A few weeks back, our Save the Dates finally went out in the mail. After many phases of design + little tweaks here and there ( like finding the right yellow in print ), it felt SO good to be finished. My mom came over, we had a little bit of wine, and knocked these out ( addressing ) in just a few hours. Not bad. I know I haven’t spoken too much about the wedding process here, but that’s because it’s … stressful. I knew going into this that I wasn’t a typical “bride to be” and a lot of the details make me want to crawl up and hide under the covers. I won’t lie, there have been several times where Michael and I have wondered why we didn’t just keep things simple. The thing is, though, that family is important to us. There are so many people that we couldn’t imagine getting married without their presence, so instead of freaking out over the guest count – we’ve tried to change our perspective. This day isn’t just about us. It’s about our families being together. We want that day to feel comfortable not only for ourselves, but our family as well.
More on everything wedding related soon, I promise. For now, I have some excited ( unrelated ) news to share! This week, FIDM posted an article / interview about me that I’m so happy to have been a part of. They asked some great questions and ONE of them kinda-maybe-most-definitely has to do with the Freelance Workshop I’ve been working super hard on for the past several months. And guess what? I’m not doing it alone. You can read the interview to learn more. Sorry to be such a tease. ;)
