Countdown: 12 days
Promise to catch all of you little birds up soon, especially this week. Things have been much of a whirlwind the past month. A lot of bittersweet moments, time I’m really trying to cherish with family and friends before I pack up and become a Texan. The Lord has been so kind recently and I have felt so undeserving of it all. Not only have I been in this preparation stage of becoming a wife, but I’m really beginning to feel a multitude of change within me overall. Yes, I’m entering into full “adult status”, however, I feel this has been one of the most difficult, yet beneficial seasons of my life. I’m so thankful to have been blessed with so many amazing friends, friends I once dreamed of having. As ready as I now am to get this wedding rolling, I’m still wanting to hold tightly to the minutes of each day to soak in and be able to remember every laugh, every thought, every action that happens throughout my long, yet short days.
On another note, I received a call about my dress today, and we are finally going back up Thursday for my (hopefully) last dress fitting and bring that baby home on Friday. For those of you unaware, I went up for my first fitting two weeks ago, and when they made my dress, they definitely added enough length, though not enough in the torso. Thanks to my 6’ frame, some issues were bound to happen. BUT they were able to send it back to the designer in NY and it is being overnighted Wednesday and will be there Thursday! Woohoo!
For now, I am off to search for some burlap fabric. mmmm. Blog soon! Love and peaches.
Bridesmaids’ dresses are ordered and I am toooo excited!! Jcrew sent me the color swatches that I chose for the girls to choose from, and they are even more beautiful in person. I tried to take a picture of them to post, but the picture makes them look so much different. I gave the girl’s three different dress style options and 2-4 color choices listed with each dress. I wanted the girls to pick the one they loved and would feel most comfortable in. What is so neat is that we turned out with 3 of each color! It turned out PERFECT! So so excited to see all of them standing up there in their beauty. Yay for the little things falling into place!
