Signed, Sealed and Delivered

They're on their way!!!
 

Our invites have now been mailed! Yaaayyy!! It was such a huge relief to see them go! LOL! It took a lot longer to address the boxes, address the outer envelopes, print the seal correctly, lick the envelopes and add the stamps than I had anticipated. I found myself and my sisters slaving over them in the wee hours of the night. You know when you work on something for so long that you just want it done? Yeah, that's what ended up happening!! He he ... But they were worth it!! We are so excited to give them out. The other half of them we are hand delivering. I can't wait to see our guests' faces when they receive it!

We have also finalized the tuxedos for the guys and purchased half of our gifts for our parents.

Now the waiting game begins. We are really excited to hear back from all of our guests! =)

A Memorable Decade

July 6, 2002
Ten years ago today, I took a leap of faith and decided to give Mark a chance once again. It was the best decision I have ever made my whole life! Today we celebrate a decade of a beautiful love story that started out as friendship and grew to love. We are living proofs that if you are meant to be with someone, you will be. Sometimes, you just have to let destiny take its course.

Anniversary Adventures

Beach day - this is a tradition that we started when we were I think around three or four years into the relationship. Our yearly destination has always been Pinery Provincial Park near Grand Bend. This year we wanted to do something different, but we just couldn't pass off doing our tradition, so we went ahead with it. We went to Pinery! =) This visit was different from all the other years we've been there though. We went on a canoe ride! I know it's not that big of a deal, but for someone who cannot swim and going canoeing for the first time, it was kind of terrifying! That was me who was terrified by the way! I did enjoy it maybe fifty percent of the time. The other fifty percent, I was too preoccupied that the boat was going to turn over. He he ...

Buffalo bound - another first for this year was crossing the border to good old US of A! I have never been, but Mark has been countless of time. I told him that I wanted to do some sightseeing, so we went ahead and crossed. We ended up doing some shopping instead of sightseeing though. We ran into some hiccups on our way back, and let's just say that it definitely will make a good story for our kids. LOL! Let's just say that we are proud to say that we stuck it out "for better or worse". =)
Overall, it was a very memorable anniversary indeed!

Now and Then

We're double digits!!!

I know I've said this before, but I can't believe that we are now in double digits! We have a few more things that we can cross off the list.

Invites - Love! Love! Love them!! They are exactly how we wanted them. We ordered the invites pretty early because we were afraid that they will not be ready in time. However, to our surprise, it took the company 3 business days to have them made and mailed to us! I just couldn't believe it!! Especially because they were handmade and were coming internationally. It was definitely a pleasant surprise. =) We can't wait to give them out!!

Cake Flavour - Mark and I started brainstorming which cake flavours we like best. We were able to narrow it down to two flavours, but then we couldn't decide which flavour we want to cut into at the reception. Why you might ask, mainly because we both wanted our flavours to be cut when we first cut the cake! LOL! So how did we settle it, a good old "rock-paper-scissor"!! Ha! Ha! Then it's fair and square. =) Who won? He did! >_< He he ... you'll just have to wait and see which flavour he chose! We will have our tasting near the end of August.

A few other things that we have accomplished are the flower girl dresses and we have chosen our dances for the First dance, Father-Daughter dance and Mother-Son dance.

I also met up with Ate Apple to go over what I have already accomplished. Let's just say that I was nowhere near where I thought I should be. LOL! Time to get crackin'!
