A Birthday Post for the Birthday Queen

Happy Birthday Mom! It's your very favorite day of the year! Luckily you get to be in one of your favorite places (Palm Springs) to celebrate! 

You are the light of every room, you are the energizer bunny of the family, you keep us all on our toes, and your everyone's biggest supporter! The world would be a much darker place without you! You have accepted Daniel into the family with no question or doubt and I will always be grateful for that. 
You are my favorite person to talk on the phone with, get a drink with, and run any errand with! I know you are having the best birthday weekend with Dad and your best friends!
We can't wait for you to get home so we can celebrate with you!
Love, love, love you!

A something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue!

The night before my wedding my parents sat me and Daniel down and handed me a box. As I opened it I received my something old, new, borrowed, and blue! My mom is thoughtful and creative and didn't miss a thing! I even had a sixpence in my shoe!

Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.

My something old was the clip in my hair, it is the clip that my grandma wore on her wedding day.

My something new was my necklace. It is a maple leaf, the theme of our wedding. My sweet Dad had it made for me. 
For something blue, my mom had my dad and Daniel cut a piece of blue fabric from one of their dress shirts. She had them cut into heart and sewn on the inside of my wedding dress over my heart.

My something borrowed came from my mom and was used in the temple so it is not photographed here.

What I love about these details is that not everyone knew about them but from all the details of my wedding, these were by far my favorite. I will treasure them all my life.
