Happy Valentines Day

I have always love Valentine’s Day. Even when I was single I thought it was a great way to eat chocolate with my girlfriends and watch sappy movies. I am lucky enough to have a job based around love… and I am even luckier to have a life surrounded with love.

To my Valentines.. Andy and Easton.. Thanks for being the amazing men in my life!!!

My Favorite Things..Part 5


The Water…

Some of first and favorite memories of growing up were of swimming. I love to swim… in lakes, pools, bath tubs… anything!!! Countless hours were spent at the local pool in the summer and when I turned 16 there was no question on what I wanted to do… Be a Lifeguard! My favorite places in the country all have one thing in common, they are near bodies of water. We were married in Okoboji, Iowa, my favorite lake while I was growing up, We now live close to Lake Minnetonka and spend countless hours trolling around in the sun and my favorite type of vacations are on large boats while cruising in the Carribean. I feel like there is something very calming about water and I feel very lucky to live in a state with more than 10,000 lakes! My favorite weddings are also near the water. We are lucky enough to help couples plan their dream weddings in backyards and we have planned numerous weddings on Prior Lake and weddings on South Center Lake, Lake Minnetonka and even Lake Superior!

My favorite things for the water are

  1. A well-broken in Adirondack Chair to sit by the water and relax
  2. I love my Havaiana’s flip flops. I spent the last 27 years of my life not knowing about these and then last year I bought a pair on a whim. TRUE BLISS occurred and I will never go back. Great for brides and bridesmaids sore feet as well!
  3. My third favorite thing I love for the water is… a creative and fun bride and groom!! My couple wake boarded for their first dance 2 years ago!

My Favorite Things.. Part 3

My computer, Iphone and Ipad…
Yes I will admit it, I Love technology and specifically my Apple Products. I feel in love about 5 years ago and do not think there is any turning back now! I love how they all perfectly sync together perfectly, I love how they all serve their seperate functions and make my job as a wedding planner so much easier. I am excited to implement my ipad more! I have had it for a while, but now I have all of my photos on it and am learning new tricks! I do not think that you need many accesorries for these technology wonders, but here are a few of my favorites…

  1. I love my pink Speck Laptop cover… Not only for the color, but because it prevents cracks and scratches as I throw it in my purse.
  2. I think an arm band for your iphone is key if you are using it while walking or working out. I love to just put on my tunes and get a good sweat!
  3. I love this Speck Ipad Cover, I do not have this… Yet, but I love the stylish look!
  4. I recently bought Things for my Mac and my iphone and it has created a whole new level of organization for myself.
