The Little Things

Isn’t that one of the cutest little smiles you’ve ever seen? I just love the look on my nephew’s face. I was at my brother’s house playing board games with some friends and my poor nephew Jude was feeling a bit under the weather. He was having difficulty understanding why we adults wanted to spend all day in a room with no toys for him to play with. So when he made it clear to me that he was wanting some help getting a deck of cards opened, I figured eh, why not? 🙂 After all, its the little things that get us through the rough days.

Photographers, Kazoos, and All The Little Pieces

Well friends I have some very exciting news! This last week Ric and I were able to find a photographer for our wedding! I’ll be honest, finding a photographer has probably been one of the most stressful parts of planning that I’ve had to deal with. It was worth the wait though, because the lovely and talented Lauren Chase has agreed to help us capture all those special moments of our wedding day. Ric and I are both SO unbelievably excited to have her be a part of our day. She has a great eye and is really willing to work with us. She mentioned over and over that she wants the photos to be a reflection of our day, our unique tastes, and our personalities. In the few hours we spent with her walking around the ranch and the ceremony sites, she already had at least a dozen ideas that we both loved! I am so excited to have her working with us! Thank you so much Lauren!

And in other exciting developments, we have our kazoos! I know this seems like kind of a random thing to be excited about, but let me explain. We aren’t going to have glass drinking glasses at our wedding, so rather that have people use their cutlery with plastic drinkware to try and let Ric and I know we should kiss, we decided to do something different. So we have ordered Kazoos! If you are planning on coming to the wedding, a few things to remember.. hum! Don’t blow! They aren’t a flute, they are (honestly now) a rather annoying children’s toy. 🙂 So have fun with them and hum away!

It is really exciting to see all the little pieces coming together now. My bridesmaids all have their dresses! We are finding all of the little parts and pieces to help our decorating ideas come together. We more or less have an order of ceremony, songs are pretty much picked out. It is certainly exciting times in our part of the world! I’ll keep you posted on updates! 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to be a part of our lives! 🙂

The Wedding Planning Continues!

The Wedding Planning Continues!

Well friends it’s full speed ahead now as far as wedding plans and just life in general are concerned. Sorry I have been so silent these past few weeks but with leaving my job and moving home, things have been a little hertic.
I can hardly believe that the wedding is just 7 1/2 weeks away!! That’s so crazy and to be honest it does make me wonder if I’ll get everything done on time. Today though the invitations are being sent out! I love the way they turned out and thank you .ao much to my sister and all the hard work she did to design them. They look amazing! I’ll be sure to post more pictures of them soon! 🙂
Hopefully now that I’m home you will hear from me a little more often. I’m just hoping that I don’t stress out too much with these deadline looming over me. How do you deal with deadlines and pressure? Are they motivational to you or intimidating?
