Something Blue.

As most brides do, I have been gathering my something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. I have a family treasure that has been passed down to every bride to wear in her wedding for my something borrowed. I have a handkerchief given to me when I was baptized intended to be my something old on my wedding day. My something new will be my gown and finally my something blue! I have chosen to wear blue shoes!

I thought that blue shoes were quite common, but when you feel the pressure to find the perfect blue shoe, they all seem to go into hiding. I really wanted to get a pair of wedge patent leather blue shoes. I was able to find a couple of them, but then they had 4 inch heels or just not fabulous enough. I've been looking for months for the perfect shoe. I started my search in Hawaii and I've been to every place that I could think of to find a great pair of shoes.

Finally I was able to discover a very pretty pair of navu blye shoes that go great with my dress, but I'm not going to tell you about them; you'll just have to wait to see!

OK I know, I've tease. Hopefully this will hold you over; here are some of the losers!

One of my favorites, but it was determined to be a little too casual. 

The right idea, just too boring. 

 I was getting desperate. 

A beautiful pair of Stuwart Weisman's. I actually bought these, but the heel was a stiletto and 4 inches, in downtown Annapolis that is a recipe for a twisted ankle! Not good for a wedding!

I think you all might be surprised to see my final blue shoe come wedding day.

Hop, Skip and a Jump back to the Cold.

In a bitter sweet goodbye earlier this month I got on a plane and headed back to my old stomping grounds. Now I have to say that I was not sorry at all that I missed the terrible weather from this pass winter. I never really cared much for snow (unless I got out of school!).

That said I was really excited to see my people from home. It also meant that it was getting closer and closer to the wedding! So a little reluctantly and a role reversal I left JJ in Honolulu and boarded a plane back to the continental US. I went from Honolulu to Seattle to Chicago and finally Baltimore.

When I landed in Baltimore I couldn't find enough layers to put on! I've turned into a softy. (well truth be told, I never liked the cold nor was I ever "used" to it. I mean can anyone really be "used" to the cold?)

On the runway, look how green the water appears!

I can now say that I've been cut off by a jet. See the burr of the F-16s. They were doing a formation take off.

Honolulu from the plane.
Hawaii Kai.

Landing in Baltimore, there was still snow on the ground.
