So. You missing me yet, or what? Gaaah. First, I’d like to thank you for coming back, and second, I’d like to thank the universe for all of the awesome ladies I have been meeting so far in 2014. It has been such an amazing start to the year! And thanks, universe, for the baby and everything too, duh.
So I maybe watched half of a documentary/infomercial about “The SECRET” on one particularly crabby-baby day recently, and despite my head hurting from all of the eye rolling (and crabbing), I felt a tiny bit humbled by having to acknowledge that somebody already came up with my life philosophy. I mean, not so much the cutting stuff out of magazines and taping it to poster board – I don’t have time to stare at a picture of a Corvette until it manifests itself – but I do TOTALLY believe that you get what you put out into the world. I was feeling so super low for a while there – having your body and mind just WRECKED is a hard thing to accept, even if it is for a totally awesome reason – and I was really starting to worry about my complete lack of motivation. But thankfully once I started throwing some positive energy out into the world, the good stuff started coming back around. So THANKS for being part of that!
Also thanks to my lovely (lovely, lovely) friend Lauren for asking me design her wedding clothes for her amazing wedding last Fall. She’s the “Downton Bride” I kept telling you about, and holy smokes, did she know how to wear a gown:
I really love both of these people. And I love that I got to be there to celebrate with them – it was such a happy wedding. I mean, weddings are just amazing days anyway, and then add to that the incredibly sweet things everyone had to say about these two. It was just a love fest, all around. And it was also totally GORGEOUS, as are the beautiful photos by Studio Starling.
Get a load of the bride’s nieces and nephew, amiright? Don’t you want to just steal them and hug them forever?? You can see more of this charming wedding in the Chicago Sun-Times feature – and make sure to check it out, because there are so many pretty details. Thank you so much, Lauren, for asking me to be a part of your day – you looked absolutely stunning – and CONGRATULATIONS to you and Jason!!
