Spring has sprung


Believe it or not, I did not enhance the color on this pic.  Isn’t it amazing?!  Spring is in full force and I’m loving all the beautiful blooms.  This rose, in particular, is just one of thousands, no, probably more like MILLIONS, at Disneyland right now.  The plants there are always so perfect!

With the wedding just six months away, I’ve been doing a bit of spring cleaning.  It’s a good time to start going through boxes, closets, and drawers in order to start clearing things out before the big move-in with Justin.  When it comes to cleanliness, I can become a bit of an organizational freak.  Yes, I hang my clothes by style and color, and, of course, I line up shampoo bottles in the shower so the labels are showing.  It’s the Perfectionistic Artist side of me.

This is an interesting, in between, phase of life right now.  Time to decide what to keep and what to throw away in order to make room for life as a wife.  Lots of reflecting on the past and planning for the future.  Out with the old (or at least some of it) and in with the new.  I could get really cheesy here and say something about how all this preparation and anticipation is likened to a flower waiting to bloom – but don’t worry, I won’t.  You’re welcome :)

Speaking of flowers…I guess it’s time for me to start thinking about what kind of lovelies to gather for my bouquet!  Should I go with traditional flowers or will I try something new and different like the be-jewelled bouquets that last a lifetime?  Have you seen those yet?  If you haven’t, take a peek at Nancy’s of Baubles and Brides, here and here.  Decisions, decisions!  xo Alanna
