Signing Off

Well this is my last official post before becoming Mrs. LW. It's been quite a journey for us.

I have written my own vows, though not as beautiful as perhaps others have written, but none the less they mean something to me. I think I may need to tweak them a bit, but we'll see. I'm always so picky when it comes to stuff like that!

I'll be gone for a good bit of time, so I'm not sure how much blogging or blog reading I'll be able to do. My Dad flies in tonight from Las Vegas and will be spending a few days with me before heading to my brother's while I'm away on a honeymoon. After the honeymoon he'll come back and spend some time with me.

I'll try my best to pop over and say hello to everyone, but if I don't, please have a very nice few weeks!

Looking forward to catching up when I return!

Surprise Package

Saturday afternoon I arrived home to a sweet little surprise on my doorstep. Of course I was giddy with excitement because what girl doesn't want to open presents? As I started to tear away the tape I realized that the gift was from a very special person in my life. I peeled away the tissue paper and made my way to the treasure inside. And as I got closer to the precious gift, I teared up. I thought about how special this gift really is and what it truly means to me. It's not about the cost of the gift. It's about the special person I will think of every time I see it.

A fellow blogger, Lavoice, who is very much like a Grandmother to me, sent LW and I the most beautiful glass picture frame as a wedding present. I'm not sure if she knows this or not, but the picture frame is in the colors of our living room.

As I stood in my kitchen with the picture frame craddled in my hands, I thought about how wonderful the power of the Internet truly is. It brings people together, who might not have ever happened upon each other.

I'm so grateful to have Lavoice in my life. I will treasure her always. I only hope that one day our paths will meet in person.

I promise to shares photos of the frame as soon as I can. If you know me, you know that I'm a little slow with posting pictures!

Thank you Lavoice for your contiuned love and support. You are truly an angel to me. I will treasure you always!

Counting Down

So sorry to have not been around much lately. I keep trying to get here to post and to read blogs, but I'm just 'that' busy.

Since my last post:

I had a birthday.

I had my final dress fitting.

I met one last time with my florist.

I have been working on my lollipop creation for escort cards.

I have painted picture frames to be placed on the mantel in the reception area.

I finalized all of the important music for the reception.

I approved the program layout.

I finalized the cake.

I had a hair trial which ended up in me finding an alternate solution for my hair.

I had the air conditioner in my house break which resulted in it getting above 89 degrees in my house for two days.

And.....realized my crinoline under my dress isn't going to work because apparently I have too much back fat.

There you have it.

As you can tell I've been super busy so I apologize in advance if I haven't gotten to your blog. I do intend to try to. Sometimes I read and don't post, but know I'm thinking of you!
