I am learning so much about myself through planning our wedding, and it turns out that indecision is my arch nemesis. We took a lot of time to enjoy our engagement and I am so grateful for that season of life. After all, this is a new chapter of our lives to enjoy... and I already had a Pinterest board that would make any newly engaged man sweat from nervousness.
If I could give any word of advice, it would be enjoy this completely unique season. We are about seven months out and just now really diving in. As I mentioned above, begin by deciding what you like. Between all the awesome magazines and websites that brides love, it can be difficult to even know what you like. Figure out your combined style and work on finding inspiration together. For me, the hardest part was funneling down ideas into a specific style, but once we got there it has made choosing all the parts and pieces so much easier.
From there, we began to choose specifics like a date, venue and time of day. Choosing a venue was much harder than I could have dreamed. We checked out so many places but ended back up with where we began, across the street from our proposal spot. The date was easy to pick because the venue had limited open days in the time of year we wanted, but lets face it, that was probably a good thing.
There you have it! I hope my tips for a happy terrarium will help you as you create yours! Do you have any tips or ideas? Please share them below.
|I spent most of the day painting furniture, doing dishes, and cleaning floors. By the afternoon I was ready for coffee and decided that I needed a new candle from East River Trading Co. It smells like citrus and it's pretty great , I must say. Anyway, this is supposedly an outfit post so I am wearing jeans and kimono from Forever 21, shoes from Target, and a v-neck from the mens section. My dad got me the kimono for Easter, he did good right?! |
Well have a great weekend, and check back next week for a couple projects that I have up my sleeve!
I found this little guy beside a dumpster. I rode by a couple times before I decided to bring it home. I’m really glad I did.
I ended up with about $3 worth of paint and new glass knobs for $2 each. Hobby Lobby runs half-off specials on them all the time. All it needed was tightening up the screws and now it’s a cute little piece that I love. What’s the best thing you’ve found beside the road?
|There is something so refreshing and life-breathing about having plants in your home. Plants are purposeful because they purify the air, but I believe that God made them beautiful to bring peace to the soul. One of my favorite places is Dothan Nurseries because of their stunning collection of all kinds of flowers, plants, and my favorite, succulents. I hope to do a tour of the whole property one day to share, but even these photos show a little glimpse of how perfect this place is.|
