Its been raining and is super chilly in Kentucky and I think our last few warm days are far gone. My Monday and Tuesday have been fairly uneventful and I am already on the countdown for the weekend! As promised I have some wedding news to share. I have received several emails asking about the status of wedding plans and despite the lack of posting all of the major elements were taken care within the first 4-6 weeks of saying "Yes!"
A few weeks ago the FIN and I traveled to Nashville to take our engagement pictures. We were so lucky to have a wonderful photographer who made us feel comfortable (photo slideshow is another post for another day... ). The pictures turned out great and we were both more than pleased. Before even taking the engagement pictures I knew how I wanted the Save the Date cards to look. I am a total sap for all things related to stationary and I knew that I had a few special thoughts that I wanted to incorporate into our Save the Date cards.
When I first began blogging I came across a great blog that encompassed personal design and a touch of whimsy. I immediately began perusing her portfolio looking for stationary ideas or any paper product that I could monogram (I LOVE LOVE LOVE monograms). Granted, I haven't always dreamed of wedding details but once I saw the online store I knew that I wanted to work with Mary Ellen over at Mostly MEllen. When it came time to put my my thoughts on paper I provided the photo that I wanted and a few places that I wanted to include and she did the rest. I was nervous to see the final product (as that is my nature) but once I saw them I couldn't have been happier. I couldn't have imagined them turning out any better, they were better than expected!!! When I opened up the box with the cards I felt like it was Christmas, and like I was 6 years old all over again.
After checking and re-checking all of the envelope addresses against the excel list that was complied by Mommy TX and myself I felt confident enough to mail them, (I am writing about this only because the cards have been mailed and most people have already received their card). The FIN and I spent last Monday night stamping (Me), and licking (The FIN was volunteered to seal them but he didn't seem to mind, which is good because envelope glue makes me gag...) all of the invite cards.
