Something Old

Today we got a package from Jeremy's mom, and in it was a nice little surprise for our wedding.

When Jeremy was a baby, his Aunt Gracie sewed him this bonnet...

And along with the bonnet came this note...

I'm just a little handkerchief,
Quite square as you can see.
But with a stitch or two,
They made a bonnet out of me.

I'll be worn home from the hospital,
Or on the Christening day.
Then neatly pressed and folded,
I'll be carefully packed away.

On her wedding day, a bride must have.
Traditionally something old.
Good luck, good health, and happiness,
It brings her, so its told.

Then what could be more pleasant,
Than to unpack little me.
To snip a stitch or two and find,
Her handkerchief I'll be.

And if I'm first word by a boy,
He'll surely someday wed.
Then he can give his lovely bride,
The hankey once wore on his head.

Now I have my something old, something new (earrings my parents bought me (along with many other things)), and something blue (my garter). I still have to find my something borrowed. I'll have to think about that for a while.

Wedding plans are now in full swing. Last weekend I took my bridal portraits with my photographer, Bev, and my friend, Kristen. We had a lot of fun, and I can't wait to see them. But don't ask to see them yourself, cause I'm keeping them under lock and key until after the wedding. We are also starting to get some RSVP's back from the invitations that went out a few weeks ago. It's really exciting to come home every day and find 3-4 more in the mailbox. We like to look at the postage stamp to see what city it came from and then try to guess who sent it.

Now it's all about doing programs, gifts, songs, and finalizing menues... oh yea, and picking hotels for our 19 day honeymoon in Hawaii!!!

Just 65 more days!
