A Party? For Meeee?

Ohhhh, you guys, look what came in the mail the other day!


Hey, that’s a letter with a picture of Sparks and me on the stamp! How cool! And”¦


”¦Shiny paper liners? Someone knows me too well.

Yep, Sister Sparkler created the most adorable invitations for my bridal shower. I’m so excited for June 25th! She even thought to make a special invite for Miss Sparkler, and exclude any info I would have to blur.


Oh yeah, and there was an extra special surprise tucked in the envelope with it:


Seriously? I don’t think I could ask for a better maid of honor. Can you believe she didn’t think these were good enough? I told her I thought she was crazy. I love them! And getting this invite in the mail was such a touching moment for me. All of the thought and time being put into planning this party has really melted my heart. I wasn’t even expecting a shower, much less a free trip home.

Planning this wedding might be stressful at times, but it’s also reminded me how many wonderful friends we have and how amazingly supportive our families are. And while I’m (obviously) super excited to marry Sparks, I’m also really looking forward to celebrating with the people who make us feel so special. So, from the bottom of our hearts”¦thanks! We love you guys too.

Have there been any little moments amidst the stress of planning that have warmed your heart?

    And yes, over and over again, I am so touched by the things family and friends are doing for us. You are right on that at times it can be very stressful, but I am so looking forward to the big celebration with the people we love most. I know it will all be worth it in the end.
