What a lovely idea

I am a planner. And a list-making fanatic. And a ridiculous romantic. All of these little traits mean that I love documenting things about our relationship-and its only gotten worse since we've gotten engaged! I'm writing down every little thing so that I never forget this amazingly sweet time in our lives. This is why I am so in love with this "DIY Catalog of Love" project posted by Grace of Design Sponge (via Grace Light's sweet blog Poetic Home.) The latter Grace made this gift for her hubby to celebrate their 2-year anniversary.

Here's what she says:
"This is an antique wooden library card catalog box that now will hold the chapters of our relationship and life together. I created faux Dewey Decimal catalog cards, where the book number is replaced by milestone dates, chapters of our love overwrites book titles, and important locations substitute publisher cities. One day, when we are both old and wrinkled, I hope we will be able to fill the box completely with our life’s chapters together."

What a beautiful way to celebrate an anniversary or wedding-I can't wait to make ours!
Thank you to the two Graces for sharing!


Exciting News!

Its official...Geoff and I are engaged! We are so excited! For those of you who know Geoff, you thought this day might never come-haha! Geoff proposed on Saturday, September 5th in Lubbock. The planning has already begun and I can't wait to see what the future holds.
I love you baby!

We will be tying the knot at Barr Mansion in Austin, TX September of next year.
