this morning my friend katrina sent me this link. she said this song, by the old 97's, was on a wedding cd from her friend's wedding and it reminded her of pat and i.

it really is us. makes me think of the night he proposed in washington square park. (i think we may have found the song for our wedding video)

breathe me.

yesterday was a pretty long day. worked until about 6pm and then had a wrap up dinner for the lemon ball so my night was finally coming to a close around 9:30pm when i was driving home along kelly drive. i was in a very content and mellow mood and was enjoying the curvy and scenic ride along the river back to the city. my ipod seemed to know exactly how i was feeling and was playing the best songs. this was a favorite that i haven't listened to in awhile. breathe me by sia. this song will never get old. ever.

happy valentine's day.

some beautiful and elegant type completed for tiffany & co. by jessica hische. the type is their signature font, sterling, designed by h&fj. she had originally created the type, valentine script, for the original direction before they switched over to sterling.

a few weeks ago, we went to priscilla of boston, in wynnewood to check out some dresses for my lovely ladies. i would absolutely recommend this place. everyone that works there was so helpful and happy! they made our day so easy and fun!

i had found a few online that i absolutely loved (all of their dresses rock!) so kath, sam and chey put on a little fashion show for my sister, mom and i...we narrowed it down to 2 dresses. this past weekend we went back and made the final selection!

p.s. that is not my dress in the photos below!

this is the one!!! i love it!
