  The last time I caught y’all up to speed on my 2015 resolutions was last month (here). This week the most exciting “to-do” on my list is happening. Leslee Mitchell is coming to visit me starting on Thursday and we’ll be spending five days of one-on-one shooting and learning together. We are going to be visiting some of my favorite cities in Texas and both of us are maybe a little too excited about all the time we’re going to be spending together. I’m not sure if I’ll be saying “Meh” again and stepping out on posts while we are doing our creative…

Mara Hoffman Second Bridal Offering http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/02/24/mara-hoffman-second-bridal-offering/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/02/24/mara-hoffman-second-bridal-offering/#comments Tue, 24 Feb 2015 21:54:35 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=22210

  So – I felt like I had to preface this post with saying that I’m not going back on my dress decision! I did stop looking (and pinning, and researching) other dresses and designers once I “said yes to the dress” and after my first fitting a few weeks ago I feel even more sure about my choice. But, Mara Hoffman recently launched her second collection of wedding gowns and it felt wrong not to share the stunning images of the gorgeous dresses. Mara “Devotional Collection” of bridal pieces are only available through her site. True to her aesthetic, the collection…

  The List. Once I got engaged and the ball started rolling on the planning, I kind of thought that a similar situation would play out in my family like that scene in Father of the Bride when the Banks family is deliberating the guest list. George Banks: “Two hundred and fifty dollars a head means that for the four of us to attend this wedding in our own home will cost one thousand dollars. Therefore, we are not getting up from this table until we cut this list down to the bare minimum….All right, let’s start eliminating.” We all know how this ends…they have…

Overlooking the Bay http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/02/19/overlooking-the-bay/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/02/19/overlooking-the-bay/#comments Thu, 19 Feb 2015 11:00:47 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=22520

  I think that if we made a ritual out of regularly coming to this overlook, we might actually end up happier. Bringing a bottle of wine and a blanket like we did on our latest visit was the perfect way for us to take in the view. And if you get tired of just staring at the pretty view, there are so many trails that you can hike along the coast line – they still overlook the water and the bridge but make you enjoy the environment and atmosphere that much more. I remember that the first time my fiancé hiked along the…
