Today I am recovering from a sunburn accomplished while gardening the entire day away yesterday. Today is a bit chilly and so I have been mostly indoors and thinking a lot about my little sister and her wedding that will be happening in just under 3 weeks. So with the washer and dryer running and the bread rising in the oven, I had some time to create this lovely treasury in honour of the event. Her colours, as you can well guess, are sage and ivory, and in my opinion, a stunning choice. Timeless, elegant and romantic are words that come to mind when I see this colour combination. Of course, as is our nature, we are doing everything ourselves for the occasion. My baby sister is doing the majority of the flowers, and I'll finish them. I did the invitations, and will also do the thank-yous. We are doing all the decorations, including the cake, which I will be creating. My sister has done much of the food already, and is leaving just a few important details to the caterer. We really did try to figure out a way to get around supper without a caterer, but then the most important people in her life would be too busy to enjoy themselves at the wedding, so this is the one splurge we allowed ourselves. Regardless of all the crazy goings on at these large family gatherings, I am truly looking forward to this event. The laughter, the tears, the chaos, all add up to one big roller coaster ride for the senses, and something for my sister and I to talk about on the phone every morning for a long time to come. Not that we really need anything to talk about, that phone line will be busy regardless.
