E and C!

I'm updating.

My aunts hosted a beautiful bridal shower back up in the Chicagoland for me this past weekend. It was so cute. My very creative aunt had even suspended an umbrella over my seat, for me to sit under and a sign that said "shower the bride with gifts and kisses"!


I'm also giving you a glimpse today into our wedding logo! Now announcing E and C! Just a little taste of the wedding to come!We can't wait. My fiance` kindly reminded me how many days till the big day just the other night, as we were dancing at my childhood friend's wedding. I whispered to him "next time this will be our first dance!"

As my relative said on her rsvp " we will see you in a minute!"

51 wows.

51 days to our wedding.

I'm SOOO excited! Everyday when I get home from work, I open the mailbox. I see little rsvp postcards. And I read the notes. I put a special place our invitation rsvp with a place for a note! People have written cute, sentimental things, and then there have been those that just write about UT's opposing football team! Ha.

Besides that I'm still getting some last minute things together --- like the bridesmaids gifts. I need some inspiration. I'm trying to find the right jewelry! And then choose the wine.

But we are working on it! The Boy has gotten the flu and been out the past few days! Tomorrow we head to Chicago. Back to good health hopefully too!

I can't wait to marry my best friend!!!

It's not just one moment, it's the day to day steadiness. It's looking out at the future together, and knowing that no matter what is to come - you know you have someone there to help you approach it - with the same hope (the attitude), the same faith (values), and love (the unselfish and unconditional).

Last night C worked on the ceremony. The thoughtfulness he's approached it with what really gets me. They words said on that day, will not just be words, but rather some of our hearts deepest truths and core of what makes us so strong. I can't wait to make this commitment to him.
