setting the scene

Lucky for me I am marrying the most talented man on the planet...

and he's super cute with a hat and a shovel...

You think this looks cool?
Just wait. It is far from finished. :o)
But you'll have to wait another 56 days before 
I'll show you what it will look like when it's done.

I know, I know.. so mean... but... David didn't want me to show 
this photo at all so you're lucky to get this close of a sneak peak. 
Hopefully he won't be dropping by my blog today he he

He showed me how to stain :o)

We picked the colors together the other day.
And yesterday we painted until the sun set.

And this morning the sun peaked out 
and the blue looked exactly how I dreamed it would.

All I can say that after every detail has been added and finished,
this is going to be one awesome backdrop for our special day.

oh and it's friday today... 
Doesn't get much better than that!

Have a wonderful weekend my lovely friends!
