Weekly Round-Up

by in Main on

Don’t you love that New Year’s Eve is on Friday this year? I love the idea of starting a new year, new week and new outlook all at once. Today, we’re not only rounding up this week’s blog features, but we’re rounding out the year to welcome in 2011.

Katharine covered another wedding tradition this week: the choice to keep or change your last name in marriage. Katharine decided to keep her last name instead of taking her husband’s. What are your thoughts? Go to the post to weigh in on the war of names.

Emily reflected on the past year with a post full of her favorite experiences. Hot air balloons, two weddings, and Engage10 :: The Breakers. Yup, those sound like experiences I’d never forget either!

Katharine went from Harvard grad to SW editor and bride in one year! In between, there were weddings to plan, her brother’s graduation, bridal showers, and more!

To end the year, we all took a trip to see Santa! Here’s what we asked him for Christmas.

Happy Friday and happy New Year! Does anyone have a cool New Year’s Resolution or highlights from the past year?

P.S. Don’t forget…only a few more hours to submit your photos to our Mega Photo Contest!

Happy New Year’s Eve!

by in In The Office, Main on

That’s right, ladies + gents! It’s the last day of 2010!

Crazy how quickly the year has flown, isn’t it? To recap, Lara, Katharine, and I each took a look back at a few of our favorite moments, both personal and professional, from 2010. Click here to read Katharine’s post, here to read Lara’s (massively epic!) post, and here to read mine! And tune in on Monday for our 2011 resolutions!

P.S. We just couldn’t resist sticking a New Year’s hat on Paulina after we saw how cute we looked in her Santa hat :) Thanks, Nicole, for your graphic wizardry!

2010 was the best year ever. Read my entire Year in Review here on my personal blog. I traveled to Dallas, Seattle, Los Angeles (7 times), Minneapolis (3 times), Chicago, Atlanta (33 times), New York (4 times), Nashville (2 times), Las Vegas, Denver, Irvine, Pensacola (7 times), Indianapolis, Grand Cayman, Miami (thrice), Washington DC, Boston, Salt Lake City, West Palm Beach, St Lucia, Barbados, Trinidad, Houston, Phoenix, San Francisco, Maui, and I’m currently in Vail with my family. Phew! I earned my SkyMiles this year.

In between all of that crazy travel, we launched an awesome magazine, a new blog, did a ton of gorgeous shoots and saw Katharine walk down the aisle.

I’ve watched Katharine and Emily grow and take the reins with this gorgeous blog and the print edition. I love spending my days with them. Seriously, every day is a highlight!

I’ve also had a lot of personal milestones. I got to know my half-sister for the first time ever. Our families reconnected this past Father’s day. That has been awesome. I love my family. So many blessings!

But, the biggest highlight for me is the very reason we even got to do all of this in the first place: marriage. Marriage rocks.

I’ll be celebrating my five year wedding anniversary in March, and I’ve never been more in love. Forget what you hear in the news – it is possible to grow in marriage and love each other more than when you first met. I’m living it. It was not at all easy to get here, but the work of marriage has been the best work I’ve ever done. Highlight = husband.

I’m grateful to God for filling my heart so much this year. I’m ready for whatever is next, but I am very happy right here.
