Best wedding invitation. Ever.

No scrolls, no bows. Just a beautiful story and pure font-y goodness. Designed by the groom himself.
Best. Invite. Ever.

Beautiful bridesmaids

{Source: Bespoke Press}

I love the casual way that these bridesmaids' dresses complement each other whilst each being quite individual. It's set off that little inner dialogue again and making me seriously wonder whether I should have been more serious about having 'proper' bridesmaids.

Ruffles and pleats

I love Jeff Ascough's photography style. It's classic but he always manages to catch the quirky details too.
Isn't the train on this dress amazing?

Home sweet home

Things I love about our new house;
  • it has a proper grown-up study. Or at least it will have when I get around to finding a desk and bookshelves to put in it.
  • it has beautiful high ceilings that make the house feel spacious and make me feel like I can b-r-e-a-t-h-e
  • the guest bedroom is as far away from the main bedroom as it can be without being an outbuilding. If you've ever had guests stay for an extended period of time, you'll know just how good a feature this is.
  • lastly, and most beautifully, the morning light throws out this pattern from the glass by the front door;

so SlightlyEvilLandlord; thank you for evicting us. We love our new house for all the reasons I've listed but mostly because it feels like a home. And that is the hardest thing to find when you're renting.

Unexpected mail....

As the last piece of unexpected post I received was the eviction notice from the SlightlyEvilLandlord, I was a little wary when I opened our new letterbox for the first time and found a tiny. unexpected package.

Inside was this mysterious little box:

and inside the box was this:

a silver sixpence from my mother-in-law-to-be to place in my shoe on the wedding day.

It's not often you hear people say the last line of that saying. Although we're not incorporating many traditions into our wedding this little piece of silver shininess delighted my inner-magpie.
