hello all -- i apologize for being MIA. we shipped the magazine at work, and now i'm at a work conference (i swear!) in las vegas. my first time back since my sister's wedding in '07, which was the reason i started this blog in the first place. so much has changed in my life and hers since then.

more on that when i don't have an *8am* meeting. cruelty, thy name is vegas work conference.

in the meantime, i've been a bad blogger. i owe you results for the watercolor map giveaway, and i have amazing photography and jewelry giveaways on deck if i can get myself organized. thank you as always for your patience! much to do and see, and more soon!

quick peek: personal

i owe you guys an explanation of why there's been nary a peep about my own wedding on here -- it's kind of a funny story, sorta -- there *has* been progress!

nopath.tumblr.com -- password: etsywedding

nothing too earthshaking, but i will pop my ideas in there as they arrive...
thank you all for reading!
