We're Saving the Date!

Time was not my friend in the planning process.  One day, I glanced over at the calendar and realized that if I was going to send out save the dates, I had to get crackin'! 

So I turned to the internet for some inspiration and I came across this:

Save-the-date postcards!

Early on in our engagement, I promised Mr. M that we were just going to send out save-the-date postcards, to keep things simple.  Oddly, I also felt like it was my stroke of genius "why design save the date cards? Why not just send out some postcards and slap a date on the back? Easy-peasy!"  Don't you just love when you feel like you've concocted some brilliant and original idea just to discover that it's been done many times over?

A few clicks later, I found another inspiration picture that made me stop in my tracks.

As much as I really loved the idea of using paper airplanes, it didn't really make sense for our wedding.  But I couldn't let the idea go.  After some thought, I had a moment of "oh wait, I could fold that paper into something else!"  

But if paper airplanes weren't a good fit, then what was?

Hello Again

Dearest Hive,

The past few months have were a whirlwind, one so intense that I had to take a moment away to get my new life in order.  Our wedding has come and gone, I've quit my job, moved far away from home, and started coping with a new round of separation from my darling husband (husband!).  

I'm sorry for being away for so long, I swear I didn't think I would be gone for more than a few weeks!  But I'm back, determined to tackle all the posts I didn't get to before our big day and then, I'll dive into our recaps (gulp).  

Please accept this sneak peek at our pics, as a token of my affection:

You know, because I love y'all and I mean it.


Mrs. M

P.S. --

I almost forgot to introduce you to our newest addition,

Meli Marmalade!  In case you're wondering, Meli (rhymes with Kelly) is a French Bulldog/Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix; part puppy therapist and a very faithful companion.  

And with that, I'm getting back to work!  Let the games begin (again)!
