Next time, I’ll be Mrs. Cerda!



I can’t believe in three days, I’m getting married. Well, I can believe it, I just can’t believe how quickly this week has come.

So many thoughts and emotions are running through my mind and heart right now – excitement, nerves, stress, happiness and of course, love!

To fully enjoy this weekend and this wedding week, I’ll be signing off later today, but first, I’ll let you know what to expect from the blog/Inspiralized from now until my return from the honeymoon (!!!)

I don’t want to leave you all in the dark while I’m gone getting married and honeymooning, so while I’m gone, you can expect posts on Sunday and Tuesday of the next two weeks, for a total of three new recipes.

Saturday, June 20th is our wedding day, so if you’d like to follow along on that day, follow the Instagram hashtag #aliandlu (especially to see my dress!!)

I will officially be on my honeymoon June 22 – July 1, but since I love taking pictures, you can probably find me on Instagram, posting shots of my tropical drinks, on the beach, totally chilling out. SO EXCITED!


Also, on Friday, June 26th it will be my two year blogiversary (Inspiralized is just two years old, can you believe it?!) and when I return in July, I will be doing something fun to celebrate, so stay tuned!

If you have any Inspiralizer related customer service inquiries, please contact Meaghan, our Brand & Community Manager, who will be here to field any questions and help you out. She’ll be taking over in my absence!

Thank you so much for all of your kind notes, well wishes, congratulations and love! You all are my extended friends and family, and I’m so blessed to have all of your happy vibes and sweetness coming my way during this exciting, momentous time in my life!

Wish us luck and remember to follow along on Instagram and check the #aliandlu hashtag!

That’s it, next time you’ll hear from me, I’ll be a Cerda!

hi Ali - The big day is almost absolutely exciting. Came pretty quickly, didn't it? Thanks for sharing so enthusiastically with us - you've got many true admirers who have been interested in every step of the journey! Relax and enjoy, but remember: from what I've observed, great marriages don't just happen, they actually take work, patience, compromise, unconditional love (a wonderful partner helps, and I'm pretty sure you've found that in Lu!) - Ruth (45 happy/memorable/loving years of marriage and counting!)

Hi Ali, I've been following you for about a year now and absolutely love your blog. I've never posted because life's so busy and you know the rest. But I just had to say yours is the only blog I click on right away to see what you have to say. You are so real and pour your heart out to your readers. Your mom must be so proud to have raised such an amazing daughter!! I wish you so much happiness with Lu and know you are so deserving of everything wonderful to come your way. I'll be thinking of you June 20th and hope you see this before the date so you know how very special you are to all your readers. God Bless you on this special day and always. All the way from Canada...Carmella
