UWIB BlogHop - A Cape Cod Wedding

Back on June 30th, 2007, I became a happy, blushing bride... okay, at my age I was well past the "blushing" stage... let's just say I was happy and "flushed". ;)  It was a gorgeous day, and my now husband and I had a lovely outdoor ceremony and reception, with friends and family here on Cape Cod. It was a magical day. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Cape Cod is a romantic place to hold a wedding, and whether you can tie the knot here, or are looking for a little Cape Cod flavor for your nuptials, I thought I would share a few local items that will make your special day even more special. :)

Sailboat Wedding Invitation by Dulce Press on Etsy

I love these nautical themed invitations. :) Jen, from Dulce Press, has a small shop/studio on Cape Cod, where she makes her beautiful handcrafted, custom paper products. She has an Etsy shop (click ^ pic) with a modest selection, or visit her website for more variety and styles to choose from... 

Hold Everything by hheaslip on Etsy

These adorable clay place/note/card/photo holders are handmade by Holly Heaslip, a native Cape Codder and award winning artist, who's inspiration comes from the sea shore. Holly has had an extensive art education and over 30 years experience in working with clay. Visit her Etsy shop (click ^ pic) to see more... she is also happy to take custom orders. :) 

Cape Cod Scallop Shell Necklace by MidWestMermaid on Etsy

What a precious necklace - fit for bride or bridesmaid! Gigi Golato, who proclaims to be a "beach loving displaced Cape Cod girl", handcrafts these pendants from fine silver using a mold she made from a tiny scallop shell she found on a Cape Cod beach. Click the pic to see her listing, and browse her shop for many more beautiful pieces of her original, handmade jewelry. :)

"The Wedding Cod" by Cape Card on Etsy

Last, but not least, is this whimsical customizable print by Cape Cod graphic artist - Andrew Newman. My husband and I discovered his art hanging on the walls of a local breakfast spot, and knew we would some day have one of his pieces.  For our first anniversary, my husband presented me with a customized, "The Wedding Cod".  It is just the most awesome commemoration of our vows... I LOVE it! <3 Check out Andrew's Etsy shop, and his website:  for prints, posters, notecods, postcods and stickers for ANY occasion!

After perusing your blog, I've decided a visit to Cape Cod is in order. What a great collection of artists you found from your area and I can't wait to visit your neck of the woods to see more in person. Perhaps in the Fall.

Great blog post.

Hahaha, Andrew, that's because we were living in sin for a few years first... that's why we're still here, and not at the big Rapture party in the sky. ;)

Thanks for this article men. Truly helpful. I do my workout program very first thing in the morning
and i in no way consume a pre-workout food as a result of that.

Cannot move my coaching to later on result in of my work.
Any concept how I can get all from the cards, protein and
fats required just before the workout without waking up 1 hour earlier and eating a pre-workout meal?

Jeff, thanks for this article.
While I am not a military member, I've always appreciated the basic method that our military focuses on when instruction new recruits: concentrate on compound exercises, high nutrition meals, and focusing on endurance more than that "max bench" numbers for higher performance.
