|My original Wedding Inspiration Board...Things have definitely changed!|
For instance, I've been looking for a wedding dress over the past few months. I knew what 'look' I wanted, I was up for doing something daring with the cut and especially the color and I had my photos of my favorite dresses cut out and pasted into my personal 'lookbook.' However, most of the dresses were nowhere to be found and those that were ended up looking not quite as nice as I'd hoped. By the time I got to my third dress boutique, I was exhausted and not expecting to find anything I hadn't already seen. I was almost ready to give up and just order the Jenny Packham gown in my size straight from the designer, using about 1/3 of our wedding budget to do so, just to be able to end the process.

Bridal was also amazing; she was a sweet and very intuitive girl who really loved her work and made sure to pull dresses with Heather that incorporated elements in the dresses that I highlighted heavily in my book. Admittedly, I didn't end up buying any of the dresses I had pasted into my 'lookbook.' However, I WAS able to buy all of the beautiful attire that I'll be saying my vows in and also have a first dance my new husband and celebrate all night long with my best friends.

This is one of my favorite quotes, and I've been having to learn it over and over recently. It's going to continue be a challenge for me to not just accept where I am but try to grow and flourish while I'm here.
