Our Wedding Day: Getting Ready

We were married on October 24, 2009 in the beautiful Lundy Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in beautiful Macon, Georgia. The forecast predicted an icky, rainy day; but as you can see from this photo, it was anything but:

The girls and I met at the church hours before to have makeup done and just enjoy hanging out with one another once again. Most of my bridesmaids had met each other at one point or another, as they have all been really important in my life - not to mention that most of us were all sorority sisters.




There were three other beautiful bridesmaids, but somehow I didn't manage to get pictures of them. You'll meet them a little later :)

Ciao Bella,

So. Thanks to my good friend over at Becoming His Mrs., I've decided to recap our wedding. I admit that I fell off of the blogging train near the end, but I hope to make up for it. The up side is that I get to do it with PROFESSIONAL PICTURES (BTW, these are a few of my fave)! YAY!

So, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. For those faithful 26....THANK YOU!

Weekly Savings Tip: January 04, 2010

COBRA Premium Subsidy Program Extended

On December 19, 2009, President Obama signed into law the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2010, which extends the 65 percent COBRA premium subsidy to February 28, 2010.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provided a government subsidy of 65 percent of the cost of COBRA coverage for employees (and their eligible family members) who lost their health insurance coverage due to involuntary termination of employment in 2009. In addition to the subsidy being extended to 15 months, employees who lose their jobs in January or February of 2010 will still be eligible.

For more information on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, visit the U.S. Department of Labor Web site.
