wedding frenzy pt. 3

So it has been a little while since I did a wedding frenzy post mainly because I have been getting into the frenzy and have hardly had a moment to breath much less post about it but I did want to share some of the exciting things that are going on, so I am forcing myself to take a little mental and physical break and do a little post about everything that has been going on!

In the very first wedding frenzy post I did, I mentioned that I was designing invitations for my brother and soon-to-be-sister-in-law's wedding but never actually showed you guys what they turned out like.  Without giving too much away (because the designs keep going throughout the whole wedding), I thought I'd give you this little peek.  =)

aren't they cute as stick people?  =)
Besides my brother's wedding, another dear, old friend of mine is getting married later in the month.  She was not able to find a veil that matched her gown so she asked if I wanted to undertake the challenge. I said yes and it has been a journey.  =P  But it has been a great task and I am working on the final project now but I thought I'd show you some of my practicing.  Did you know sewing on large beads to a porous fabric can be tricky?!  =P  But the earrings are coming out great that I am doing for her bridesmaids.  You'll get a post on that later.  =)

these look almost nothing like the final flower that we decided on but I figured the more I practiced, the better.
And now we are 18 days away from my brother's wedding, 11 days away from my flight back to Hawaii, and 10 days to finish up all my projects that I am still working on for them!  So I better get back to work!

Have a beautiful day, everyone!

six month musings...

Yes, folks, it has been that long since I have made an appearance on this blog and I apologize.  I have realized in my absence that I miss the people whom I have come to call friends through this humble little writing/life outlet.  So from here on out, you will be hearing from me much more regularly.  Especially since there are some pretty exciting things coming up in my near future!

But the point of this post is a little thoughtful reflection on my short time as a mother.  My little one is six months old today.  It feels like a landmark of sorts.  (I'm sure we all remember how important half birthdays were when we were young too.  The older I get, the more I am trying to forget birthdays and just enjoy each individual day but that is another post altogether.)  It feels like we have gotten through some of the hard stuff, have gotten to know this little person, and am ready to tackle the future as it comes to me.

I doubt there is anything that any mother loves more than watching their children grow.  Regardless of what the growth looks like, it is a mother's pride and joy to know that they have contributed to the development of this once baby but quickly growing person.  Man, if I am this nostalgic at my baby's half year birthday, I'm going to be a wreck when he gets older.  =P  Here are some of the things that I am savoring, remembering...thanking God for...each and every day.

Whether we are trying new tastes or finding all the facial muscles God gave us, this little one is making Corby and I two of the most blessed parents alive.

Have a beautiful day!

(P.S. If you watched the video, he is licking/sucking on a pineapple core.  He's just like mommy - we both love sour. =P)
