Maps can show me where I’m going, but the best discoveries are unexpected gems right around the corner. When the light is hitting a scene just right and it is truly breathtaking. No map will ever compare to that. I am in Acadia National Park right now, and I…

I’ve had a ring on my left hand for almost a year now (crazy!!), but seeing it still takes me right back to the moment when I was looking at my handsome fiancé on one knee through teary eyes and I caught sight of my ring for the very first time. I had given Dave very little…

    Those classic L.L. Bean duck boots (lovingly referred to [and proudly stamped on the back] as ‘bean boots’) have been a style staple for almost a hundred years with New Englanders – and for good reason – they’re practical, resilient, rugged, and … oh-so-charming. The look is currently getting a warm embrace from hipsters but have no fear; this timeless style is here to stay. And I won’t be the first to say how gosh darn cute they can be in engagement sessions – so pull out the wool socks – it’s bean boot season! And if styled…

    Photo by Heriberto Elosegui I was practically dancing, I was so excited when I told my sister that I was engaged. But just two days later, I was hit hard by the reality that I couldn't tell my dad my happy news. I sobbed like I'd only just been informed of someone's passing. And it hurt just as much. I was thrilled about being able to inject "when" instead of "if" into sentences related to our future, excited to upgrade my relationship status on Facebook, but I was grieving, too. Life's messy. Sometimes weddings are messy. I'm sure it's always…

    Lee was working part-time at a cigar shop over the holidays and Naser was a regular customer. The pair struck up a friendship and remembered one another when their paths crossed again five years later.

    Sarah and Jay were married at Cypress Grove Estate House in Orlando, Fla. on December 22. “We loved the beautiful outdoor setting with majestic oaks overlooking a lake, and the fact that our guests could easily walk from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and then to the reception,” Sarah said. “I wanted it to be full of Southern elegance, and it was exciting to see how the details of the decorations all created that feeling too.” The bride wore a long-sleeved satin wedding gown, accessorized with a fingertip-length veil and jeweled sash, while the groom wore a light…

It may break a few things accidentally in its passion for life, but you can never be mad at love for long . . . ” Can you guess where this quote is from?

    A $4000 wedding in New York City IS possible people!!  And for 50 people no less! Brooke did her own flowers…how gorgeous is her bouquet? From the photographer: Brooke and Josh originally met in 2009, but after a few dates, a relationship failed to materialize and they lost contact. Two years later, the couple met again and it was love-at-second-sight. They’ve been inseparable ever since, even after Josh took off for grad school in DC, then to Iowa for political work. After Brooke finished her PhD at Columbia in spring 2014, she was offered a position at UCSD, and the couple…

It's been a really good summer holiday actually and the return to nursery sort of sneaked up on me. I have really enjoyed spending time with the girls who are not nearly as trying as they were during the easter holiday, which nearly killed me. It helps that they've stopped trying to kill each other. For a while (about six months) we were woken every day by their fighting before they had even got out of bed and it just…

Lora was an Ozark big-eared bat, which made perfect sense as a Halloween costume, and was something people would be able to recognize on at least some level. Me, on the other hand? I got stuck on the idea of being a dwarf wedgemussel. Yes, it’s a mollusk. Don’t ask me why I thought that was a good idea.

    Fowl Cay Resort In The Bahamas                         Fowl Cay ResortA view from above I’ve been to resorts where every room gets its own cruiser bikes, where every room gets its own butler, where every room gets its own golf cart. But Fowl Cay Resort in the Exuma islands of the Bahamas puts them all to shame.There, each of the six villas comes with its own 17- or 18-foot powerboat, a sweet perk that general manager Yves Verhoustraete says is “almost unheard-of.” (And he…

    Fall is here and this wedding cake offers a different take on the traditional fall wedding cake! Giant Rose Wedding Cake The cake is covered in a monochromatic champagne/blush pink and topped with a giant open rose/peony sugar flower at the top with cascading leaves down the side. Different textures decorate the cakes different tiers including quilted patterns and shimmery luster pearl.

    Listen up, my lovely clients. You’ve planned you wedding and now it is here! One week before your wedding, baby, ONE WEEK! be sure to do these xx things on the last week of your wedding Make lists. Get it all out of your head and dump it onto paper, phone reminders, whatever. And share it with your wedding planner. You will forget things if they aren’t written out. Chill out. Go get a massage. Go to the movies. Work out. Do something for yourself that has nothing to do with the wedding. Large storage bin. Put it your living room and start putting all your personal wedding stuff…

    I have the smartest and creative friends. Just take a look at my friend, Monica Richard (owner/event planner of Mon Amie Events in Indianapolis, Indiana), planned when they celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary with her husband. Seriously wish I had thought of this when I celebrated our 20th anniversary a few years ago. It was a “wedding rewind” (her coined-term). Not a vow renewal, but instead revisiting her wedding and sharing it with their children and parents. Brilliant. take a moment and watch their video: Monica & Paul’s 15th Anniversary – 4.17.14 from…

    I adore it when the Father of the Bride (who may be the host of the wedding) gives a welcome at the reception. After the wedding couple is announced, the Father will take center stage and “welcome” all the guests to the evening. few things to keep in mind: This is not a toast. No need for holding a drink. Very important to remember to talk about both families, don’t leave anyone out. Recognize your special guests. If you have a lot of out-of-town guests it’s fun to call out …. “Welcome guests from California, Boston, Texas …” Keep it short and…

    Is there such a thing? Being too organized? Wedding planning is a process, it takes time. No reason to rush and no reason to get ahead of yourself. Sometimes we find that clients will change their minds too often or second guess their choices. Or simply, even though it started out to be a really fun project, after 15 months of planning … you’re just, well, over it. So pace yourself. Don’t get mad at yourself if you have missed deadlines. Sometimes it’s better to put forth concentrated effort and is often more productive. featured photo credit: pfe iphone plan on! The…

    What could be cozier than a bed and breakfast wedding? Melissa and Kyle had once stayed at Virginia’s The Inn at Vaucluse Spring and knew it would be the perfect home for their wedding day. Brooke Courtney Photography and florist Wild Green Yonder were the perfect matches to bring the couple’s vision to reality! From the bride, Melissa: Our ceremony and reception were held at The Inn at Vaucluse Spring, a beautiful 100-acre bed-and-breakfast in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, about 90 minutes from DC. We’d stayed there once years before and fell in love with it. Our…

    You know those weddings where you can just sense that everything came together perfectly – so perfectly that the whole day seems like a dream? Well, that’s the feeling we get when we pore over this wedding from Amy Arrington (though we suspect her dreamy film images play a big part). Signature Weddings and The Perfect Poppy made Kimberly and David’s wedding a truly special one, with romantic touches and relaxed elegance for us all to admire. From the bride, Kimberly: We wanted our wedding to be a reflection of us and a true celebration of love, family, and friends. We…

    Blues, greens, and ivory – such a classic color palette, yet it’s always a winner in our books. Parker and Chandler’s Florida wedding was relaxed elegance at its best, with the added bonus of a tropical setting twist (I mean really, those forest portraits? Come on). Thanks to the wonderful team behind their day, including Flora + Fauna, Bash, Please, and Rubys Red Floral & Garden! From the bride, Chandler: We wanted to go with something that would complement our personalities. We are both very laid back and down to earth, so having any crazy colors or loud decorations…

    I find it difficult to put into words just how much I love this wedding. There’s something to be said for two members of the arts and performers marrying — as photographer Sarah Collins of Love Katie + Sarah says, “It’s the people who are used to being watched, that think they’ll have it all under control who often crumble the most in a ceremony.” Francesca and Matt’s day was full of emotion, creative touches, and an abundance of love that’s nearly infectious. From the bride, Francesca: Matt and I wanted an intimate, and nurturing event that…

    1 Oct 2014 | 3:44 am
    With the publication of the top 100 favorite pieces in the public vote I'll admit I was disappointed my Tiny Cranes were not included in the top 25 3D entries. There's still a week to go before round one voting ends on October 4th and the finalists are announced on the 5th but I'm a realist and realize to catch up at this point would be difficult at best.Was I surprised? Not really. Not because my work hasn't been well received, it has been, tremendously so and beyond my wildest expectations. It was because I'd read a news article about attendance the day before that featured the traffic…
  • First four days review of ArtPrize 2014

    28 Sep 2014 | 6:07 am
    The first two days of ArtPrize I came to answer questions about my work. The past two days? I've been folding cranes onsite giving live demonstrations then giving them away. Artist's are allowed to sell their work as long as the ArtPrize logo is not printed on it. I contacted the ArtPrize support desk to ask if I'd be breaking any rules by giving away the cranes I'd just made. I was given a green light that that would be ok so now I sit and fold cranes all day long. But here's the really cool part. The best part. . .Gifts I've received by people attending ArtPrize!Several visitors have walked…
  • ArtPrize: Installation of Tiny Cranes completed

    23 Sep 2014 | 9:12 pm
    They're in! Earlier this afternoon Fred and I loaded up both cars and headed to the Grand Central Market and Deli to install my Tiny Cranes entry!In Fred's car were two things he'd made for my installation:1. The structure from which I hung the cranes. It's a Japanese torii, the gateway you'd find at the entrance to or inside of a Shinto Shrine. It symbolizes that you are entering a sacred space. I love it! I'd planned to simply buy shelf brackets, get a 12" x 4' board and drive nails into the interior facing edge to hang the cranes. Instead I have an elegant and meaningful display structure.
  • My ArtPrize entry is done!

    21 Sep 2014 | 4:13 pm
    I have, in the past, had a problem with people assuming things I made by hand were purchased ready-made. In an effort to not let confusion reign with my ArtPrize entry I made a build journal that photo-documents the process of creating the structures the four sets of miniature 1000 origami cranes are hanging from. I'm having them printed as an 8x10 photo build journal and hope to leave it at the Grand Central Market (where my cranes will be on display throughout ArtPrize) in case anyone is interested in how the pieces were constructed.Here's an online version for those of you who aren't going…

The natural surroundings of the property were so pretty and drew out the vibrancy of their blue, yellow and white color scheme. Jenny made a beautiful bride and carried a bouquet of daisies, roses, baby’s breath and adorned with a photo charm. As for the dapper groom, we don’t think the smile ever left Adam’s…

There is nothing in the world like a joyful bride. She’s completely enchanting. And then there’s Marc. He will always be two important things to us: the one who made it possible for me to see clearly…

Well, technically, just Jeff this time. If you’ve been following the recent blog updates, I missed this trip, sadly. But I was getting updates and sneak peeks from him during breaks, it almost felt like I was there. That, and I’ve been having so much fun editing these sets!

Jeff and I talk about this in detail in our workshops, that finding inspiration is not about wasting time poring through countless other photographers’ work for something to copy, but about devouring other art forms that move you, actually experiencing life, and discovering yourself.

And his wife, she stayed for a couple of days, and passed away. I’m sorry, I know that’s a strange way to tell you that I know we belong, that I know, that I am, I am the luckiest. ♬ Gabriel didn’t cry. He wept. It was sweet and funny and endearing because he doesn’t really strike you as the crying…

  • Traveling Internationally? Get to the Airport Early

    Zuriana
    21 Jul 2014 | 5:29 pm
    Planning on traveling internationally? Ensure you arrive at your airline’s ticket counter at least two hours prior to your flight’s scheduled departure time. This ensures  you have enough time to have your passport verified, check any luggage, and receive your boarding pass. If you arrive at the ticket counter with 60 minutes or less time remaining until your scheduled departure time, most likely you will be denied boarding and miss your flight. Some international cities suggest a three-hour airport arrival. View Southwest Airlines airport information page for some great tips.

    We recently shared a video featuring one couple’s amazing Big Lebowski-themed wedding. After watching it a dozen times, we were left in awe. In a quest to learn more about their inspiration and planning, we tracked down the newlyweds (Jesse + Chelsea).  We found them in North Hollywood on Radford, near the In-and-Out Burger and asked them the following questions: The Big Lebowski obviously holds a special place in your hearts. Were you both fans of the film from the beginning or was it an acquired taste? Chelsea: Not particularly. I hadn’t seen The Big Lebowski until I met Jesse.

And having photographed Janice’s Sister Sandra’s wedding 2 years earlier, it felt like hanging with old friends, albeit while carrying around a very large camera.The day went off without a hitch, including deftly avoiding a lot of goose poo at the park! The ceremony and reception took place at the Mississauga Convention Centre, which is a really classy hall. I was a tad concerned for Rob’s safety during the garter retrieval but escaped relatively unscathed. Yet another excellent event with lovely people – good times! Here…

Newsflash, Analisa & Rommel fit the bill as well – actually, after 13 years in the biz I’d say they are in the top 2 percentile of ridiculously lovely people – who also happen to love each other in an extraordinary way (see pix!).

All you have to do is look at these teaser pix to recognize the exuberant love that radiates from and between Teresa & Kevin.  The ceremony and reception took place at the Queenston Heights Restaurant in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Beautiful day, great venue, and lovely grounds – and the releasing of a bunch of butterflies. Not surprisingly the friends and family were also wonderfully fun-loving, so the party also rocked. And I had my favourite Videographer,…

    “It’s going to be a hot one” I thought as we reached the beautiful grounds for Pamela and Raphael’s wedding in Los Altos. As I saw the backyard where this day was to take place the next thought was “WOW, is this going to be an amazing place for a wedding!” Pamela grew up in this house and she couldn’t have picked a better place for her and Raphael’s celebration. With temps reaching over 90 degrees, our goal for the day was quite honestly not to cook :) The best photographs usually happen in the shade and Pamela and Raphael also enjoyed that we…

Maryam and Jean-Marc had one of the most intimate weddings we’ve ever attended, and it was intimate even with 140+ guests! The day was a beautiful blending of their family cultures: Persian, Spanish, French, and American. This made for some beautiful traditions, contageous dancing, and so much love you could wring it out like a honeycomb. What we found so special at this Kohl Mansion wedding was how inclusive it felt to be there. The friends and family were warm and you…

One of the first things we usually hear in the morning of is that the bride and groom didn’t sleep very well – they’re so anxious.

Lori and Alex were really psyched about their portraits and picked out some amazing locations for their wedding photos. We started off at the Cypress…

    It all started with music. Early on, sites like Napster made it possible to download songs without purchasing an album. The problem was that these services – at the time – did not take copyright into consideration. People shared songs they liked and built their music collection. And, as time went on, this started to change. Subscription services came about; so did the opportunity to pay to download one song at a time. Film lovers have started to see that this service should not be limited to music. In some cases, they recognize this because services like Apple’s iTunes offer…

    Amusement is a feeling of fondness for yourself and others. Every human can be amused as well as entertain others. Amusement or entertainment is like a two-way traffic. If you are entertained, you must also entertain others in order to make it worthy of committing to memory. There is a lot of entertainment everywhere, from others, from you and from nature. But why are we most of the times not amused by these things or fail to realize the amusement contained in them. We are unwilling or refuse to accept it by spreading it to others. We always want to be entertained, but we do not want to be a…

    We’re all pretty stylin’ babes, are we not? Scrolling through our Pinterest and Instagram feeds, we can pick out the fabulous fashion trends we know are the best. Sometimes it’s fun just to look and be reassured that our personal styles are indeed pretty bangin’. But what happens when there are no pictures of pretty brides donning the looks that we love (and need)? Is it just me, or is it a little disheartening to see a lack of women reflecting dresses, makeup, and haircuts we hope to wear on our big day. One thing there needs to be more of is The Short Haircut.

    The stunning backdrop of this wedding is what initially captured our attention, but the next intriguing factor is of course the bride and groom. A laid-back duo from New Hampshire, Elizabeth and Jake utilized the incredible scenery of the mountains and created some truly stunning images - which were captured by photographer Douglas Levy.

    When Olga and Enrico, from Toronto, got engaged, they wanted a meaningful and unique destination wedding. After much research they decided to have an intimate traditional Mayan ceremony along the lakeshore of the incredible Lake Atitlan in Guatemala- a lake sacred to the Mayan culture.

    We have been spotting more and more bridesmaid corsages as an alternative to bridesmaid bouquets lately and I just can’t seem to get enough! Perhaps the reason that I am so in love with today’s new (but old) trend is because I have actually never been given one. I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers for my debs (the Irish equivalent of the prom) so it really is novel for me. Apart from being achingly beautiful, there is a practical side to these perfect wrist adornments. Not only will your bridesmaids have a pair of free hands for the day to attend to your dress but swapping…
  • Anna Maier Fall 2015 Bridal Style

    Amy
    17 Oct 2014 | 1:30 am
    The Anna Maier Fall 2015 collection stood out for us as it keeps mainly to a classic line, veering away from the fussiness found in much of the rest of the Fall 2015 bridal collections this week. Glamourous sculptural satin ballgowns compete for attention with more demure but beautifully detailed lace creations. There is one empire line gown which I particularly love (fourth from end)- the leafy shapes of the embroidered bust and waistline as well as draping tucks at the bottom evoke a whimsical, almost nymph-like feel. Refined elegance is the name of the game here, yet there’s a…

Taking inspiration from the 1950’s bubble gum feel of the place, this celebration was styled with lollipops, cupcakes, and candy in mind — how cool is that? I love how the mostly pink, pretty elements contrasted with the gritty industrial nature of the venue, and I actually chose the main image (above) because the wooden frames behind the c0uple reminded me of a chocolate bar (after seeing this shoot, can you blame me if candy is topmost in my…

From there, wandering the shores where Darren was raised, walking the streets of Valletta from Katia’s parents home to the church, and partying the night away at Villa Corinthia rounded out…

    Lindsay and Nathan got married in September at the picturesque Teton Pines Country Club, a gorgeous lodge venue in Jackson Hole! Guests were treated to chocolates handcrafted by the groom’s family’s candy store upon arrival and as favors. Lindsay’s mother made her veil, and a family friend made the sash. The newlyweds hosted a welcome BBQ at their house so guests could get to know one another, and the morning after the wedding, they held a farewell brunch, too. Their outdoor ceremony had the perfect backdrop of autumn foliage bursting with color, the cutest little flower…

Their synagogue flooded and it was a tense week as everyone worked to dry things off enough to host a wedding and reception. But in the end it was a beautiful day! We did the first look and couple’s portraits at Chautauqua Park, which had reopened just a day or so before. Jodi and Kristina handmade the place cards, centerpieces (‘love’ in different languages), and candles. In typical Modern Jewish Wedding fashion, the night was filled with lots of dancing,…

She likes to pretend she's shopping by walking around the house filling up a paper bag with household items and she loves to help her mama cook.  She's warm and very patient and a true girly…

    Last week was a crazy one so I'm sorry for my absence from the blog.  Matilda came down with a fever and it was a high one - 39.9 degrees Celsius or about 104 Fahrenheit. When I picked her up after first discovering she was hot, I saw that she was shaking and breathing funny.  I try very hard to not panic when she is sick (yes this is a first time mum talking right now, please note I say TRY, hehe) but this time I knew something wasn't right.  The good news was that the shaking and breathing were a response to the high fever so after some Tylenol and a check over from the doc…

    13 Oct 2014 | 12:32 am
    If you didn’t already know, my wife, Britt, and I brought Pop-Up Weddings to Australia. It’s such a fun and original idea and we look forward to the next event so much! This week we saw seven boyfriends marry seven girlfriends. Seven couples arrive as two kids in love, and they left husband and wife. The concept is simple: for one day we get an amazing photographer, a celebrant (like me!) some stylish people and a venue and we make it look amazeballs. Then every hour on the hour a bride and groom get married with anywhere from zero to fifteen friends witnessing the event.

    A lot of time people face the same marriage pitfalls. Every couple in a marriage, whether they have been married a long time or not, must be very active in ensuring their marriage remains fresh and interactive.

    Once the honeymoon phase of your marriage is over, you start to notice little things about your spouse that you may not have noticed. These things can begin to drive you a little crazy, especially if you did not live together before the wedding. These types of situations are normal and very rarely need outside intervention as long as you and your spouse discuss your issues openly and are willing to work on the problems. There are situations that may need outside intervention; knowing when marriage counseling is needed is the first step in getting your marriage back on track. Here are some…

Whether you have married at 22 or 55, you will find yourself having to share the wrath of foreclosure history, student loans, commitment to child support and credit card debt or bringing all these issues to your new bride or groom. There is no romance in matters finance. It is the elephant in the room that must be addressed or it will strain your marriage just when things should be getting better. On the other hand, as…
  • Summarize My Name Change Options

    Valera
    6 Jul 2014 | 10:27 pm
    Most of us, when we think about the "getting married/name change" process think about a bride taking on her partner's last name and leaving her own maiden name behind. This is because, for a long time, that is the way that it worked almost everywhere. If Sophia Jones was marrying Jessie Smith, her new name was going to be Sophia Smith. No muss, no fuss. Tradition isn't for everyone, though. For some people, keeping their independent names works best. For others, it's hyphenation. Some grooms will take their bride's last name. Sometimes a couple will even choose an…

    Years ago a married couple needed to have a joint account, share and use credit cards as a couple, and also have a joint mortgage with their names. As time has gone by, things have become a little complicated as man and his wife are now working and their income sources are not usually the same. Also, people are now getting married much older and financially established before they're married and merging finances once they have married becomes a complicated issue. In case you are wondering whether to merge finances or not, there is no one way to it. There are different solutions and some…

    I’ve just wrapped up the launch for Book More Weddings Academy and I was going through things trying to analyze what worked and what didn’t and it occurred to me that you could probably benefit from seeing this too. A lot of wedding professionals don’t spend much time talking about how they are working ON their business vs IN their business (unless they’re in The Inner Circle where we talk about this a lot). Both of these elements are important and they are different – one is CEO planner mode, one is worker bee doing the work mode. You can’t do both at the…

    Photo by: Jennifer Dery via The Sweetest Occasion   Pastels have been all the rage since the gorgeous Marie Antoinette movie and Lauren Conrad’s recent bridal shower Instagram pics, and it’s easy to see why. Pastels have this beautiful femininity about them, something new and fresh, but also classic. And the pastel palette isn’t constricted to spring time or super girly themes. Just look at the photos below for some ideas. Pastel gets a modern touch with a geometric cake. Notice how the soft colors are incorporated into the desserts and tableware. Pink and blue cake…

  • Modern Black and White Bridal Shower Inspiration

      You know what I love about a black and white palette? It can stand on its own. It’s bold, modern, and sophisticated. Plus, it plays well with pretty much any other color of the rainbow. So if you’re stuck trying to decide on a theme for the bridal shower you’re planning, consider using the b&w color combo to plan a theme around, and turn it up a notch by adding in another color like pink or gold. For a modern touch, play with geometric patterns, clean lines, and simple design. And for something truly unique, combine modern elements with feminine details like floral art and…

    We recently sponsored the slightly-awkwardly-named-but-totally-worthwhile Type-A Parent Conference in Atlanta, and so naturally the topic of email came up (surprise!), especially in relation to testing email forms with different email accounts. It can be a real pain to create yet another email address for your site, and so we all have only a few addresses to go around. Right? Wrong! If you have a gmail account – and who doesn’t? – you effectively have an infinite number of email addresses. And I was surprised how few of the experienced bloggers and content marketers I met…

    If you or your subscribers have been frustrated trying to get to a FeedBlitz feed (or click through to a link in a FeedBlitz feed) in the last 24 hours or so, the reason is because some third party DNS servers have been returning the wrong results for feeds.feedblitz.com. The net effect is that although FeedBlitz is up and your feeds are being served, some subscribers are being sent to the wrong servers, and getting errors as a result.

    Not having Flash development experience in-house, we were puzzled recently when we received a support request from a Flash guy wondering why a file we’d never heard of (crossdomain.xml) was giving a 404 file not found error when he requested it. Because it wasn’t there, obviously. Thankfully, the developer in question was kind enough to throw us a link about why that file was needed for Flash, and a few minutes later we had everything we needed to know. Thanks, Chad! So if you’re a Flash developer, crossdomain.xml is now available on our servers to permit you to use…
  • New: RSS Image Enclosures Now Visible

    Phil Hollows
    13 Aug 2014 | 6:58 am
    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…

    Polka Dot Black Men’s Tie by DQT It is true that fashion is a fast moving, ever evolving world. That said, just as new trends are constantly emerging there are others, such as denim, stripes and top quality tailoring, that never really go away.

So, without further ado, here are 4 of my current favorite warm signature cocktail ideas: Photo credits are in post below 1. Coffee I'm a total coffee nut.
