wedding wednesday's

sorry no pics this wednesday..

just more ramblings from a stressed out bride
David and I have been working on getting the invitations done as we were aiming to have them out by the end of this month. We want to make sure that we get replies back as soon as possible as the number of people we would like to invite is a lot bigger than what we can actually fit into our backyard...

What else.. oh yeah wedding cake. We're working on final sketches and then we need to order it ASAP! Been slacking a bit on that one...

...and then there's corsages for the bridesmaids... got to find clothes for David.. and his groomsmen... my wedding crown I've been working on... and the gym. I have to go to the gym more...

Can you tell I am a little stressed out?
I think I might put nova of love and nova designs on vacation as we get closer to the big day. I want to make sure I have time to do everything I need to and frankly it's really hard to fit day job and 3 shops into one busy brides life...

and I miss snuggling up with David and bury my nose in that warm spot behind his ear...

and my heart skips a beat

Tulips growing on trees

 Forrest roses
If I could I would eat this color for breakfast

The smallest bouquet in the world

Strange little cocoon
Makes me wanna knock and see who's home

My new spiky friend
I shall name him Albert
The most amazing man in the whole world
Sorry he's all mine :o)

walking in the woods is good for your soul

Sometimes I think I feel too intensely
and I care a little too deeply.

and it hurts my heart
and sometimes even my head...

I need a break.
Before something gets broken.

anyone else really happy it's friday?
