Hello & Announcements

Long time no chat!  How are y'all doing??

Well, I'm back and getting settled.  Wedding was wonderful, Hawaii was beautiful, and now we're back to reality!

Guest Posting Series

I just wanted to thank the wonderful ladies who guest posted for me while I was MIA in wedding and honeymooning memories.  Here's a quick recap: 

  1. June 12 : Andrea from Love Is... talks about how she met her husband and the crazy adventure that followed.  Visit her blog here.
  2. June 15 : Casey from The Wiegands talks about how God knew just how her and her husband's love story would go even when no one else did.  Visit her blog here.
  3. June 19 : Elizabeth from The Buergler E's brings to light one of the most vital aspects of any relationship: fighting fairly.  Visit her blog here.
  4. June 22 : Melissa from Forever And A Day introduces her and her husband as well as the realities of being a newlywed.  Visit her blog here.

Blog Design

I am opening my shop back again and I am now accepting blog designs on a first come, first serve basis only.  I just wanted to let you all know that I did raise my rate from $10 to $15 simply because as much as I enjoy it, it really is a time consuming process.  It's important to me that I am able to give my best as well as a good amount of time to each client, so I am going to limit the amount of blog designs I can do at a time.  As of right now, I will be able to accept new clients the week of July 9th.  

A reminder, the $15 is an all-inclusive package: header, navigation bar, two buttons, sidebar introduction graphic, etc.  I will be working on a la carte option if that seems to be something that people would want, so email me if you are interested in just one or two things or have any questions.


I am now going to be using Passionfruit Ads for sponsors and ads.  I still have three options (200x200, 200x100, and 100x100).  Two out of three of those options are free with promo code ADSWAP100.  If you are interested, please check out my advertise page.  

Wedding Wednesdays

We are still a go!  I have recaps and pictures a plenty!  I want to keep these memories fresh for years to come, so I am planning on keeping up with Wedding Wednesdays until I have nothing left to say, share, or recap!  Afterwards, I will go back to / start up Wellness Wednesdays (in which right now wellness posts may or may not have been scheduled on Wednesdays).

Thanks for all your wonderful words and support!
Xo, AWS.


  1. Thanks for having me as a guest poster again and I'm so glad you had a good wedding and honeymoon!

  2. How fun!! What part of Hawaii were you in?? I live in Honolulu :)
    Can't wait to see pictures!

  3. HellO! I was in the Waikiki area -- the Hilton Hawaiian Village? We stayed in that area for the most part since we didn't have a rental car. We walked to Waikiki Beach. Of course, Pearl Harbor was the main reason we stayed on Oahu, but we also did the Big Island for a few days. I'll be posting pictures you probably recognize in the next few weeks! What a small world =)


I love receiving feedback, so thank you! =)
Your support means the world to me.

Have a charming day ;)
