In case you haven’t heard by now, I’m getting married tomorrow! And for the next week, I will be away from the online world for my honeymoon. Because of a lot of last minute issues that arose, I was not able to do all the things I wanted to vacation proof my blog. So please, excuse my lack of replies via commenting and social networks. I will do my best to get back to everyone as soon as I return the first week of May. Plus, I have special plans for all my wedding photos, video, etc. that will be shared with everyone, probably around mid-May. :)

Preview for the week of 27 April 2009

In the final part of my photo series based on shots I took at the Desert Botanical Gardens, I will be posting one of my favorite parts of the gardens – the butterfly pavilion.

I wish I could say I will have another post next week, but I believe the photo post and my Fetching Friday when I return may be it. I’ll do my best, but as of right now, it’s 10pm, the bouquets are not made yet, so needless to say, I probably won’t get much more done in the way of writing as I had hoped. But I have lots of great articles planned for May, so I’ll make up for it – promise.

Facebook Humor

This was a video I found at Mashable in an article about Facebook manners. I thought it was pretty amusing, and I hope you like it as well.

    Hey Kristi!!! Congratulations on your marriage!! I’ve read the story of how you came to know and fall in love with your fiance (your husband, by the time you get to read this) and the story is truly a modern fairy tale romance! I look forward to having mine come to life, hopefully sooner than later 😉
