hello yellow

Hello all, hope you had a lovely weekend (+ Monday). This week I thought I'd share a little more about myself and a few of the things I absolutely love.

Yellow is my absolute favorite color! I love light buttercup yellow and deep mustard yellow the most. It wasn't a big surprise when I choose to incorporate yellow into my wedding colors (plus pair it with Seth's favorite color, blue, and you've got the Brewers colors)!

This color always seems to brighten my day, I hope it brightens yours!

This is usually the question (coupled with a curious stare) I get when I start to talk about the details of my wedding.

Yes, I'm engaged! And in a few days I will have been for a year- a year that went by faster than I could have imagined. My fiance, Seth, and I decided to have a crazy long engagement that will total a little more than two years. We decided that it would be best to hold off the wedding until I had graduated and we both had a little more time to settle into our careers.

So what does baseball have to do with it? Seth loves- I mean LOVES LOVES LOVES- sports of any kind. His two biggest (sport) loves are football and baseball. Our falls are filled with Sundays (and occasional Monday nights) having friends over to watch the Packers, while our summers are filled with trips down to Milwaukee to tailgate before watching the Brewers play.

Before we were engaged we talked about how fun it would be to have a baseball themed wedding. Something to have fun with and really showcase something we've loved over the years together. Since our engagement we've had fun coming up with different ideas to tie in our baseball theme with the wedding. Some ideas include: a will call table with tickets for escort cards, vintage coke bottle centerpieces and peanuts & cracker jacks as favors.

Our very first picture together... of course at Miller Park! (April 2007)

I'm excited to see the wedding come together over the next year as we anxiously await our big day- September 4th 2011!

mid-year resolution

Yes, I'm making a mid-year resolution...... one that I also made last year but didn't stick with. My resolution was/is to start a blog to document my creative endeavors. I actually did begin another blog at the beginning of the year and wound up posting a grand total of two times- Wow! Here is my excerpt from December 22, 2009:

It’s about that time of year when everyone starts thinking of all the things they will (or won’t) do in the year to come. About this time last year I too sat down and thought of all the things I wanted to accomplish in 2009- one of which was to start a Blog to document my creative endeavors. That being said…. with a little more than a week of the year left- I’ve finally had some free time to sit down and start one!

As I enter the year ahead, my resolution is to use this Blog to share my work with others and to stay motivated in my creative journey through life. I hope that you enjoy the journey with me.

Now that I'm finished with school (just graduated in May with a Journalism Major and Art Minor) I feel that I finally do have more time to devote to a blog.

So today is a day to restart. As I start a new chapter in life, I also begin this blog to document my creative journey. As I said last year, I say again, I hope that you enjoy the journey with me.

Welcome and enjoy!
