I'm a bee! I'm a bee!
I can't believe they picked me!!
Wow! I am still in awe that I'm here... as Miss. Brooch! I've pined over this. I've longed for this. I've literally dreamed of this! For over a year, I've tried to explain to everyone I know, non-bloggers and wedding un-enthusiasts included, the importance of a website called Weddingbee. The importance of me blogging for Weddingbee. "I was meant to do this," I told Mr. Brooch. He's the only person who really understands how much it means.
Well, there's also this co-worker. She gets it because she's engaged and together, we've stalked the likes of Mrs. Sunrise and Mrs. Cherry Blossom. When I told her I was becoming a bee, her reaction was priceless. It went something like this:
[Jumping up and down]!
Mind you, this is all happening while we're sitting in our quiet office, inside my tiny cube, around a lot of people who have no idea what Weddingbee is. One of my other co-workers heard our excitement asked, "Do you get paid for this?" Without the slightest hesitation, my co-bride said, "No, but it's an HONOR!" I couldn't have said it better myself. It's an honor to be here and I'm elated!
Thank you for having us!
The anticipation of our wedding day has been building for quite sometime. Aaron proposed almost a year ago last October (I can't wait to tell you that story!), and we've had what we consider a long engagement.
Despite the time we've had to plan, we're actually only about a quarter of the way there. We've set a date, booked the venue, hired a planner, and we're working on choosing a caterer. As many of you know, that's just the basics. We haven't even tipped the iceberg yet!
So I bet you're wondering why I chose to be a part of the Accessories Series (and not the new cool Safari Animal Series). Who would want to be called Miss. Brooch (a name that rhymes with roach)? I'll admit. It sounds pretty old ladyish. The brooch is kind of an old school accessory and you don't see many twenty-somethings sporting brooches anymore.
Believe it or not, I have a collection of brooches! How random, right? What 25-year-old has a collection of brooches? I think I'm the only one! I collect pretty butterfly brooches like this one:
