Just getting started:
Finally, I found a reason to start a blog of my own. You are probably thinking that I didn’t need one but I am the kind of person, who needs a reason to commit to something. Now that I am planning a wedding, keeping everyone on both coasts in sync about the upcoming nuptials seemed to be the jolt I needed to get my personal blog up and running. And the more I blog, the more I love it. For someone, who is used to writing corporate docs and marketing materials most days, I am still trying to find my personal blogger’s voice. My free voice, as I like to call it. It is slowly coming to me.
What you may find here: wedding info including things to do and places to stay in Vancouver and Vancouver Island, culinary tips or recipes I have tried, gushy tales (i can be pretty sappy) or tales from the trenches (start-up life), products and places I love or think you should stay away from, and anything else that comes to mind. I am usually a pretty organized individual/writer but I think I will let this blog have a life of it’s own.
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to share your thoughts with me.
Here’s the skinny on my other life:
