taking time.

Today I took the time...

to read. Reading is so good for your soul, your mind, and developing time for you. I'm trying to do that more.

to take a walk. It's beautiful out today. These days I have been working really hard. I forced myself away from the computer to soak in the sun and warmer rays... and gosh, it felt great!

to have popcorn with my kids. I randomly found this blog post where the mom makes popcorn after school every day, and has that time to connect with her kids. This drew me in and I tried it today... and I loved.

to schedule a massage for myself. I haven't had a massage-in gosh..YEARS! It's time. I deserve it, right? Right!

To gear up for the upcoming season, I looked through some pictures of Mai and I at some weddings. I'm so ready & excited for this season to begin:

Photo Booth FUN!
What did you take time out to do today?

cloth wedding invites.

I love paper. Textures, weight, and style - it draws me in.
That being said, I also love trends. A couple weeks ago I met with one of my darling July brides. She told me about her wedding invitation and how it was going to be made on cloth. Well, that just intrigued me too much that I had to go home to find out more on this new trend.
And guess what? I am
I always love the newest trends. It's like having your first in-and-out burger.
There's just nothing quite like it.

This one is pretty much the coolest thing ever. It's a small story book!
Have you jumped on this? I would LOVE to hear!

Happy Wednesday!

In a sea of boxes.
Quite literally.
I'm kicking myself for not taking pictures of the overwhelming amount of boxes that literally filled our new home. My Gretchen said "It's like a maze to walk through here."
I know I have been so MIA, but I have not forgotten you! Were slowly getting settled and making this new home- a home. Which is a huge deal to me. Last night we hung the curtains to which I did a skip and dance. Well, yes, it's the little things for me.
On to other news filling my life, we picked an 2011 intern and I'm downright giddy on who we choose. She will be revealed later in the week so stay tuned!

And because my greatest obsession at wedding is cake pops, here's some eye candy.
Happy Monday!

My second favorite event to plan after weddings, is showers. Bridal showers are a favvvv, but baby showers are a second close. It's probably due to the fact that Newborns are such a treasure. So small. So dependent on you. and they smell oh so sweet.
Put a baby in my arms and you will see me glow {but I am done! Don't get any thoughts! :)}.
My sweet little sister is expecting her first at the end of this month. Oh, to go back to those first mommy moments. Everything is so new and different. It's a transitional point in any mom's life. I know she will love being a mom. It truly fills your heart.
My older sister and I threw her a shower a few weeks back. The theme: "Cute as a button". Seriously an amazing theme to run with for a babe shower! We were inspired and had a blast planning it.
Here are a few photos of our fun!

Mom to be: Emily Joy :)
sis, my mom & me!
On another note, this was my last event at my lovely home. We move next week to a new city, & a new home. I have loved living in this house. It's character and charm will be heavily missed.
