April was a good mix of highs and lows. We received a lot of things in the mail which was very exciting. We were especially psyched to have received our first "wedding gift" of pots and pans that we purchased at a great deal as we both love to cook. We got our engagement photos from the lovely Nickersons (which are stunning, thank you). And we were able to send out our save the dates too! I can honestly say that I hit some lows as I was personally hand-writing addresses and names on the envelopes. Garrett works out on the island so he couldn't be here with me to help with most of it. I got all emotional when he was on a computer screen instead of next to me sticking on postage stamps. I may or may not have cried over some stupid envelopes. At the end of the day, I just needed a reminder that I will be marrying my best-friend. Marriage is about two people joining as one to portray God's grace towards others. It certainly isn't about the smallest design details.
So if you needed a reminder today, pause, and appreciate the little things in life.
- I took my little brother out to The Regional Assembly of Text on Main to use their typewriters. We went thrift shopping after that too, and I had found some gems.
- This verse is so beautiful. "Do not let your adorning be external - the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear - but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious."
- My mother got me these oxfords and I love them. I don't ever want them to fall apart.
- Garrett and I checked out our wedding venue for the first time (we booked it only after seeing photos from Pinterest!) and it was breathtaking. We look forward to seeing it again once summer hits.
