The NookWelcome to my little nook, a corner in Bride and Breakfast where we can talk (as in really talk!) about the other faces of weddings and things. From tips, ideas and the nitty gritty of the wedding world, it’s a place where I share my everyday musings, ramblings of what I am passionate about, the technicalities of blogging, bridal and vendor culture, and an occasional peek at my life in and out of B&B. – Janna
