Paper Source love!

Paper Source posted about my wedding in their newest blog post! They accidentally put Austin instead of Houston but regardless I am honored. They asked me to write a small description about how they inspired our theme and which products that I used. I’m really happy to see the post, and I was able to revisit my wedding a bit. Our first anniversary is coming in October and I am just really happy for all of the love this year has been!

Please look at the Paper Source Blog for my wedding!

Where have I been? Welll…..

It has been a few months since I did a real time post here. Well a few things have changed since I last really posted about my life. For the last 3 months we were house shopping! We fell in love with a home but someone put a HUGE offer over ours. So we continued our search and found nothing as big and beautiful as the home of our dreams. Until months later we received a call from our realtor saying the other buyers backed out and the seller took our back up offer!

So during Labor Day Weekend – we moved to our new home! Hardest thing about moving is dealing with our cats. They were so whiny when we slowly were packing up through out the month – they didn’t understand what was going on, they just knew SOMETHING was happening.

We adore our new home…nothing like going into your own space after a long day at the office! I never thought about having a certain type of “style” but hopefully we can make the inside modern even though the outside is pretty traditional.

Thanks Boston

We came back from our weekend in Boston. It was amazing, but being from Texas we kept hearing “why don’t you have a drawl” ^^; Funny how people think folks from Texas sound like cowboys. Boston is a city that has so much history, the small side roads have cobble stone, the doors and street lights still look vintage. I live in Houston – it is an urban sky scraper, concrete city with horrible public transportation. Boston had amazing subway and bus systems. It was really an amazing city to explore!

Our main reason for going was to see Yui get married!!! Yui has been my friend I met online forever ago when I first started college – I think we met online in 2005? We’ve met in person only 3 times total making Boston the 4th time we’ve been able to actually talk face to face. She is one of those friends you can not talk to for months and months and somehow it feels natural to meet up again and just feel awesome!

Her wedding was held at a wild life reserve – AMAZING!!! I really love outdoor weddings in cities that have great weather. Her dress was so pretty and unique and she wore this elegant red bird cage veil. I got alittle emotional seeing Yui and Luke tie the knot…I am really happy for them and so honored I could be a part of their happy day!

OK so we can’t talk about Boston without talking about CHEERS!! We went to the Cheers bar than influenced the show I grew up with. Food was normal bar food but seriously you can go to Boston without eating and drinking at this place. Very touristy but just so cool. We went to Beacon Street which had an amazing mixture of old and new. We also found the memorial square they have for the victims of the Boston bombings.
