I’m fed up and I give up!

I’m fed up and I give up!

It’s tap tap tap on the keyboard again, a sound I’ve hardly heard in the last few weeks, maybe even longer, yet it’s so refreshing. Here I sit recounting the last few months of 2013 with a huge sigh and relief that it’s over. Life got in the way last year. Life! How can it get in the way?! Well, it did.

I stopped doing everything except the necessary to make sure that my family didn’t fall apart, that we stayed strong and kept it together through the challenges that we faced, that I faced.

Wedding Theme: A Day At The Races

Wedding Theme: A Day At The Races

Most of us have fairly traditional ideas and images in mind when it comes to weddings. We imagine the white dress, the black tux, the flawlessly arranged flowers at every turn, and a fashionable, formal set of onlookers. It’s a beautiful, tried and true setup. However, many couples also like to put a twist on the popular image and establish a broader theme for a wedding’s fashion or style, such as a masquerade or a “black tie” formal atmosphere.

The birth and death of wedding traditions

The birth and death of wedding traditions

To kickstart my return and tenderly (with writers block and finger cramps) jet myself back into the head seat at Alice, I’ve just found this  groovy info graphic on wedding traditions to show you. I’m a big fan of breaking tradition and creating the kind of wedding the screams “this is us!!!” however, in saying that, I don’t think they should necessarily be wiped out – rather, pick and choose what means something to you, then either keep it, twist it or recreate it entirely yourselves.
