As most of you may know my name is Alexine and I just recently got married in 2007. I planned my own wedding and was able to make it happen with the help of my wonderful husband and family. The goal behind this blog is to share what I learned with other brides to be. My Wedding Planning Checklist article was created from my notes and personal experience.
We were married on the harbor in one of the little towns I grew up in on the south shore of Massachusetts. The weather was beautiful and sunny and everyone had so much fun. Of course none of this would be possible without the love of my life.
My husband and I met when I was in my last year of community college in Seattle, Washington. At the time I had just recently graduated from high school and was looking around the United States for a four year university to transfer into and finish up my degree. I was planning to stay single and get out of Washington but my husband stole my heart and I decided to finish up at the University of Washington.
Only two months after I walked through Husky Stadium and received my Bachelors of Arts, I walked down the aisle and married the love of my life. For the most part the wedding was what I thought it would be and more. Of course there are always a few slip ups or misunderstandings, but I didn’t worry because no one noticed but me. I danced and danced my heart out all night long at the wedding. This is one night of my life I’ll never forget.
Now here we are happily married with two kitties and our first house together. For stability and to avoid argument we have set up some ground rules to keep everything a fifty-fifty split and make sure all our feelings get heard. This keeps our focus on our love for one another and not on the little aggravations or frustrations along the way.
This all may sound like a corny love story but it is where I get the inspiration for my writings. We all have different paths and experiences that make us who we are and this just so happens to be the backbone to my writing. I hope you enjoy the pieces and if you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them at the end of the piece of writing. This way I can address anything I feel comfortable with to help clarify or brainstorm an idea for your relationship or your wedding.
