when i opened this box from the painted press – my heart kind of skipped.
this was the first time i saw my future name in print minus when i write it myself for fun haha.
eddie asked how i felt when i saw it – and to be honest i got tears in my eyes and felt peaceful.
and then i realized how much will be changing.
it’s real – it’s happening – and i’m in love with him and i can’t wait to see this name all over the place.
the fact that i’m able to make something so personal in a little dish just brings a little extra joy to this moment.
and then their little packaging message “you are loved” was like a silent reassurance from the Lord.
seeing that new last name – following the name i’ve always known – it kind of stilled me.
like – things will really be changing.
not just a wedding – a wedding is just an event – but a marriage.
we’re building something – and learning more and more about each other – and being challenged along the way.
and then throw moving hundreds of miles away from my family and friends – it’s just…a lot.
so when i read that you are loved it was like a warm hug from God – reminding me that i am, in fact, loved.
did y’all happen to notice the knot bangle?
isn’t it perfection for a wedding – get it? tie the knot ? 😉
these will be one of the gifts my bridesmaids will be getting – to help commemorate the journey eddie and i are embarking on.
i think pairing a personalized dish with a bangle for each bridesmaid (or even for a wedding present, a birthday present, etc) is such a sweet idea. so pin this little idea away for when you’re looking for a special gift for a friend. <3
i received this jewelry dish & knot bracelet from the painted press fo’free to give you an honest review; and i love it.
i was not paid to write this post and all opinions and pictures are my own.
