Sweet Nothing

When planning your honeymoon, you'll want to make sure lots of romance and fun are included. Still, don't forget to include loads of relaxation and quite honestly, a little bit of NOTHING. Consciously make time for leisure. Never plan back-to-back activities for any vacation, much less your honeymoon. You'll likely be exhausted from the wedding and will really benefit from some down-time. One of the best ways to ensure you treat yourself to peace and quiet is to choose a location that features a world-class spa!
Here are a few outstanding options to consider ... all of which are on my personal "bucket list:"

Rome Cavalieri Grand Spa - Rome, Italy
Notable Therapy: La Prairie Caviar Firming Facial

The Overwater Spa at Kamalame Cay - Bahamas
Notable Therapy: Rosemary Citron Sea Salt Scrub

Fern Tree: The Spa at Half Moon - Montego Bay, Jamaica
Notable Therapy: 80-minute Marine Algae Wrap

Spa Villagio - Napa Valley, California
Notable Therapy: Aromasoul Mediterranean Ritual

Saxon Spa and Studio - Johannesburg, South Africa
Notable Therapy: Saxon Spa Signature Treatment of Sound Therapy

Treme di Saturnia Spa - Tuscany, Italy
Notable Therapy: Mud Therapy Mask

"Farm Sweet Farm" 1st Birthday Party

My husband and I celebrated our baby twins, Jonah & Gia's, 1st birthday with a "Farm Sweet Farm" party last weekend.  The party was held at our home (aka The Anderson Farm) and our closest family and friends excitedly attended.  Honestly it's still difficult for us to believe a full year has gone by since they entered our lives, but one thing was clear from the beginning --- we had a lot to celebrate and we intended to do just that!

Everyone had loads of fun; they would've partied until the cows came home if we let them.  And since the guests of honor LOVE animals, the theme proved to be absolutely perfect for them and their guests.  To most, I'm known for planning amazing weddings and bridal celebrations by means of THE BRIDAL PARTY, so it was really a lot of fun to step outside of my comfort zone and show off my versatility and range.  I can't deny, this was FUN!  I'm still quite "giddy" about it all.

scam (skām): A fraudulent business scheme

Yesterday, I received my first wedding scam attempt (guess my latest marketing and advertising efforts are starting to work). I received an email from an "Irish" bride-to-be whose fiance was offered a job in the U.S. and needed help planning a small wedding in New Jersey. I vaguely remembered hearing of certain swindle attempts on wedding vendors (especially photographers and videographers), so my radar peaked immediately, however, I didn't jump to any conclusions right away. I responded to the email, drew up a preliminary proposal, quoted cost of service and submitted an invoice for payment. Nonetheless, when it became apparent that the bride-to-be and her French fiance only intended on mailing a cashier's check, I knew right away what I was dealing with ... a scam! I happen to know that international cashier's checks are not fully validated for 90 days. So even though the check may clear at first, if found to be phony, the money is later deducted.

I must say, it…
