Dancing Lessons with Grandmommy!

Dawson and I just had our first dance lesson last night with Grandmommy! We started off a little rough. We were tripping all over each other. But, we were amazed at Grandmommy's teaching style. She started off with simple steps and by the end we were dancing away to Frank Sinatra!

Our Wedding is in just 2 months! I can't believe it. I have now made 30 out of the 150 paintings... so I still have a little work to do.

The Royal Wedding

Here is a link to the Royal Wedding Website!!

Bachelorette Party/ Shower/ Birthday

What an amazing weekend!!
It started Dawson throwing a surprise party for me on Friday night at Annabel Lee's Tavern.

Ashley and I went to yoga Saturday morning before the bachelorette night began. Saturday, all of my friends, including Elon and Friends School friends met at my parents house. We had the best night ever! We went to a wine tasting, followed by a group picture on the top of Federal Hill, then dinner at my favorite restaurant, Pazo's, and then dancing at The Havana Club!!

Sunday, we all woke up a little hungover and then I was surprised with a Shower! All of my mom's friends came, Chrissy and Lucia showed up and Marietta! It couldn't have been more perfect. Then, Dawson and my dad met us all at Tio Pepe's for a Birthday dinner for my mom and I. When I got home, Dawson gave me some birthday gifts, including an I-PHONE!!!

... Been a while!!

It's been tooo long since my last post. So much has happened.

We are now less than 4 months away from the big day!! So excited! There is still a lot to do, but most of the big stuff is taken care of.

I'm having so much fun looking for fabulous hotels in Paris and along the French Riviera. So far, it looks like we are going to stay at this nice, cute, hidden hotel in Paris recommended by the Cusacks called, Hotel Grandes Ecoles on the West bank. We are going to spend several days in Paris visiting museums, going to cafes, and enjoying the area. Then, we are going on a day trip to Versailles and maybe rent bikes for the day. We will do an overnight trip to Giverny. I am really looking forward to this. There, we will probably stay in a little bed and breakfast and get a private tour along with a painting lesson where Monet painted the waterlilies! THEN, we will take a plane to Nice and stay on the coast for the last week of the trip. I think we will first stay in Nice for 3 nights at a reasonable hotel, and then go stay at a fancy hotel (if we can). I'm thinking Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc, which is a historic hotel on the water. All of the hotels look amazing. I can't wait!!!

When Dawson and I went to the Detroit Zoo over the summer, when he was working on the movie "Real Steel," we were both amazed by the Peacocks. They have such beautiful colors and I would love to use the blue from these images of the Peacocks.

Save the Dates

Dawson personally designed our Save the Dates and I'm so proud of them. The front of the postcard is a painting by our favorite local artist and friend, Greg Otto. He gave us these cards as an engagement present to use for our save the dates. We spent a whole day printing, cutting, pasting. We did it together, which was fun!
