Wedding Bowls

Today is my 9th Wedding Anniversary. I was given one of these custom pottery bowls as a wedding gift. It was and to this day is my most favorite gift to have received. And we still is it frequently; unlike our China.
It has since become my staple wedding gift and I believe most of the recipients feel the same way about it as I do :)
They make a great anniversary gift too!

wedding wednesday - FAIL

Since, the wedding invitation section of the website will not be updated for a few months, I have decided to put a different spin on Wedding Wednesday.
I don't feel much like talking about invitations without having the items on the website. And yes, I could talk about etiquette and such, but this seems a little more fun.
So till welcome to Wedding Wednesday- FAIL. Just a quick pic, video or a small funny wedding fail story. Perhaps it'll add a little chuckle to hump day :)

Blogger, we meet again...

So it happened again. My lapse on blogging. It's funny because I love blogging but as soon as things start getting crazy, blogging just doesnt make the list.
So what have we been up to since my last post? A lot. The biggest news - due to the downturn of the economy, Heather's new job and the addtion of baby #3 for me, we could not meet the demands of maintaing the storefront, the website and the party program. The storefont was the most demanding divison of the business with the least amount of reward. So after close to 6 years, we made the tough call to close it down.

Yesterday. I signed the released papers on storefront space.
Today though, we find ourselves in a great place. Our focus has been redirected we have big things planned for the two divisions of the company that we maintain.

I will not make promises to blog daily, as micro blogging on Twitter has become my new fav, but I will do better.
