The first year I moved to the Panhandle of WV from the suburbs of Chicago, I laughed. That year was a very warm winter with averages well above normal and almost no snow. In fact, I remember calling my Mom the second week in Jan to tell her that it was 55 degrees outside and I was doing yard work! Something that never... more.
I have lived in the WV Panhandle for about 5 years now and this winter has been quite snowy. As I write this we currently have 14 inches of snow on the ground and more is still expected.

It has been a little over 5 years since I have moved from the NW suburbs of Chicago, IL to the rural-ish Panhandle of WV.

Deep plum, radiant orchid and sangria.:::... more.

(No surprise there) But what many of you don't know is that I have spent the last 12 years building my party closet, and I am still adding to it. Guests come... more.
Last week the NY International Bridal Market wrapped up its fall 2014 showcase. It was 5 days of pure wedding bells bliss as the runways were light up with fantastic fashions for every type of bride. These designs will start making their way into the bridal salons shortly after the first of the year, in plenty of time of... more.
We live in a time of complete wedding personalization and customization (which I adore). AND wedding fashions are slowly starting to come around, yet most of what is worn is still mass made. Huh?!
