The Wedding / Save the Dates

My sister is getting married in August and I am her Maid of Honor. Between juggling scouting venues, planning the events leading up to the wedding, compiling a theme, hunting for decorations, and the dozens of other responsibilities of a MOH, I've been pretty busy. Perhaps my favorite part of the whole process, however, is that I get to create the invitations, programs, and other handouts for the wedding!
I. Love. That. Stuff.

So I thought I'd share one of my latest projects for the wedding extravaganza -- the Save the Dates! I created them on PhotoShop, we printed them out on card stock, and then I x-acto-knifed each and every one of them. Ninety-five in all, folks. My hand was sore for two days. But I think it was worth it, and my sister was ecstatic. So without further ado, here are the Save the Dates!

I'll show the invitations in a few weeks when I finish them. Goodnight all!

Just Be

Today was just lovely. Actually, this past week has just been lovely in general. The weather here in New England is like a dream after the rough winter we had. I'm so grateful for sunshine, rain, and the promise of rebirth Spring brings each year. I don't know what it is about this Spring in particular, but I feel like I appreciate this season so much more than I usually do.

Take some time to just be this week. Things are getting stressful for me with finals approaching, but I've found so much joy in just taking my time with things lately and enjoying the beautiful world around me. I encourage you to embrace the sunshine, grab a good book, turn off your phone, sit by a tree, and just be.
