Dear Wedding Gods,
Hey there, it’s me, Jessica. I know it’s been a while since I’ve written you… I hope you haven’t forgotten about me, my wishes, or our agreements. I apologize for my lack of communication, I’ve been very busy avoiding thinking about the wedding over the last few months as it was becoming increasingly stressful to do so. But I know that you have been working your magic for me even while I have been distracted by other things (losing my job, moving 200 miles away, etc). Instead of asking you for something, like I normally do, today I want to thank you. Even though I have been nothing but stressed about this wedding for a while now, I have recently come to a place of peace. You see, even though we couldn’t afford to keep our original plans or venue, doors have opened to us and we’ve found a place that can accommodate us. Even though we were worried about money, especially after I became unemployed, we have been provided with a little extra money we needed. (Thank God for tax returns!) And even though we were worried about not getting to take a real honeymoon, we have been blessed to realize that we can and have booked a trip! So I just wanted to say thanks for playing a part in helping me get to this point and for passing along my pleas to the big guy in the sky. I couldn’t get through this experience without your help.
Peacefully and thankfully,

I came across this photo over the weekend while going through old photos with my mom. She took it in college. Pretty no? I love the antique quality it has. There’s something oh-so-lovely about single blooms in bud vases. I’m feeling some centerpiece inspiration!
