Remembering the Words

We should be surrounded in our homes with things that make us think, challenge us or bring a smile.

As my husband and I embark on the beginning of our marriage we wanted to remember exactly what we said on our wedding day to each other. We want to be challenging ourselves to live up to those [lofty and sometimes hard to keep!] promises that we once made.

What do you surround yourself with in your home?

Recycling Wedding Decorations

I don’t know about you, but I spent AGES planning and decorating for my wedding. It was a huge DIY effort (thank you Husband for loving me when I’m insane) but it was so much fun to do.

After the wedding was over I had boxes full of all kinds of stuff. Luckily for me, I thought ahead. Most of the stuff that I bought I was able to reuse again in our home – ex. black wall frames, canvas storage bins, vases.

BUT, there was some other stuff that I was really tied to that I didn’t want to throw away but wouldn’t hold up well in a storage box. Our wedding day was a blast, so we decided to incorporate some of the pieces into our home.
