A Peak At Our Save-the-Dates!

Yesterday morning I posted a few engagement pictures. I left one of my favorites out because I felt it deserves a little explaining…

A month and a half ago, my Grammie passed away. When I was going through pictures I found one of my favorites that I’d forgotten about. It’s a picture of my Grammie and her husband, my grandfather (he died before I was born), in 1959 at a State Park (I think in either Iowa or South Dakota).
I think it’s one of the cutest pictures I've ever seen. So when Sean and I were down in Laguna I really wanted to find a park sign and recreate this photo.

As we were walking back from the beach we saw a small park and alas, a park sign! Sean and I hopped over the bushes and this gem was taken:

We absolutely LOVE this picture and will be using it for our Save-the-Dates. Well, not exactly this one. For anyone who knows me and my fiance, we are always smiling, laughing, and being goofy! So we took this one too:
This one will be our Save-the-Date, and my cousin who took the photos has photo shopped our wedding information into the park sign. It looks fantastic! We couldn’t be happier, and I know Grammie is very happy and smiling down on us :)

On the running front (as this is a running blog!), I have nothing to report. Today is a rest day! I’m going into work early today because I’m leaving early to pick out our kitchen cabinets for our house!!! Weeeee!!!!!!!!!!! La vie est bonne :)

Happy Wednesday!
