Wedded Bliss

I have a really good excuse for not posting for over a month: I got married!

On August 2nd, I married the love of my life: Justin.

Justin and I met on in 2005. After being together for a year and a half, I knew he was "the one" and proposed to him on Christmas day, 2007. (yes, I bought him an engagement ring too!)

We got married in Huntington, VT near Burlington. Ninty-five of our closest friends and family were there to witness our love for each other.

The whole day was great, but it took a lot of planning and preparation. That's why I've been MIA for so long.

Also, during the time from July 2 to the 19th, I wrapped up the last experiments for my PhD dissertation. So, now all I have to do is run the stats on the data, interpret the results and write my entire dissertation. I plan to accomplish this by January 2009.

In the meantime, after our wedding, Justin and I went to Canada for a second reception and just got home this past Monday.

Then... a day later (Wednesday), I started my dietetic internship through UMassAmherst and am now on my road to my RD status by next June.

So... I've got a lot going on, but I will be back to blogging right away. Just a few last things to tie up with the wedding (mostly bills and thank you cards) and I can get into the thick of my dissertation (the writing) and complete my RD internship.

I hope everyone has had a great summer as well and is looking to a fantastic fall.

Thanks for reading my blog!


I'm just saying said...

Congratulations! You're so gorgeous in your dress!

Congrats! You look beautiful in your dress. I just got married in May and we're still working on thank you notes. Almost done. Just finished paying off the wedding and the honeymoon.

Now the hard part is combining two full houses in a down market. Hopefully you two have been living in one house. We've spent every night together for the last couple years but didn't move in together, just alternated houses. It's a pain.

Congrats again!

Whoa! You look so beautiful. What a lucky guy he is.

You two look great together. Congratulations to you both.

Hi Cassandra!

I just purchased your new book written with Lou and Alwyn - wow! It is like you have all written what I've been saying for a long time!

I'm starting the program tomorrow. I can't wait.

I am a spiritual leadership coach and a certified wellness coach (ACSM) and have been struggling with clients in the fitness area with many of the issues around aerobic exercise that you address in the book and also in the nutrition area.

I'd love for you to check out my blog at

Thanks again for the book - fab!!!
