to music. It was a ridiculous amount of fun and I wish I could throw a big party every year (but won’t because so much money)! And now I get to spend the rest of my life with the best person I know, who makes me happy every day. Best day ever.
(Just look at these gorgeous images from our amazing photographer, Miss Erica Ferrone. Those little gold animals were one of my favorite details - escort cards done differently. And how pretty are my bridesmaids? The whole thing was gorgeous.)
Right after the wedding we left for our honeymoon: South Africa! As you can imagine, it was an incredible experience. Describing the trip won’t really do it justice except to say that Cape Town and Kruger are unlike anywhere we ever traveled and it was an eye opening experience - the culture, people, food, and land are so amazing. If you can, please go. You will not regret the trip. Here are some of our favorite shots:
Now, it’s back to reality, but in a good way. It was great to come home refreshed and excited for the next phase of our lives, personally and professionally. It is an adjustment getting back into a school schedule with my main focus on the next big step: job hunting. (And more blogging, super bowl recap tomorrow.) But it’s game face time. So bring it, 2014. I’m ready for you.
