last night...


Last night I ran to Border's at the last minute to get Brett a little something for Valentines Day, (he got me orange roses) and had a fun surprise! I was headed towards check out and noticed a girl crouched by the wedding magazines so I decided to see if maybe, just maybe, our magazine had been published yet and there it was!!! It was kind of a downer to see it by myself, I wanted to run up and show a stranger, but I contained myself. I may have mentioned it to the cashier when he asked why I was buying 9 copies, but I think I sounded really cool and casual. Not. Anyway, exciting.

I feel really lucky to have this. I have been struggling to decide what wedding stuff I should/need/want to keep. Do I keep every card we received? Will I want this stuff in 50 years? I have been in a major tossing out, downsizing mood lately but don't want to be too hasty. I know I love looking at my relatives old things...

Brides, please tell me, what did you keep? What did you toss?


They did a great job with the write up! A couple's relaxed ceremony at a midtown bistro celebrates the season and the bride's love of color and design. Perfect!

I can't wait to see the article up close, but the photos look beautiful!!! Be sure to bring the magazine into work! Congrats - what a unique opportunity to have your wedding day memories captured and shared with all of Atlanta!

wow! The article and pictures look amazing. I can't wait to see it in real life. What a great Valentine's day surprise.

Oh I forgot, as for the throwing out of wedding things. I did keep things for quite a while (too long), but when we moved from Buffalo I threw out a ton. I kept cards from grandparents, parents, and wedding party/close friends and threw out the rest. The pictures and memories will last forever so I figured I didn't need to feel bad about throwing stuff out.
