and we're married.

goodness! a girl can get lost in her wedding planning. i miss it. like rrreally miss the planning. i've been staring at what husband calls "the scary blue book" (aka: my wedd-planning journal) which often times had lots of color prints and magazine tear sheets and notes sticking out from all ends. BOY, DOES IT FEEL GOOOOD TO BE MARRIED. I feel magical. and a little different. but good different. we had so much fun planning every detail, and crafting mustaches on sticks til 2am. so.much.LOVE.

Of all the weddings Ive ever seen, this is my absolute favorite. EVER. the ethereal vibe is right up my alley. handrawn invitations. ribboned chairs. and a field of lavender to boot! I should probably confess that future husband and I often turn to these photos for inspiration for our very own, we just can't help ourselves ♥ VIA STYLEMEPRETTY, PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOSE VILLA

I love sooo many details about this wedding. So much that it's 3:30 in the morning and after an accidental 3 hour "power nap" Im wide awake drying laundry and turning this wedding into an inspiration board. I think I might be a little obsessed over those Kelly Green Bridesmaids dresses..they are insanely beautiful and I now have a profound appreciation for the color GREEN.

my weekend

im afraid ive spent the majority of my weekend lying in bed under a sea of blankets with a cold. a terrible cold. the worst in a long time. Alex let the sun light in and even that couldnt cheer me up. all i kept thinking was how i wanted be on the other side of the window. he did however let me snuggle up on his belly while he played with my hair and then i dozed off into a deep dark sleep. the future hubbs is so good to me. thank you hun for putting up with my whimpering and kleenex pyramid and prickly legs. i love you soooooooo much.

Braided Bliss

Don't you just love braids? I do. My mother used barbie's hair as a demonstration and soon enough I was braiding all my dolls hair. I couldnt stop. They're just so darn pretty. via here
