Cranraspberry Blog is now Olga’s Laundry Blog!

I’m very excited to say that the move is now official: after lots and lots of tweaking I decided that the new site is as ready as it will ever be, so Cranraspberry Blog has now moved to Olga’s Laundry Blog!

It’s a little sad to leave the old platform, and setting everything up on the new site has been quite a lot of work, but hopefully it will all be worth it. Having a “real” self hosted blog offers so much more in the way of editing everything to my liking. In the meantime, please send in any suggestions you may have on how to make this blog better and easier to read!

In any case I’m really looking forward to this – I will be posting primarily about laundry and eco home products and ideas, as well as about some other things that interest me and I would like to share. When I started my old blog I also wrote quite a bit about beauty, but have moved away from that over the years, so I don’t expect to devote too much tome to that (unless I come across something AMAZING of course).

I also now have a facebook and twitter page that you can follow to keep up with all the latest updates. And you can always reach out via the contact form with any questions, or just leave a comment to any of my posts!

Always yours,

Our Wedding Video

I fell quite a bit behind on blogging last year due to spending pretty much every waking moment planning our wedding. The number of details you have to take into consideration is mind blowing – I don’t think I could have ever imagined that it would take so much effort! But in the end we had an absolutely perfect day on Lake Champlain in VT, and my only regret is that it didn’t last longer. Everyone always says that the day flies by too quickly for you to notice, but I never thought that it would actually apply in our case.

Well now that we are slowly easing back into normal life, I thought I would share the lovely fusion video that our wonderful photographers, Hannah Weddings, put together for us. It was such a happy day, as you can probably tell from all the laughing and tears of joy.

On a side note, since today is Veteran’s Day, I should mention that I got my gown and veil for free through a non-profit organization called Brides Across America that donates dresses to military brides in the US. I had actually gone in looking for a lace mermaid, but Heidi, the founder of BAA, picked this dress out for me and at first I didn’t even want to try it on, since it was pretty much the exact opposite of a lace mermaid! In the end it ended up being perfect, and the whole process was even captured on film for the tv show Brides of Honor.
