Happy Monday to you all! It feels good to be back online :) Thank you to everyone for your well wishes and prayers for my abuelita! I spoke with my dad yesterday and she is back home and in his care. This weekend I spent sometime around the apartment looking for something to give new life to. And as I saw my wilting V Day flowers on the table I decided to create a new arrangement with the ones that had life still in them. I simply just got another smaller vase and cut the stems about 3 inches. Can you believe these are almost 2 weeks old?! It's the little things that really made my weekend that much more enjoyable! What little thing made your weekend?

What are you and your lovies doing to celebrate today? Joe and I are treating ourselves to a special night out on Friday at Boka but tonight we are staying in and making a yummy chicken curry in coconut milk with soba noodles and unwinding with a glass (or 2) of vino! I always like to write a few sentiments in a card too...yes I'm a card person, but I don't really need a holiday to inspire me to pick up a pen. I just enjoy capturing the moments through words. After all, words are all we have, right! To show those we love that they really matter and that they are enough. And when words aren't enough we can always rely on crafting something sweet like this paper projects above! How great is that giant pom pom heart! May your day be a most lovely one indeed!

I've been on a mission (with Pinterest by my side) to narrow down the style of dress that speaks to the way I want to look on my wedding day. If this isn't it..then I don't know what else can top it at this point. I love the styling of the dress including the delicate beaded cap sleeves and the effortlessness of the dress itself. No fussy train or big bulky fabric just a sweet, romantic dress to set the mood for the entire day. To make it all even more special my future mother-in-law Mary Jean is taking on the role as my dress maker! She took my measurements last weekend and together we will work on creating something truly special and one of a kind! I'm excited beyond words to be working with her with this! She's one of the most talented and patient people I've ever met! After she jotted down my measurements, she showed me her wedding dress that she made for her big day! It was so simple with sweet touches added like beaded flowers all along the neckline. This is one project I know I'll be jumping in my pants to share with you... eekk! So excited!
