I have a very big family with lots of cousins around my age and older, so it seems like there is always someone having a baby. I have witnessed my sister, brother, and several cousins have children (each of few times), but I was never included in that roster since I was the “single” girl.

Being that this is a bridal blog, it’s impossible not to talk about the hot topic of the week: Kim Kardashian filing for divorce after only 72 days of marriage! When I heard I was somewhat surprised, I guess, but not entirely since after watching the wedding special (yes, I tuned in, sue me) it seemed as though they didn't agree about much as far as their future was concerned.

I’m back from Aruba and it was the perfect getaway, so much so that we extended our stay for a few more days defeating the purpose of a “mini-moon” (a short honeymoon vacation).
