I am so flattered Jes asked me to join the company of such a fantastic pool of guest bloggers on A Mountain Bride. For those of you who are new to A Mountain Bride, Jes graduated with her Ph.D., got married in the beautiful mountains of Flagstaff, and is moving across the country from AZ to NY (all within 3 weeks!) Please check out not only Jes's blog (and my post) but also the fantastic guest posts from real brides who have shared their stories and dished up plenty of hindsight advice these past couple of weeks!
