wedding plans and pins

Just the other day I realized it is completely legal to doodle my first name with Dan’s last name – it’s not some silly schoolgirl crush activity since I MUST have a beautiful signature! So I spent about five minutes doodling my soon-to-be full name and I just might have it down!

Wedding planning has commenced – and in full force! We’ve picked a venue, set a date {May 5, 2012!} and picked a theme {shabby chic picnic}. My mother said “shabby chic” is too trendy, so she’s calling it French garden picnic but, whatever. We also have colors chosen {dusty/aqua blue, apricot, brown, cream and maybe a sage green, if I can convince Dan}.

Here’s our venue – we’re already on the calendar for next May!

there’s a ring!

It has been almost a month since my last post, and for this I apologize! Our world has been chirping with the talk of …. duh duh duh dah! wedding details!

Dan proposed two weeks ago today, and our life has been aflutter with congratulations and planning details. We viewed a venue Tuesday and hope to book it on Monday. We have talked to most of our groomsmen and half of our bridesmaids, so the ball is rolling!

Check out the ring he designed:

The ring!
