If you have been reading our website, you will know that Vlad is a major photography buff. A lover of the art of photography, we even transformed our guest room into an office and photo studio for the man behind Purse Blog. Designers send us bags to review and shoot, which has been an exciting adventure for us. When it came time to pick a wedding photographer, Vlad, of course, was very hands on.
When we set the date of February 20th, 2009 for our wedding it seemed as if that day was so far away. Slowly but surely the day creeped up on us and as it got closer to the wedding day, the amount of work for the wedding grew exponentially as did my excitement. And finally, when the day arrived, I was overtaken with excitement, nerves, and love.
I know it is such a cheesy, clichÃ© thing to say… but for the sake of trying to express my emotions, I’ll still say it:
I married the woman of my dreams. My excitement over being married to my love goes beyond anything I could attempt to express on our Purse Blog.
Meaghan and I had our wedding last Friday at the Spanish Monastery in North Miami.
You haven’t seen much of me on Purse Blog in the last few weeks. The coming together of this wedding has been completely and totally all-encompassing and time consuming. But I could not be more excited or thrilled to have our wedding day fast approaching!!!! Our wedding is Friday evening and we have a weekend of events planned for our guests.
There are certain brands that we can all notice from afar. These brands have something unique yet very noticeable about them. For the most part, I think most of us can pick out a Bottega Veneta bag from a mile away. Today I came across the Bottega Veneta Metallic Hobo and I have to say, I welcome it warmly. I kind of thought it was a BV handbag, but since it doesn’t have the woven leather have all grown accustom to, I had to look twice.
With only a few minutes left on January 1st 2009, we wanted to take the time to wish you all a Happy New Year!!! 2008 was a great year for Purse Blog and Purse Forum. We expanded to add Purse Blog Savvy, added full-time employee Shannon to the team, and our websites continued to receive more visitors and press in 2008.
Merry Christmas to you all from all of us at Purse Blog! We spent the entire day away from the computer enjoying time with family and friends. We will be taking off tomorrow as well enjoying a sand Christmas rather than a white one.
Happy Holidays to you all – hope you all had a great Holiday season! We will be back Monday morning.
Just an announcement since I know many of you are looking for the list of winners for our 12 Days of Handbag Giveaways! We will not be announcing winners publicly until all the proper paperwork is filed. Winners have been chosen and all have replied. But we can not announce the winners until the paperwork is sent back to us. So yes, we have winners, but no, we have not announced publicly yet!
Today and Monday we will be bringing you various sales around the web. If you are like me, you will be hiding from the chaos that is today. And I am guessing if you are reading this now, then you either made it back from Black Friday alive and well or are staying in to online shop or are laying on the couch hoping the Thanksgiving feast calories will melt off your body (I am partaking in number 2 and 3 of that sequence).
From all of us at Purse Blog we would like to wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving!
Turkey is in the oven, the kitchen is finishing up a late brunch, and we are enjoying the amazing weather and family time! We will be bringing you sale info tomorrow, as it is Black Friday. Enjoy your holiday with loved ones!
