a love letter


i can hardly believe that in 4 short days i will become your wife and you will become my husband! my skin has goosebumps just typing that. over six years together, and it's hard for me to remember when you weren't by my side. i feel blessed, lucky, and grateful that you will be my husband for the rest of our lives. you are smart, strong, kind, gentle, affectionate, thoughtful, and so much more. everything i could ever want, all wrapped up together! i am so excited to walk down the aisle, with you waiting at the end of it. and i can't wait to see what the future holds for us.

"i'm giving you all my love..." 9.14.12

5 days to go!

one week from today, shawn and i will be starting off our honeymoon!  i cannot wait to be in aruba, but at the same time, there are so many things happening before that.  i can hardly believe, that about 15 months ago, shawn had just proposed and the planning was just starting.  time has truly flown by! i think i will miss the wedding planning process, but at the same time, i am excited & ready to become a wife and start our married life together.

this week, shawn and i both are only working monday & tuesday.  then we have lots of errands and last minute details to take care it, rehearsal on thursday, wedding on friday, family continued celebration on saturday, and honeymoon on sunday! so excited!!

wedding preview: wedding perfume

some time ago, while perusing my wedding blogs, i came across a couple whose two week destination wedding celebration was like a dream.  there were several things that i noted in my mind to someday use for my own wedding celebration.  one was a wedding perfume.  the bride & groom, together, selected a scent to wear for those two weeks, and to pull out for anniversaries and special occasions.  i thought to myself, what an awesome idea! it took me a while to find my "wedding perfume" but after many sniff tests, shawn & i found one that we both LOVED for me.  we chose tocca graciella & if you haven't smelled it before, it is sweet & romantic; which is exactly what i wanted!
