wedding showers. {and a WINNER!}

Are y'all tired of me going on & on about my wedding yet? 

I must admit I've absolutely LOVED reliving it! 

Bryan and I had a really short engagement ... 6 months ... Is that 'really short'? 
I sure felt like it was at the time but with a sick grandpa and a 101 year old great grandpa I HAD to be sure that they'd be there!!! 

Even though it was short, we still had lots of showers hosted by friends and family! It was SUCH a fun summer because it seemed we were constantly surrounded by the people that we love! 

{prep yourself for LOTS of pics!}

{some of the incredible gifts we received!}

We are so lucky to have so many people who wanted to celebrate our upcoming marriage with us ... Our friends and family were so incredibly gracious and helped to make the time before our wedding day so incredibly special! 

*** Now for the Giveaway winner ... Tracie from a Tale of Many Cities, you my dear are the LUCKY winner of a Dash & Albert rug! I'll be emailing soon!!! Which rug are you going to choose?! :) ***

Happy Tuesday Y'all! 
And thanks for always being SUCH sweeties! xo!

Cute pics! We had a kitchen shower as one of our showers too--they made me bake a cake (with everyone watching) without a recipe card! It was edible but much more like a cookie than a cake :)

Hope you are having a great week!

I love your Happy Everything plate! I've been meaning to get one of those.. but it may have to wait until the beau and I get our own place.

This makes me excited about my upcoming showers. And no, 6 months is not short! That's about how long my fiance and I will be engaged once we get married! Want to hear short? My fiance's brother just got engaged 2 weeks ago and is getting married April 8th! Now THAT is short!

I'm SO jealous of all your showers haha! We only had one because all of our family and our attendants are so spread out. Boo hiss! Regardless, I love reliving your wedding with you too...I still can't believe our one-year is coming up. Where has this year gone?!?! Hope you're having a great Tuesday! xoxo {av}
