Birthday Girl!

Today is Katherine Ann Stewart Rabbe's Birthday!!!
This is a girl I have known for close to 15 years, but it wasn't until the last 2.5 years that this relationship blossomed into a serious and fierce friendship.

Even though we are separated by 817 miles, the bond we have is inseparable. She is someone I can always count on and one that can literally finish my sentences. I'm truly thankful God has blessed me with such a wonderful person in my life. She makes bad days better and good days brighter. 
So today, I wish her another year full of love, laughter, happy days, big smiles, motivating words, positive experiences, encouraging friendships and exciting adventures.

Happy Birthday Best!

Savannah Wedding

Last year we attended 9 weddings - with the 9th one being ours! This past weekend we kicked off another "Year of Weddings" - this years total is 8 weddings!
Stephani and TG were married at The Mackey House in Savannah, GA. It was a cold night for an outside wedding, but we managed!
 The reception took place on the back deck of the home with a dance floor that covers the pool and plenty of heat lamps!
Overall, it was a successful first wedding of the year!
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Simmons!

Pinterest Inspired Wedding Favors

Our rustic themed wedding took place on October 6, 2012. Our wedding mostly consisted of DIY projects, antique store findings, pinterest inspired, natural charm.
When it came down to the wedding favor - it was a no-brainer -
Heart Shaped Bird Feeders!
It fit perfectly into the rustic theme - heart shaped for love - a DIY project - inspired by pinterest - a good time to be had with the in-laws while making them - and of course, good for the birds!

We bought a personalized stamp, from etsy - doodlebugdesign - bought a scrapbooking die cutting stamp to make the design of the tag - and stamped the back side of the tag with a "Thank You" stamp, purchased at Hobby Lobby.

Here is the final product!

To learn how to make these cute favors,
