• Colorful + Quirky Philadelphia Wedding: Shira & Ryan

    If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a hundred times, I LOVE when a bride reader tells me how much they used Oh Lovely Day in their wedding planning. And this bride definitely took our mantra, “make your wedding YOU” to heart when she planned this colorful and quirky beauty. It’s so full of personality.

    Advice for couples planning now? Know your vision and stick to it. That doesn’t mean be unwavering in your opinions, but make sure that every choice you make ultimately makes you & your groom happy. We knew we had to stick to a few ground rules: budget, geography and guest count – but after that we made sure each piece of the puzzle was exactly what we wanted.

    Ryan and I are big foodies, and proud Philadelphians. So when we found out (a few years before we were engaged…) that it was possible to have a wedding in one of Philly’s biggest food landmarks, Reading Terminal Market, we knew that’s just what we’d do – despite the extra effort it would take working with a non-traditional wedding venue. After that, we picked bright fun colors and worked with amazing friends & vendors who understood our vision to help bring the day we dreamed of to life.

    There was definitely something amazing about having the Mummers play and lead the entire wedding from the ceremony, across the busiest street in Center City, to our reception – now that’s a way to stop traffic!

    •  Ice Cube = it's Friday! Cause, FRIDAY. duh. #byefelicia #optimist #quincyrhys  THREE MONTHS OLD (and two days)! Wow. I cannot believe it. You might be the smiley-est baby I've ever met, which is saying a lot considering how miz you were your first few weeks of life. You are doing so much better with your reflux (thank you Prevacid!) and can finally lay flat, don't scream in your infant seat, and mostly tolerate the bath. You still freak out a little when I try to take you places, but staying home for three months will do that to ya. We're slowly venturing out, taking walks, and getting a bit more social. You still love to nurse and be worn but you also love being put in your bouncer and on your playmat/gym. You are babbling like crazy, laughing, smiling at your brothers a lot (even Calvin, even when he's a little rough with his love). They both love you so much and think you are so cute. Tonight Charlie said "Quincy, how cute are you!? No, seriously, HOW CUTE ARE YOU!?" You weigh a whopping 15 pounds (your brothers were only 13.5 at 4 months!) You have so many rolls I have to make sure you aren't hiding food or growing a garden in them. And you have sweaty feet! It's so weird. Your night sleep is not bad but not amazing - you sleep from 7:30 or 8 pm till 1:30 or 2 am, eat, and then go back to sleep but lately are waking up every 1.5-2 hrs after that even though you don't seem to be hungry. You still sleep in the rock-n-play so I'm hoping to get you in your bassinet soon since your reflux is improving. Calvin was sleeping 10-12 straight hours already. But you take great naps - one 3 hour nap in the morning and usually a 2 hr nap in the afternoon. You're pretty dependable that way, and for the record both of your brothers struggled with naps for a while. I'd rather have more night sleep but I'll take what I can get. You've discovered your hands and are trying to suck your thumb/fist. When you cry, you really cry. Like full on wailing or no crying at all. And you have white duck fluff sticking up all over your head. I love how you stretch and pucker your lips when I take you out of the swaddle and how when you first wake up and focus your eyes on me you greet me with the biggest smile ever. Every single time.  #quincysmonthbymonth
       The windows are open and a breeze is blowing in the smell of the night blooming jasmine outside. Calvin is napping. Quincy is nursing. Chili is cooking. I got decent sleep last night and had a productive morning. We have family plans with friends this evening. The wine is chilling. I got these flowers from Trader Joes for $7 and the ranunculus are the prettiest yellow. They reminded me of someone which reminded me to stop and appreciate every single thing I just listed and more. Every giggle, every smile, every breath, every cuddle. Every quiet moment. Every loud moment. Every single moment. Everything.  Neighborhood strollin' with 2 of ma 3 homies #calvinandquincy
