I woke up at three in the morning to watch the royal wedding. As soon as I turned on the tv, Kate was just entering the car with her father. I could see in her smile the excitement and nervousness that many brides, myself included, feel before entering the church. I felt the same way as I watched her waving at the crowds of people on the street.
As soon as she stepped out of the car, I literally gasped — her beautiful gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen took my breath away, and she looked extraordinary in it. The lace, the train, her make-up and everything about her was magnificent, and I thought, perfect for the day.
As she made her way to the aisle, Harry’s hushed, ‘Wait till you see her’ to William, and a part of me made me remember my wedding day. When William finally saw her, he said, ‘You look beautiful’ and I died along with the other people who saw him say that to her. The looks that they gave to each other during that ceremony was so reminiscent of something I’ve seen before in couples who really, truly love each other.
When they finally were married, exited the church and got into the carriage, I saw her ask him, ‘Are you happy?’ and he replied, ‘Yes, are you?’ with her reply being the same — such a sign of love. My favorite part aside from them kissing not once, but twice on the balcony? The stolen moments, like when they went under the bridge, and you can see William holding Kate’s hand.
I wish them so much love & joy. They have such a promising and bright future, that I can’t help but be happy for such a great couple.
Since I finished the wedding scrapbook (above), it’s time for me to channel my creative juices into something else. Back to Michaels I go to gather some ideas for something amazing.

Lately, I’ve been craving Sangria from Nuestra Cocina (2135 SE Division Street, Portland). I was fortunate to have my first visit to this amazing restaurant earlier this April during The Bicycle Show when my husband & I met up with some of his friends who came in from NYC. (See: here.)
It’s a cute little place here in Oregon where they have a $12 pitcher of yummy goodness, as you can tell from above. It’s not your everyday, fruity Sangria though — it’s the winey, dark but fresh kind, full of enough spices to make your mouth tingle and your smile a little bit bigger. The pitcher itself gave me four full glasses, and worth every penny. I definitely need to stop by soon to fulfill my craving before summer ends!
One day, I’m going to own a beautiful craft + scrapbook room, full of stamps, ink pads, specialty paper, adorable stickers, ribbons, markers, envelopes… I could go on and on, but I won’t. Scrap booking not only puts my mind at ease, but keeps me busy and lets my creativity run wild. If it’s not already obvious enough, this scrapbook I’m doing is courtesy of one of the best days of my life — my wedding day.
Yup — it’s wedding scrapbook time for me.
I don’t like being:
Spent my Sunday in Newport, Oregon, on the Oregon Coast. Above, my husband with Tuna. You can tell by that smile that we had a great time.
My love + darling husband and I at Portland’s Brewfest.
Day 9 of 30 | Tumblr Challenge: A photo you took
My Godson with my husband (his Uncle + Godfather) going home from the Waterfront last month. It’s a recent photo of these two, and I love it because they’re both genuinely happy — plus, the look on my Godson’s face is just adorable.
Basically, this is him (@MRKPMNTL) when he wakes up in the morning. I was cracking up SO HARD when he showed me this post. Literally best poster, EVAR.
