Slow Marriage

January 14, 2021

Several years ago I learned about The Slow Food movement. Have you heard of it? Founded by an Italian, its mission is to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life, and combat our dwindling interest in the food we eat. There is much about the Slow Food […]

The Turning of Time

January 1, 2021

The older I get, the more that time confounds me. This year has been eons long, but high school was just the other day. My children are just kids, but my oldest will enter her twenties in less than one month. In my mind, I am still a teenager . . . or at the […]

With a global pandemic still raging, the role of “the gathered” at weddings has been altered. Our weddings in 2020 have been much smaller, incorporated Zoom, or simply been postponed. And almost always for the sake of community. Sure, elopements and micro-weddings are trending; understandably so. And they have their place. But what I find […]

Gimme a Break

September 4, 2020

I had no blog. Again. Every week my job is to post a blog on Thursdays. I have an editorial calendar. I should have blogs “in the can.” Easy enough. But it hasn’t been lately.

This is 26

July 23, 2020

Tuesday morning I got up before my husband, and hit the road. My bike is sanity these days. After returning, I brewed my other form of sanity – Scottish Breakfast tea. The morning wasn’t too hot yet, so I wandered onto my back patio with my favorite mug full of tea. There, I found this […]

Telling the Story of Marriage

Rain was scheduled this past weekend in Austin. In fact, at one point the forecasters were preparing us for monsoons and Wizard of Oz tornadic events. For my couple, the weather was one more thing on a long list of challenges leading up to May 16, 2020, their wedding date. Now, small teaching moment: What […]

Much is different these days, and we may never return to how things were before Covid-19. But we will adapt, change, and overcome; weddings included. There will be a day when we all are together again celebrating marriage, but even when that time comes, it likely won’t be how we did it before. And in […]

It’s a Mess

April 16, 2020

Well, this photo about sums up my life lately. And it probably sums up yours, as well. What a chaotic, frightening, sad, lonely, overwhelming, dark time. What a mess. There it is. I’ve named it, and you can probably add some feelings to that list. And even if none of these feelings resonate with you, […]
