(But, seriously, though–have you seen the save the dates on this girl? Someone toss a bouquet my way!) For more on why we’re head over heels for Sarah’s heartwork, check out [...]
Today’s tip comes from (not) just another hardworking chick: Bridget Kuglin of Sweet B Designs. (See her adorable logo to complete the pun.)

Today’s tip comes to you from Javier Chavez, a language teacher based in Bielefeld, Germany, which you may remember from last year’s Deutsch workcation.

Read about why they chose the name F/Stop Poetry here. For a quick taste, visit their wedding portfolio: [...]

Chris and I share a San Cris connection. Last year, Chris set [...]

Take last week: a friend introduced me to the work of Tramaine Brathwaite, founder of MaineDrama Productions and the filmmaker behind Unheard–a new film about sexual abuse–and I swear, the earth moved under my feet.
