In Just a Snap of a Finger…

December 28, 2015
New Year 2016

Dear Yours Truly Readers,

I can’t believe how fast time flew by…in just a snap of a finger, 2016 is here to welcome us.

End of year is such a significant time for me and Chad. It’s our time of reflection, resolution, and hope for the future.

Chad and I reflect on our accomplishments with such a deep sense of gratefulness to the many people who surround us with their compassion, love, thoughtfulness and affection.

It is also our time to reflect on our lives overall while embracing all the good and the bad. It is a wonderful way to see the progress that we’ve made or failed to make on this journey we call life.

Holiday Wishes for You and Yours Truly

December 22, 2015
Blog - Merry Christmas

Dear Yours Truly Readers,

No matter if you’re religious or not, the holiday season seems to be the time of the year when the whole world seems kinder, happier, more loving and joyful. Sending holiday wishes to yours truly takes an open heart and genuine words of affection.

Every time I watch a Christmas movie, I tear up. I appreciate what a wonderful life I have because I get to live my life every day knowing that my loved ones are in it.

My holiday wish for you is simple: May this time of year brings to mind those things in life that are most important. May it remind you to focus on all of the good fortunes that you are blessed to have!

Yours Truly,

 Zoe

Chivalry Still Exists

December 15, 2015
Blog- Chivalry

While walking towards the glass exit doors of a movie theater on a Friday night, there was about 6 inches of snow on the ground. It was the first snow fall in Chicago for the winter.

There were two sets of heavy glass exit doors, inside and outside. When we were nearing the farthest exit doors, it was apparent that the snow had fallen heavily and most of the cars were covered with it.

Chad asked me to stay inside the theatre lobby so he can get the car and pick me up at the front of the exit doors.

Many couples saw what Chad did, and the rest of the husbands, boyfriends, etc. followed! So (we) looked at each other and I said, “Isn’t it sweet that chivalry still exists?”All the women turned to me and said, “I agree. They are wonderful to us.”

The First Time I Saw You…

December 11, 2015
Blog- For The First Time

Hhhmmm…this may be a loaded statement.

Share your story with us when you first saw the love of your life…what were your first impressions, feelings, reactions?  Here’s mine.

The first time I saw Chad, I thought he was:

  • A snob (well…I was proven wrong…he is such a grounded person)
  • A high maintenance guy who is more high maintenance than most females I know (this is still soooo true!)
  • Impatient (true in the beginning; but, am able to calm him down now
  • Super cute (still so true even after many years!)
  • Funny
  • Could use a little help in coordinating outfits!

So, these were my first impression from our first meeting.  Most of my impressions changed when I got to talk to him the second and third time around.  He wasn’t THAT bad after all.

Weekend Thoughts – Learn Something New!

December 9, 2015
Blog- Weekend Snowboarding

How many times did you tell yourself, “What should I do this weekend?” or “I want to do something different this weekend?”

We often fall into the same old routine or trap of spending our weekends the same way. So, this weekend, I thought of listing things that you can easily do!

  • Volunteer with your local community organization.
  • Watch a classic film like Singing in the Rain, The Godfather or old James Bond with Sean Connery.
  • Say hello to a neighbor you don’t usually talk to.
  • Plan a day trip to somewhere outside your city or visit a suburb you haven’t been.

100 OFF Blog Footer

  • Learn five phrases in a new language–what about German, Italian or Thai?
  • Listen to a genre of music you haven’t tried before–Country, New Age?
  • Try a new cuisine–what about French, Cuban or Korean?
  • Learn a new skill or sport–what about cooking a new dish, water skiing or snow boarding?

So, what new things will you try today?”

Chicago’s Winter Wonderlights

December 6, 2015
Winter Wonderland Blog Main

One of the best things about the holidays is the magnificent decorations and lights displayed on people’s houses, malls, city buildings, etc.

In downtown Chicago, we have a trolley ride along the city landmarks called the Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier, State Street, Macy’s Holiday Windows and Daley Center Plaza. These places are adorned with sky-high Christmas trees and endless lights that go miles and miles long.

Holiday Special: No Down-Payment Needed!

December 3, 2015
Winter wonderland wedding at Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort from Chelsea Nicole Photography

Here comes the holidays! We are making the season extra special by not requiring you to pay any down-payment when you order a wedding album!

A $50 deposit is required in the regular ordering process before you start uploading your wedding photos into our system. You will then be billed for the remaining amount when your layout is completed and your album’s final look is approved.

That process will change this month (Until December 31st, 2015) since you no longer need to pay a deposit fee. We will only ask for your credit card when you approve of the soft copy of the finish product! How cool is that?

No Deposit Required

You can check out our album designs on our website – www.yourstrulyweddingalbums.com!
