Our wedding day is still such a blur, a lovely blur, but a blur nonetheless. However, the time leading up to our wedding is crystal clear. I remember the night I drew the flower of life per Jamie's request. (He said he never thought a drawing could turn him on! ...and then I spilled red wine on my shirt but figured out how to remove it with salt and boiling water.) I remember drawing the map of our farm at my desk after dark and painstakingly writing the words in cursive. I remember eating homemade pizza that was overloaded with grated Parmesan on a breezy afternoon as we stuffed the envelopes.
Making our invitations was a process I enjoyed so much. To save money, I fit three invitations on one 8.5" x 11" paper and double sided them with "The Particulars." On another paper, I fit six double sided RSVPs. On another I fit three maps of the farm which were single-sided.
