The Countdown

18 Aug

I’m getting married in 45 days, man.  45 days.  I’m going to try to blog them all including the highs and the lows.  Welcome to 45 days and Running.  At this point, I’m starting to care less and less about the little things and focus on the fact that I’m so excited and so blessed to be marrying such a wonderful guy and having my family and his family with us 100%.  Some days my faith in finding my match was as small as a mustard seed…but here we are today and it’s awesome! 

Also, happy anniversary to a lovely, vibrant couple and it may be slightly overused but it’s great when it’s used and it’s true and it shines through…MARRYING YOUR BEST FRIEND is pretty damned dope.  Celebrate!  Their wedding is beautiful and definitely inspirational.  Oh, her blog is beyond dope.  She’s crafty and a definite decor diva.   Her last post on Cohabiting With Grace made me chuckle and I think I will be refering back to it in the VERY, VERY near future.

Anyway, yes that is my fortune.  Opened after a filling lunch with my Mums, Baby Sis, and Tresvant…and it’s already true.

Good And Grown Bride

2 Aug

I saved these pictures from when I saw this online Essence article about the wedding of Essence Atkins.  I loved what she and her husband had to say and I found the article very inspirational.   And plus she is looking great!  Anyway, look at her face…now that is an assured and satisfied (and gorgeous) woman.  Those are the looks that I plan to wear in addition to my big cheesy smile on my Big Day. 

If you have any pictures of any other Good And Grown Brides (YOU INCLUDED), let me know.  We should all be showing off!
