and speaking of weddings...


We celebrated our tenth anniversary just a few months ago. TEN YEARS. A decade. I mean, that's not bad. Whenever I go to a wedding, like I did last weekend, I always reminisce about our own wedding day and all the things that have happened since. I can honestly say that a decade later, I value Nick more than I did that day. The depth of love that I feel is way more than I'd imagined in all my giddiness before walking down the aisle that April morning so many years ago. We've been stretched and learned and been drawn closer together, and I am so grateful for this man.

Going to weddings also gets me to thinking about the way our wedding played out, the details in the programs and decorations and food. In some ways I am glad I didn't get married in the era of Pinterest - it would not have been good for my indecisive ways. But on the other hand, it would've been fun to get a little more creative and let our personalities shine through a bit more. One of those ways was with our invitations. We got a great deal from a family friend, which was a blessing, but I'd definitely say it didn't reflect our style too much. White card stock, green lettering. The end.

But now there are so many amazing choices! I could spend hours looking at stationery (am I a nerd?)... the fonts! the foil! the florals! One of my favorite spots for fun cards to mark special occasions is definitely Minted - they have endless choices, and choices within choices - different color schemes and silhouettes for each card.

Now I can live out all my invitation dreams with pretty cards for things like babies. We've had a few in the last ten years.

What did you love about your wedding? Is there anything you'd change?
