Featured in The Washington Post!

I was absolutely stunned when I get an email from The Washington Post saying that they want to not only interview me for their blog, but also post several pictures that they had spotted on my website.  Wow!  What a delight it was to chat with Cara Kelly (writer) about timing advice for brides just getting engaged.  Very very honored to be interviewed.  Thank you, Washington Post!  Here is the article:

And here are pictures they chose for their gallery (#’s: 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 19, 20, 21, 34, 35, 36, 37).

Pictures taken by Jeremy Russell Photography and Blend Photography.  An added bonus was that they featured many items from The Darling Bee.  Fabulous!
