It's Official- I need H-E-L-P!!!

As S announced in early fall, I am engaged.

I am SO excited to be engaged to DB- yes, most people would say "Obviously!" but no. I was not that little girl who fantasized of her perfect wedding day. I have never really thought about MY wedding at all. In fact, the idea of them kind of give me anxiety (it appears that my enthusiasm for weddings left me to join my sister T ;P )

In a shocking twist however, it turns out that DB IS into weddings, our wedding to be specific. (No, he is not that little boy who fantasized about his wedding day... but it is important to him to have a ceremony & to celebrate with friends (read: wedding.) So, to make a long story short, DB does SO much for me that I have (maturely) agreed to have a small, simple wedding.

I am happy to report that planning has been relatively painless thus far. DB and I agree on most things (ie location, food etc) and have actually laughed & had fun searching for ideas. (I don't know how people planned these things before the internet!?!?!?) And don't forget, I have two very helpful sisters.

I have hit my first roadblock! Seriously, I have been searching for some time now (as have S & T) and so far, no luck !


-ok for an outdoor, summer wedding
-Dark or light grey is fine
-Preferably long but won't be picky at this point
-Something funky, different,
 ie. I recognize that grey can be a dull color so I need the dress to have a little personality

The only two dresses I have seen thus far that are remotely close to what I would like (plus one that is unidentifiable as long or short ) are the following:

This is my favorite by far of the three but I think it might be short

If you happen to come across a cute, grey dress you think would be fit for an outdoorsy wedding, please send the link or store name our way!

This post is going to be short & sweet but too important not to acknowledge.

Anyone who has read more than two posts on Life Of Three knows that our family has been living through difficult times for the past few years due to Mama H's health.  

We are all aware that there are no guarantees in life but we are beyond pleased to celebrate an extraordinary milestone today- Mama H underwent a procedure that required her to be (essentially) in isolation for 100 days. So while the rest of the world warmed their hearts yesterday over Valentine's day, Life of Three sisters & our whole H family (relatives & friends alike) hearts burst with joy today as we celebrate and honor one of the bravest, strongest, most incredible wife, mother, daughter, sister, woman we know. 

Ma- you make me prouder, make me love you & inspire me more and more everyday!

HAPPY 100!!! 

Much love

Long Overdo

Well... it's been a while. Between work, new houses, updating old houses, upcoming baby arrivals and life in general... we haven't have much time to post. As is often the case in life, when one part of your life is thriving, other parts are suffering. And, for now, I am focusing on family and friends and work. So, the blog has been neglected. I know for many of Mama H's friends, they like to read and see how she is doing and what she has been upto. Well, I am pleased to say that she is doing well and that we were able to visit with her and Dad a few weeks ago. We laughed a lot, drank wine (not mama H or T but the rest of us) and leaving was... difficult... as always. I always have to wipe away a tear as we drive off, even though I know it is not goodbye, but see you later. Here are a few pictures of some pictures of our trip.

As you can see, we were not only able to make a trip to the Jersey Shore, but we also made it into the big city with Mama H. Though she couldn't go to lunch or into stores, she and I walked for blocks and blocks and blocks. She loves New York, but since arriving in August, has only been able to look at the skyline from the apartment. She finally got to go in and it was wonderful. It was an absolutely lovely day; one I will remember forever.

We hope that my parents will be home for a few days to visit soon, which would make me so happy. Until then, T's bump is growing day by day and we are all anxiously awaiting Baby's arrival. Have a great rest of the week.

With Love,
