Quote of the week... be blessed!

"In marriage we marry a mystery, an other, a counterpart. In a sense the person we marry is a stranger about whom we have a magnificent hunch. The person we choose to marry is someone we love, but his depths, her intimate intricacies - we will come to know only in the long unraveling of time. We know enough about our beloved to know that we love him, to imagine that, as time goes on, we will come to enjoy her even more, become even more of ourselves in her presence. To our knowledge we add our willingness to embark on the journey of getting to know him, of coming to see her, even so wonderfully more. Swept up by attraction, attention, fantasy, hope, and a certain happy measure of recognition, we agree to come together for the mysterious future, to see where the journey will take us. This companionship on life’s journey is the hallmark of marriage, its natural province, its sweetest and most primal gift.In promising always, we promise each other time. We promise to exercise our love, to stretch it large enough to embrace the unforeseen realities of the future. We promise to learn to love beyond the level of our instincts and inclinations, to love in foul weather as well as good, In hard times as well as when we are exhilarated by the pleasures of romance.We change because of these promises. We shape ourselves according to them; we live in their midst and live differently because of them. We feel protected because of them. We try some things and resist trying others because, having promised, we feel secure. Marriage, the bond, makes us free to see, to be, to love. Our souls are protected; our hearts have come home."

The Pink & Green AKA Wedding!

This past weekend I attended the wedding of a good friend of mine from highschool! Although we didn' t attend the same college, we kept in touch throughout the years so it was good to see her marrying a guy she crushed on from way back in the day!

So as gift to my AKA fanatic friend ( lol- she will kill me when she sees this lol) I created a broom for her pink & green wedding. I also must say she did an excellent job pulling of these colors in the middle of October, in Chicago! So here's a picture of the broom and a candid shot from the wedding, I'll post more pictures shortly- Hope you like it!
