Happy New Year

Wow it is 2012 and it highlights how badly I have neglected my blog! Last submission July 13th – awful! Well the tail end of 2011 was very busy for me. I was lucky enough to present on a Developer tour for my company taking in cities such as Singapore (September), New YorkLA (October) and Munich (November).

December was then a time to reflect, unwind, and make up for the year of neglect by spending time with the family over the festive period. I usually spend the whole festive season in The Highlands of Scotland in my hometown – it is my personal realm of paradise. This year was no exception.

During my travels, I was lucky enough to take some time out in LA. I travelled to Solvang, a Danish town to the west of LA (just north of Santa Barbara), Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. Wow I loved Las Vegas, it is like nowhere else on earth. It was here that I had a wonderful, unexpected surprise – whilst turning 29, my boyfriend of 7 years proposed.

So I have to admit that since that glorious day I have began to be consumed by weddings! It is at times like these that my girly girl traits really do struggle for survival – it is really difficult to talk weddings or attempt to show off my engagement ring in a male dominated team. But that hasn’t stopped me 🙂 Being techie, once I had wireless, I started to trawl the app store for wedding related apps. I am currently using Wedding PlanDroid android app. It is free and seems to be doing the trick – although I cannot modify the currency but I really like the transparent startup screen.

I have also registered with Brides. During sign-up it asks for your wedding date and location (unfortunately only US based). It wasn’t apparent at the time but they use this data to send personalised emails. The emails usually consist of a countdown to the date and reminder of tasks that you should be completing within that current time frame e.g. set a date, pick a venue, book the church. A really nice touch.

So future posts will still be techie related but they may have a wedding related twist. One thing is for sure – I won’t wait another 6 months before posting again.

I hope you all have a fantastic 2012!
