    It was over 13 years ago that my husband Joshua and I got married at Sundial Resort. We still celebrate our anniversary there every September. I got to thinking about this because now is wedding planning season and recently I have seen a lot of articles on trends, tips and new things going on in the wedding world.

Just like with Thanksgiving, the plan is to have the big meal at Sundial Resort but do a few more casual activities at the house. However, before the out-of-towners arrive, my husband and I are hosting a Friendsmas. Friendsmas, a.k.a.

    Author:  sundialmgr   |  Date:  October 23rd, 2013

    Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. From my Princess Leia days to the ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ themed party in college to now helping my own children with their costumes, I have always found the holiday to be all about fun, creativity and socializing.
