We’re about three months out and I’m. Getting. So Excited!!!!!

I can’t believe we’re getting so close!  I wrote about the anticipation of the wedding and bringing all of our family and friends together back in December, but now it’s really starting to resonate.  The Mister and I feel that the wedding isn’t really about us (I mean, it is…but it’s not), but rather it’s a reason for all of the people that are near and dear to us to be in the same space…like a family reunion.

What’s that?  You say that you’d like one of these?  Well, click here and you can see bags made from newspaper, yellow pages, juice boxes, seat belts, VHS tapes…all sorts of stuff!
