A Wedding

This weekend I directed the wedding of some very special friends. They left today for their honeymoon in Jamaica. It was a beautiful ceremony. Mike was in the wedding and I cried during their first dance because it was all so very sweet. They met at a wedding three years ago at the very same church he proposed in and they were also married in. I could see the hope and excitement in the eyes of these newlyweds and wondered why we can't keep that feeling for the rest of our lives?

Maybe it was because they seem so young to me, but I felt old this weekend. It seems to be hitting me more lately, as I creep closer to 35. I think about nine years ago when I got married and how quick the time has flown by, while at the same time thinking "my Lord why can't we move pass this phase in our lives". I know I need to do a better job of living in the moment versus always looking towards what's next and truly enjoying where I am now, and I'm working on it. But I can't say that it's an easy thing for me to do.

I'm probably just in let-down phase of everything I've had going on over the past couple of weeks. Anyone else go through that and always have to have something to look forward to in their heads?

Currently looking forward to: Beach trip in August and anniversary trip to Charleston in September
Currently getting over: Crazy past three weeks of travel, weddings, birthday parties and graduations

  1. I am terrible about living in the moment. Lately I keep thinking will I look back and think I just wasted my days on stupid stuff. If this is I think in my 40's, lord help me, what will I think in my 50's? Why is it so hard to live in the space you are?

  2. I loved this post! And I am horrible about trying to rush through to the next thing! Parenthood has been great for that aspect of my personality in that I have to slow down so I don't rush through my daughter's first years. This first year has flown by and too often I find myself "can't waiting" until the next big milestone!! How can it be so hard to just literally take everything one day at a time?? Weddings are a great reminder of where you have been and where we should constantly try and return to with all of those "new" feelings!!!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!



Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!


New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.
