Looking to make your wedding a multi-day affair with your friends and family from all over the country? A holiday weekend is a great option! Amanda & Eric's friends and family joined them this past September over Labor Day weekend to celebrate, laugh and dance the weekend away!

YOU STILL HAVE TIME! Don't fret! There's a little over a week to get it together, but if you're planning to decorate for Thanksgiving and haven't yet - here's your dose of inspiration. Whether you cook & host your family, are going to a "Friends"-Giving celebration or just want to celebrate the day at home before heading out to dinner (as Nicole & I will be doing!), here are some fun ideas and suggestions.
Inclement weather on your wedding is something most couples fear. Rain and wet on white dresses. Humidity on prepped hair. Travel problems. Plans have to change. Precautions have to be put into place... what a mess, right?
Read this- An interview with my dad: Catholicism & coming out - By Cameron Esposito I identify with this article so much.
My mom Amy was the first person to text me today after the SCOTUS decision because she knows that marriage is something I'm looking forward to with Nicole. I cried. I know that it's been difficult for us both to come out & handle the "coming out". But to have my strongly catholic mother support me today and everyday in becoming the person I truly am is the greatest gift.
Today is about more than just equality for me & the woman I love & am going to marry. It's about thousands of families & couples. It truly is about LOVE. #lovewins
Today I'm remembering my incredible trip to Japan, which was exactly 1 year ago! My brother, Seth is currently living there and treated me to a trip as a graduation gift/gift to cover pretty much any future birthdays or christmases. I was lucky in that it was Japan's cherry blossom season when I was in Japan and then DC's when I returned so I had a long time with lots of beauty. I spent about 3 weeks with my brother traveling between his home in Atsugi, where the Navy Base is (he's a Weapons Systems Officer on the F-18 Super Hornet with the VFA-102 Diamondbacks) and his apartment in Tokyo, as well a trip out to Kyoto. I spent the trip in a walking boot, having broken my foot and ankle in 4 places which was annoying, but it wasn't going to stop me!
Enjoy this little picture story of my adventures!
Now who wants ramen??!! Let's go!!
