Ready, Set, Honeymoon!

Getting ready for a trip, I’m reminded of all the planning that went in to our honeymoon even in the midst of wedding prep.  I remember packing and unpacking, realizing our suitcases were too heavy, trying on shoes for comfort, and buying special electrical converters. Somehow through the fog of dress fittings and table arrangements, we managed to spend some quality time packing for our adventure. And it was fun!

If possible, reclaim a little time to plan together for those unforeseen honeymoon moments: when someone catches a cold, or your elegant clothes are soaked by a sudden downpour. Traveling together as newlyweds is in many ways a microcosm of life – and it’s priceless to know that you’ve got a steadfast partner by your side, to hold your hand as you explore and discover new places both around the world and within yourselves.

Blogs we love: Home Sweet Brocante

Home Sweet Brocante is an un-Craigslist – the elegant clutter of a girl in Paris who loves the idea of the American garage sale, so she started having monthly sales (brocante is the french word flea market.)  But the best part are her musings on design, food and fashion. And she very bravely has translated her French site into english so les Americains and other English speaking ex-pats can browse her wares. If you’re headed to Paris, check the site for dates! I can’t imagine a more unique travel experience. Charmante!

The Wedding Movie of the Week! Classic Hollywood Musical – Funny Face

I’ve got the 1956 theater trailer below! How exciting! Audrey Hepburn outfitted by Givenchy in a movie set in Paris already is genius. Throw in Fred Astaire, amazing dance numbers* and the George Gershwin songs, and you have classic Hollywood musical magic.

Bon voyage! As they say in the trailer, you’re going to have a marvelous time!

*did you know Audrey Hepburn was a trained dancer before she started acting?
