Okay peeps...Part One of the most amazing wedding I have ever seen. This wedding video is incredible. So incredible, I want to get married again just so I can hire Jim Altieri (and Carla Ten Eyck for photo). Just when you think it's over, there's more.
The picture in the vintage locket (shown next to her earrings) is her mom who passed away. Grab a tissue...maybe a couple. The wedding and reception took place in her dad's neighborhood on the water. The convertible is her dad's too. The music selection is pure magic. You will be able to actually feel the love thru your computer....watch and see...click below.

Carla - If you read this...I can't wait to see your pics. Is there a photo shoot in Florida anytime soon!?!?!

My girlfriend, Rebecca, is opening up an adorable Vintage Candy Store off of Park Avenue. It will be stocked with scrumptious sweets, Good Humor ice cream bars, popcorn and more! Picture this....a wood door with an old fashioned bell, hardwood floors, paper bags, bright colored candy and the smell of sugar you remember growing up. I can't wait til it opens!! I will send everyone the link once her website is up and running.

My girlfriend's son, Will, had a backyard camp party for his birthday. I love this theme for a birthday or even for a friday night playdate. (with just a handful of boys) I know it's probably too cold to do this now, but I always like to think of birthday themes ahead of time so I can shop early. Just grab gingham fabric, grill some hot dogs, do a smores basket and make campfire cupcakes...and you've got yourself a party! For the campfire cupcakes, I melted hard cinnamon and butterscotch candies in the oven for about 5 minutes. Once, they cooled, I broke them apart to look like fire. No time for homemade frosting this time, so we used canned frosting, edible rock candy (which I got from Dylan's Candy Bar..you can also use Nerd candy) and some pretzel sticks for the fire logs. How cute are they?!? We ran out of "fire" so did some cute little toy frogs and lizards on the rest. The treat bags were camo hankies filled with compass, mini flashlight, gummy snakes and some rock candy. How cute is this????

I was at my girlfriend Laura's yesterday when she make me the most delicious bowl of chili I have ever had. I like my chili like I like my men... sweet and spicy. (just kidding) She made it with ground turkey and it was absolutely fabulous. It is super easy (like some people I know) Perfect on a cold night like tonight...enjoy!
