Currently obsessed with:

This Maxi Dress by Velvet...it's even better in person!
It's the perfect length, it has pockets and it super comfortable.  It's my honeymoon staple!

I also liked it in white...mine is black because the berry color was sold out :(

Wedding Countdown

19 Days.

What I'm Reading

Here are the two books currently on my night stand/in my gym bag:

Third book in the "Bride Quartet" series.  I love these books...nice, easy- the perfect night time reading book! (If you haven't read the first two...do so!)

Amazing book. Incredibly inspiring. I am so intrigued by this book and the author that I've started following him on Twitter.

Thank You Notes

I love thank you notes.  There's something so classic about writing a nice note and sending it through the mail.

I'm a firm believer that email thank you notes don't cut it.  Email is appropriate for most things, but I think it's important to show that you appreciate the trouble that someone went to to pick out a gift for you...no matter how big or small.

Here are some of my favorite "generic" (aka not personalized) thank-you notes:

What to do...

So now that Matt and I have been getting some wedding presents I need to figure out where and how to display them.  I want to do something fun, creative but also classic.

These are some pictures that I thought were neat...thoughts? Pictures of something you've done?

Oh and p.s. 32 days until the wedding!
