and away we go !

Hi! Incase you're not one of my friends I've coaxed into checking out this blog, welcome! I'm Ana, a 24-year-old recent grad of The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM).  This isn't my first rodeo at blogging.  I recently had a Tumblr, LuckyPennySF, that I used for awhile to place, store, and find all of my fashion inspiration images.  However, I started to get pretty burnt out on the same editorials and 14-year-old girls.  SO.  Here I am.  Still want to know more about me?  Okay...

I recently got engaged to the most wonderful man on the planet, Aaron (no really, he's the best), and we've just started the wedding planning process.  I'm so excited and want to do everything RIGHT NOW!  But, our wedding isn't until October 2012 which leaves me plenty of time to  stress over figure out every single detail.  Currently, I'm keeping busy by working part-time at an awesome retail store that pays pretty well and my co-workers are pretty rad too.  Aaron and I just moved into a new apartment about 4 months ago, and while it is still a work in progress, I love it.

I've been asked by just about every vendor in the wedding industry to describe "us" (Aaron & I) or "my style/taste".  And to tell you the truth, I had a harder time figuring this out than I thought I would.  Turns out, I have a LOT of preferences and a whole bunch of different styles that appeal to me.  My hope is that this blog can become a place where I get to know myself a little better; a place where I can figure out what "our" and "My" style is.  So, to end my first post, I thought I would let you guys know what you can expect to find on here in the future:

  • The places I'll (We'll) go
  • The latest on our wedding: vendors, inspiration, my experiences, and general ramblings of an engaged woman
  • The things I want to wear and maybe even some of the things I actually DO end of wearings (if I ever let Aaron get close enough with his camera to take my picture)
  • The stuff I buy
  • The food I'm cooking.  The food other people are cooking.  The food I wish I was eating at this very moment.
  • The best places, stores, and restaurants in/around San Francisco according to me
  • The way our house looks.  The way I want our house to look
  • The quest to master Photoshop (already in progress! see below!)

....you get the idea.

See you soon!

Adorable blog, and looking forward to reading about your adventures ahead!
The only minor quibble I have is that the font looks a little strange on my computer and it's hard for me to read the text- but it could just be my computer :/

ana said...

thank you all for the kind words! It's really reassured me that starting this blog was one of the best decisions I've made for myself in awhile and I'm super excited to share this journey with you as well. Thanks again <3

Genevieve - I've tried to make some adjustments to the font. Is it any better for you? I really appreciate the feedback. Anything I can do to make my blog better is always welcomed :) Still new to the whole HTML/CSS code stuff

Welcome to the blogosphere, ana! I can't wait for future posts! You and your fiance look lovely together! And as far as html goes, when I first started mine, I just looked up a million tutorials - on everything! But honestly, your blog already looks a lot better than many. Good luck! I'm sure you already follow a bunch of wedding blogs, but I'll suggest one that I think is great:
