#32 – Megan
He works nights and I deliver newspapers (at 3AM) and I go to college full time and we own a business together, which when we’re not doing our other jobs– we are doing that. So any time we are together or able to talk to each other is so very special. We do a lot of “free” things, like go to parks, cook (he just watches — we don’t want any fires!), borrow DVD’s from friends to watch (while cuddling of course ), etc. But, my favorite thing of all is listening to him talk– even if we can’t be face-to-face. I love his voice.
I met up with the makers of Whimsy & Spice at a holiday fair at Christmas, and have no idea how I forgot to write about them! [thank goodness for Etsy!] Whimsy & Spice is a delicious company out of Brooklyn that makes sweets all with a dash of spice…chocolate gingersnaps, cardamom marshmallows….they’re all dee-lish, and you can work with them to create favors for your guests, or pop a few cookies into OOT bags. Your guests will love you.

The NY Post is looking for local ladies who are recently engaged that opted for a smaller engagement ring, family heirloom or semi-precious stone alternative in effort to be more economically savvy in our crazy economic times. Or maybe, she just thinks big rocks are passe or wanted a colorful stone instead…whatever the case, the Post is looking for you! If you’re interested in sharing your story or having your picture in the paper, contact Wendy at firstname.lastname@example.org

I love this little treestump charm from Etsy seller OneElf. You can personalize it with 2 initials, one for you and one for your hunny. I got one for myself because, well, I just couldn’t help myself! Definitely check out some of the other charms she makes…they could make adorable gifts for your flower girls or bridesmaids.
