How not to coast and associated ramblings.

This is a post in three sections.  The first is an evangelical call for action.  The second is lessons learned.  The third is on why I got married.  It only took me two and a half years to figure out.  Part 1. Well. Wasn’t this year fun?  We made friends.  We built a business.  We [...]

In the Any Other Reader Survey that you all so kindly filled in waaaay back in November, some of you mentioned that you’d like more posts by menfolk.

A City Girl’s Country Wedding – Part 1

I wanted to call this “Battle Without Honour or Humanity…Part 1″.  I know this badass scene in Kill Bill isn’t exactly the most appropriate sub-title for a post about a wedding; especially one as filled with beauty and grace as Alanah and Robert’s.  But there’s something in it.  I love that it was playing through [...]

Why do we wed?

I’ve mentioned before, my parents aren’t married. They’ve both been married, just not to each other. They both had a marriage, a complicated divorce and at least one child (in my mother’s case-a 6 month old me) in tow when they met. 5 months later, they moved in together. That was 23 and a half years [...]

Weekend Wonderings

I don’t know how much I need to say about this.  I found it here, and I think it’s so, so true.  Pick up a pen this weekend, readers…and write.  Something.  Anything.  Just write.

Any Other Photo {Helen and S}

When some people submit their Any Other Photos (which, by the way, if you haven’t done yet, why the hell not? We want to see them!) it is about capturing one special moment. A place in time that they want to remember forever. Helen’s  (who blogs over here at Postcards from the West Country) photo though is [...]

Adventures of a Wedding Belle – A little bit hitched.

It’s the 8th December today, and that means many things. It means that there are 16 shopping days left until Christmas, that there are 3 days until until I party it up London-style with Bella and Gemma, it means that Emilia Charlotte is FIVE WHOLE DAYS OLD and that in 9 months time our Bella [...]

Doing what you love.

When I was 16, I had this quote scrawled on my wall – fais ce que tu aimes, aime ce que tu fais, et le monde t’appartiendra.  If sounds much better in French but basically means, “do what you love, love what you do and the world will be yours”.  I believed it then and [...]
