Save the Date Card, originally uploaded by shaunaforce.

This is the proof for the Save the Date card we envisioned, which a lovely local designer is making a reality for us.

When I first pulled the photo from the blue envelope, I welled up with tears. Oh, I love him so. He has guided me home.

When he first saw the side with the words, he started to cry, in his kitchen. He didn't need to say a word.

This makes it official. We really are going to be married.

Wow.

I love those invitations! They are fabulously simple, personal, and unpretentious. Very cool. :-) And, no doubt the food is going to be amazing...

And, of course, CONGRATS!

James and Ahern? Welsh and Irish blood (respectively) maybe? Always knew you had Celtic fire in you from the way you write.

Welsh: Llongyfarchiadau ar eich bywyd newydd!

Irish: Go maire tú do shaol úr!

English: Congratulations on your new life!

What beautiful invites! They are so unique and I always think that unique is best. None of these commercialized cards in a box. Thanks for all of the great content. I've never posted before but have been reading for quite a while. Congratulations to you and Daniel!

Congratulations! ^.^ I know you'll love it.

(Oh, I didn't understand the "yes" until I went back to your Oct post. So wonderful, so poetic!)
