My name is Jessica and I just got engaged to the love of my life.

I was never the girl to dream of white a white dress, a husband and picket fence when I was a little girl. I was never against marriage but I just had other priorities that included college, a career following my passion, making a difference in the world and having as much fun as possible.

I consider myself marriage illiterate. Sure, I have seen it on TV, my parents were married and I have a few friends who have tied the knot. However, the notion that I might get married was never really on my radar so I mainly observed from a distance in a kind of esoteric way and certainly never paid attention to the details of what it took to make this thing called a wedding.

I started this blog as a way to document my adventure of discovery of how to plan my wedding so my friends and family can follow along if they need some late-night reading material. I doubt there are many that will read this regularly but it is a way for me to journal about my crazy thoughts, feelings, discoveries about the wonders of a wedding and document this process in some organized, regular fashion.

I live in Seattle, WA with my FIANCE (as of May 7th, 2011) AND two weiner dog children. I am an active, avid adventurer that loves running, hiking, snowboarding, biking (especially downhill mountain biking), travelling and photography. Mountain biking is actual what first brought me and my fiancé together.

I work full-time for a local City as a water quality specialist (rivers and streams and stuff, not the stuff that comes out of your faucet). I am also a semi-professional photographer, part-time life coach and blogger ( I blog about hiking adventures with my dogs at http://www.YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner.com)

If you have found yourself here, thank you for taking time to read and comment on my ramblings. I can use all the advice I can get 🙂

Here is my little family

Fiancé, best friend, doggy daddy, bike mechanic, adventurer and love of my life.

Chester, “bubby”, “the good one”, snuggle buddy, spirit lifter, hiking buddy, steady rock and small Dachshund.

Gretel, “little girl”, clown, ball of energy, snuggle buddy #2, hiking buddy #2, food inhaler, light of my life and even smaller Dachshund.
