I'm off to Canada!! Oh Canada! My home and native land! I am so excited.
I am planning our wedding while I am there. I have SIX days in which to get all of my planning meeting, visiting, laughing, and playing in. SIX days before I have to leave it all behind again for another few months.
The very best part of planning our wedding so far has been the creation of our invitations. They have been SO much fun! We took pictures of our faces and sent them to the very talented Laini Taylor and she made the invitation for us. (And Mark was Laini's very very first Laini's Lad - giggle!) I laugh with glee EVERY single time I look at this picture. I can't stop smiling when I think about it. Thank you Laini - from the bottom of both of our hearts!!
Wedding planning is hard. It's hard because I couldn't care LESS what cutlery is on the table. (Luckily I don't have to decide that!) It's hard because I don't want to waste money on things that DON'T MATTER. It's hard because I have to finalize the guest list and no matter what we do someone will feel left out. (And funny that I imagine that MY wedding will matter that much to someone... silly silly me.) But thank goodness that I have these 'problems.' How blessed am I that I get to marry the man I love in front of people I love and that there are so many people I love that I am worried about not having enough places to put them! I have so much gratitude when I shift my perspective!
So I am off to the Great White North. I'll leave you with some good things!
1. This post - LOOK I am a LAINI's LADY!!!! I am SO honoured that she used my face as one of her beautiful ladies! She is so talented and inspiring. What a great day!
2. This blog that I have recently found. Its title was what drew me in in the first place!
3. This blog that makes me smile wide when I go there.
4. This beautiful piece of art that I am lusting after.
