As a newbie-blogger, I thought I would use this first post to explain a little about why I am starting this blog.
First, a little background information about me: I grew up in Baltimore and currently live in coastal Virginia with my fiancé and our four rescued fur-babies, two cats Apollo & Artemis and two dogs Andromeda (Andie) & Nala. I will inevitably be including photos of them in future posts because I take A LOT of pet pictures.
The primary reason that I am starting this blog is to document our wedding-planning process. We are about 10 months out from our wedding date right now and have already been engaged for about a year. Our long engagement has afforded me the opportunity to DIY a lot of projects for the wedding.
I have had so much fun experimenting and crafting in the process and my hope is to share some of these projects with other DIY-brides! I am also going to try to document the cost of each project and compare it to retail prices, because many of these DIY projects are great for keeping wedding costs down.
I love crafting and creating things, especially using items found around the house and yard; another section of this blog will be devoted to non-wedding-related crafts that I complete.
Another fun fact about me- I have been a vegetarian for about 15 years so I’ve also added a “recipes” section to the blog where I hope to post some of my favorites.
I look forward to sharing my projects with you all in the future and am excited to start this blogging journey.
