Easter + News

How was everyone's Easters? I hope great, our's was fabulous. We started our Easter morning being door greeters at our early morning (8:30) church service and listening to a great sermon. After church Eric and I then had a mini Easter photoshoot to document a rare moment in which we both looked quite classy for a couple islanders. I must admit that I love this picture of us although we both are being blinded by the sun, but nonetheless looking good. We spent the rest of the morning watching House on Netflix until we met up with our friends around 2:00 for a potluck Easter dinner, which was amazing and more than filling. Unfortunately, I had to leave soon after to make it to work on time. Overall, our day was awesome for it was spent with good company and accompanied with good times. 

On another note, here is some exciting, yet bittersweet news:
Thursday is my last day of working at the beach shop. 

After working there for over a year I have to finally say goodbye so that I can put my time and energy into making all the final arrangements for our wedding day. Although everything is coming together, there are still so many little things that haven't been addressed. As crazy as this may seem, but we are now two months away from our big day and as much as I am going to miss everyone at work I still feel that right now what as good of a time as any to say goodbye + with Eric's job searching taking place who knows where we will eventually end up. 

Hope that you have an awesome week :)

Bridal Shower Weekend

It's already my bridal shower weekend and to say that I am excited would be an understatement. We have been counting down the days for so long that it just seems so surreal. I am truly blessed to have such an amazing group of ladies in my life who are all coming together to celebrate such a special day in my honor. I also get to attend my good friend's bridal shower while I'm there as well, so it'll be nothing short of a good time with great company.

Hope that your weekend is just as blessed :)
