World Kindness Day: Kindness Makes Dream Wedding

November 11, 2015
Blog - Jennifer

We often hear that what the world needs is LOVE. And definitely, more KINDNESS.

A month after receiving a diagnosis of a rare form of breast cancer, 29-year-old Jennifer Gargano was married in a wedding made possible by the generosity of strangers.

Gargano’s husband Brian proposed on Valentine’s Day, and the couple originally planned to wed in August 2013. But after a diagnosis of angiosarcoma of the breast one month later, they decided not to wait.

Brian enlisted Elysia Skye, a wedding officiant they found on the website Yelp, to perform the ceremony. Little did they know that Skye was herself a breast cancer survivor, who took to Facebook asking everyone she knew to help donate to the big day.

It Had to be You

November 6, 2015
Blog- Barbara

Call me old fashion…yes, I LOVE Barbara Streisand! Well…Chad thinks I should have been born in the 50’s since everything about the 50’s I JUST LOVE! (Although…Barbara Streisand wasn’t exactly popular in the 50’s!).

On my flight back from visiting my mom, I listened to Barbara Streisand’s newest album “Partners” on my iTunes. There have been many renditions of these types of song styles where well-known artists sing with other well-known artists such as Frank Sinatra’s and Tony Bennett’s Duet.

I’m sure you’ve heard Tony Bennett’s “It Had to be You” but sang by Streisand and Michael Buble?

It Had to Be You

It had to be you, it had to be you
I wandered around and finally found
Somebody who could make me be true
Could make me be blue or even be glad
Just to be sad, thinking of you

Some others I’ve seen, might never mean
Might never be cross or try to be boss
But they wouldn’t do for nobody else
Gave me a thrill with all your faults I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you, it had to be you

There are a lot of November wedding plans going on. At YoursTrulyWeddingAlbums.com, our favorite photos are Fall Weddings when the wind is crisp and cool, and the background is a perfect photo opportunity!

Friendship and Encouragement

October 16, 2015
Blog- Friendship and Encouragement

On our (Chad) way out from a museum we toured last Sunday, we passed by its Gift Shop. While waiting for Chad to pick-out a book he wanted to buy, I browsed through the shop’s greeting cards department.

I’m sure you’ve seen gondola stands of cards for all sorts of occasions. As I spun the gondola, a card caught my attention at the “Friendship” and “Encouragement” section with a quote:

“When you cry, I’ll dry your tears. When you fall, I’ll pick you up. When you rise up, I’ll rise with you. And, if you move on, I’ll always be here for you when you need me again.”

I had chills when I read it. Now…that’s friendship. I bought the card and that night, I gave it to Chad before we went bed. I kissed him good night and whispered “I will always be here for you.”
