my lovey...

I am betrothed to my college sweetheart and we plan to wed in autumn of next year.
Today, after seeing a play at our local community theater, I asked my Momma if she'd like to stop in for a few minutes to a boutique wedding dress shop to look. Delighted she asked if I had my camera. This would be the first dress looking excursion (much more exciting than the play we saw...) After parking near the shop, we realized the theater and the shop were literally a kitty corner block from one another. We laughed because it took us a while to navigate the one way streets and parallel parking. Butterflies danced with excitement in my tummy as we approached the door, the same way I felt yesterday as I saw my fiance walk down the stairs at a work function that he volunteered to film... He's so handsome! Closed: Sundays. Rats! 

Oh well, another time.

I work hard not to fall into that typical cliched bride, solely focused on how this life affirming day celebrates only her. The fiance and I have decided that this day is a celebration of those who love us too--not only me or me and him. When you start to think about this special day in that context, suddenly its so much more fun and less overwhelming!

I found an adorable pink and sliver glittered "Bride-to-Be" garland on sale a few weeks ago. I tied it to the head of my antique, iron bed. It is so sweet and fun reminder... like I'd forget!  ;)

Although the media is all doom and gloom with deafening news about our economy and the stress and chaos of the encroaching election are overwhelming, there are still blessings to count. There are still joys to enjoy. If you can and when you can, look for them. Humans are resilient. We will find our way through all of this. Have faith. Pray. Enjoy those you love. And live!



  1. awwww....i can't believe that you are getting MARRIED!!!! so very sweet. :) yay!!

  2. I had the same feelings when we were engaged. Although I was incredibly excited, I tended to get irritated when people asked me for details, because 1) I wanted to surprise everyone, and 2) I tend to be a private person (I love to listen to others, but tend not to share). It gets better, then worse, then much better again! And trust me, marriage is SO worth it!!

  3. April, thank you for validating those feelings. I AM soo relieved to hear I'm not the only one! :) Hugs!


Leave Sweet Bean Some Love!
