Wonderful News and not so wonderful news!

When I have the option of good new or bad I chose the bad first to get it out of the way!

So here goes the bad first. I have been sick since New Years Eve. At first I thought it was a cold. It seemed to settle in my chest on Friday and just got worse from there. I was nauseous, dizzy and couldn't breathe. I went to the doctor last and was diagnosed with Pertussis. Thats what I get for working with children. I'm in bed till Thursday and can't go back to work till Friday. This one is a nightmare. I was up all last night coughing and just trying to catch my breathe. I do have a great nurse who ran out and got me movies, ice cream, cleaned the entire house and slept on the couch just to make sure I was ok. I'm pretty lucky.

Enough of the bad stuff...

Yesterday we go our final preview of our wedding invitations! Our dear friend Susannah who is a the artistic director at Devine Design created them just for us. She has worked with me since April and through numerous changes.

I have known Susannah for years and when her youngest was a baby I would babysit. Our families became very close over the years and they are the most delightful people I know! I even had Susannah and her daughter Dani came with me the day I picked my wedding gown. Susannah surprised me yesterday and let me know that our invitations are at no cost and are a gift from her. This is such an incredible blessing. I can not thank her enough.  She worked her creative magic! She knew I wanted lots of POP, color, and I wanted them fun!

They are exactly what I wanted. Cant wait to have them in my hands and get them out to family and friends.

What do you think?
