not your average Tuesday.

Today was not a typical Tuesday in my world. I have a load of vacation days to use up before the end of the year, so I took today as a vacation day to prep our Thanksgiving menu, grocery shop, and relax. I had a great run this morning in the 60-degree sunshine, which is totally uncharacteristic of Rhode Island in late November. I even managed to find these very specific "boudoir" cookies at Tony's Colonial Food on Federal Hill to use in my Thanksgiving trifle.

All these little successes aside, I got an email today at 3:23pm that made me smile from ear-to-ear: our wedding is currently the "Real Wedding" on The Bride's Guide on Martha Stewart Weddings. It had been in the works since June, so my jaw dropped when I saw the email that it was finally live.

I even took a screen shot of the homepage to capture our names on the Martha homepage for posterity:

When you click the link, here's the first shot you see:

After {literally} years of hard work in planning, it is nice to show the world how our wedding day transpired. My husband is truly a saint for putting up with my endless eBay searching, brainstorming, and general craziness. I am so happy that all of my wonderful vendors got some credit where credit is definitely due.

I am ecstatic.  This was certainly not your average Tuesday!  I can't wait to talk more about the wedding...but for now, I'll let the brains at Martha do the talking. See our Real Wedding here!


P.S. This is proof positive that you can make long-distance relationships work :)
