Big Hello Day...

Today I met a new/old friend for the first time. I met my friend (name blank until I check with her for permission) from the blog Bodaat...blogging one day at a time. We had such fun getting to know each other and I got to know her kind fiancee as well. We had great conversations and I really enjoyed meeting them both. They came in town for a work convention but will get to spend a few days in Portland just exploring and wandering. I hope they love it as much as I do. I can't believe I forgot to ask her why her blog is named Bodaat? Hmmm... I'll let you know when I find out. She took a few pictures of us together but if they are as bad as I think I'm willing to pay her to either not post them or to photoshop Jennifer Aniston in as my double. (It's such a natural substitution really!)

Also we talked about her sister Aartilla who has this amazing blog and video show. Watch one episode and I PROMISE you'll be hooked.

I've also been busy, busy working on the website and launch of my new business with friends of The Balanced Bride. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go check out the website and give me feedback. Be brutal. I can take it. Sort of. ;-)

Okay, that's it for today. Family is healthy and well and I am just looking forward to curling up on the sofa and watching As Time Goes By on PBS for the millionth time. I never tire of that series.! Here are some funny outtakes just for my in-laws!




Love and hugs to you all,

Jan

Ha Ha Ha... I'm rolling on the floor laughing. I can't believe I never got that. What a goofball I am.

Thanks Deanna!!!! You made my day.

I think it is the coolest idea ever. Makes me want to remarry. I think it is also very simple and soothing. I can see an anxious bride breathing a little easier as soon as she finds your site..

Now for brutal (only because you asked and I always aim to please ;) )

I love love the logo on the menu offering page but the one on the homepage with the standard clip art bride and groom doesn't do it for me. It just isn't as calming or classic as the other logo or as the photographs. The homepage is the least attention grabbing and doesn't have any "WOWZA".The menu sounds divine and is my favorite page(maybe a little bigger font on the menu page). I hope you aren't sorry you asked now!!

HUGS and thanks for sharing!! BTW I meet the people several times too. ;) Jen

Jen you are awesome! Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it. I know what you mean. The logo is getting there but not really there yet ya know? I'll keep fiddling until I get it right. Thanks again. I love your site by the by!
