A New Marriage, A New Blog!

Exciting news to share ladies and gents!

As I mentioned in a previous post, after my wedding I was debating about what to do with this blog, given that I was no longer a bride-to-be. Ultimately, I decided that I want to keep this blog to share with my audience my wedding day recaps, DIY projects, and general wedding fabulousness. However, I also want to share my perspective on life as a newlywed wife, so I decided to create a new blog. 

I'm excited and thrilled to share that I have my new blog up and running, with my first post officially published! It's called The Lovely Nester, and you can follow the link to start reading about all of my new adventures as Mrs. Cape Cod Bride. 

I also have a sneak peak of my next post on my new blog to share with you. It is about a controversial book on marriage by Lori Gottleib, the author of Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr Good Enough. In the book, Gottleib argues that wise women stop chasing the unattainable "bad boy" or the perfect Mr. Big ala SATC, and settle down with the "good guy."  This got me thinking about my own choice in a partner, and made me ponder love, passion, and compatibility.  

What do you think ladies? Do you believe there is a perfect soul mate out there waiting for you? Or did you choose the dependable guy who is good enough, but don't feel as though the passion is there? Can there be a happy medium, in that you marry your best friend who you also lust for, or is that happy ending only found in trite Hollywood romance flicks?


  1. Congrats on the new blog. Love the name.

    I don't know if I believe in soul mates. And especially not the fact that there is only one person out there for everyone.

    Mr B is my best friend and I in no way settled for anything. I think settling would make you unhappy, maybe not at the start, but certainly down the road.

  2. "Settling" I believe will catch up with couples!


  3. Just took a peak at the new blog -- good luck with it and with school!
