Real wedding: Carrie + Eric

I just had to draw your attention to this beautiful wedding featured on 100 Layer Cake.  It's a forest fairytale wedding by at a riverside cabin.  It makes me sad and happy at the same time to see these images because these are exactly the type of photos I had hoped to capture at my own wedding in the woods (also at a riverside cabin) before a week of rain made the roads too muddy to cross.  *Sigh*  I'll always wonder what that would have been like.  In the mean time though, you can check out the full post with more photos here.

Custom Wedding Maps

Today I want to feature the work of a talented calligraphy artist and fellow Etsy seller who is also named Laura.  She's the owner/operator of Trial By Cupcakes. In addition to offering calligraphy services for wedding invitations and a really cool custom calligraphy address stamp (which I may have to order!), she'll design beautifully illustrated hand-drawn maps to accompany your invitations and guide your guests in style!  I really would've loved something like this for our wedding.  Maps are offered in black ink or hand-painted color.   Pretty Pretty!

What I'm Working on Now

We are moving this month, actually in no less than 2 weeks, so I'm working on that!

We just got the keys yesterday and brought over a few items including the new porch swing cushion and pillows I made!  We ordered a pizza, measured all the rooms, argued about where to put to the TV (as of yet still unresolved) and explored the cobwebby basement.  When our pizza arrived we sat on the porch and enjoyed listening to... nothing!  In contrast to our current apartment there's virtually no traffic and certainly no bar noise at this house.  As it got dark we unpacked a pint glass and found a votive candle for a make-shift porch lantern.  We were very tired but also very excited to be finally eating dinner on our new porch.  Today I'm dedicating the entire day to packing and cleaning.  Blog posts might be a little light in the next week or so but I'll try to keep on posting!
