Some run off on honeymoon after a wedding, this couple scheduled a fun ‘day after’ photo session.
Jessica and Francois celebrated their marriage with gorgeous destination vintage-style beach wedding in Mauritius (which you can see here).

What are your dreams for 2014 and how are you going to work towards them this year?
This is a question I started asking myself during my holiday but by the time the holiday was over, instead of an answer, I had that ‘I don’t want to leave’ feeling.
Holding on to a holiday state of mind
During my ‘staycation’ I did lots of fun touristy things in Cape Town, spent time with family, baked, walked, took photos and drew. I didn’t worry about blogging, my business plans or my email inbox and as a result, I felt calmer and had more time to connect with the people I love.
