i love this poem! must use it somehow

“Our Union” by Hafiz.

Our union is like this: You feel cold, so I reach for a blanket to cover our shivering feet.A hunger comes into your body, so I run to my garden and start digging potatoes.You asked for a few words of comfort and guidance, and I quickly kneel by your side offering you a whole book as a gift.You ache with loneliness one night so much you weep, and I say here is a rope, tie it around me, I will be your companion for life

the shopping bug

I feel like once i start burning the cards I cant stop. Putting on hold in my mind today this skirt from Thread Social............ Ignore that halter top please.
Pros- its black and can be worn to work, it is on sale, it is totally me and just did taxes and get paid today

Cons- there is all sorts of horrible shit in this world, think of what else you could use your money towards you selfish a-hole! And!!!!! Your going on vacation. What? You dont think your going to find 100 things there? JESUS!

hear gear

kinda of think i will be purchasing this headband from bando.........
even though it was worn by *gasp* miss taylor swift. i like the dainty bows, and since my grecian idea got the ka putz i think this is the next best thing. what do you think?


just purchase this hot number for my shower/ post wedding brunch off the outnet. It is a sister company to netaporter. If you have never heard of these I suggest you check them out!!!!!!
Marc by Marc Jacobs White Paisley Deco dress
Mine all mine for $147


I love all these pictures i have been seeing of large balloons or a big cluster. Reminds me of the old Dior adds. Would love to incorporate this into my wedding photos or have them strung on chairs. This is all to bad because my F finds them and i quote "tacky, and white trash" WHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Maybe one will just have to magically show up.......

50 more days tills vacation! wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

re duex

the crane project has already got me going nuts. my love managed to crank out one. i only added paper to the recycling bin. derrrrrrrrrrr. i took my frustration out on a old frumpy maxi skirt i purchased for 89cents at the thrift store this summer and made this cute skirt and bolero. dont think i will wear them together, might give people nausea

Grecian Head Piece

i really really want one of these. though i must say i'm scared i have to many visions going on here. this one is $250 on
i wonder why they dont have any model pics...... errrrr

this could be a nice compromise
but when have i ever done that?

1,000 paper cranes

after talking to a few clients about their favorite wedding traditions one that has stuck with me is when the bride folds 1,000 paper cranes before her wedding. i wiki'd it and also got this

A thousand paper cranes is also traditionally given as a wedding gift by the folder, who is wishing a thousand years of happiness and prosperity upon the couple. It can also be gifted to a new baby for long life and good luck. Hanging a Senbazuru in one's home is thought to be a powerfully lucky and benevolent charm. It is also used as a matchmaking charm for a Japanese girl when she turns 13 years old. She would make 1000 paper cranes and give it to an admired boy.

in my one interpretation i will fold them myself with maybe a few helping hands. and hang the from the ceiling at my Detroit party, or lay them on tables at my actual wedding. when i'm done i can make a mobile like this!

so mila jojovich has been my wedding inspiration well before i got engaged. love the earthy almost goddess like hair and makeup. will try to re create! even thought i already have my dress. scared to post it in fear that B will see it. (kinda old fashioned i guess)
would love for him to wear a light or seersucker suit. he has no thoughts on that. in fact he would really just like to wear the same suit he wore to my brothers wedding. BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!! yet so practical. * le sigh*
