nostalgia + a winner

It's Monday. After a very busy weekend.
And all I can think about right now is how much I want Mexican food.
Maybe it's because I need a margarita.
Yep, that's gotta be it.
And also the fact that I LOVE Mexican food.
Shawn doesn't. He says it's because they "microwave" it, i.e. take it out of the freezer and heat it up in a big oven. But he still eats at Olive Garden. Pretty sure they do the same thing there...hmmmm...weirdo.

Speaking of Shawn.
Last week I mentioned that I was struggling.
Well, I hit the proverbial wall on Friday night.
Laying in bed, I spilled my guts to him and he knew just what to say to put everything into perspective.
He has plans and realistic ideas and observations.
And no matter how impatient or overwhelmed I get, he sticks to the plan. He sees the big picture.
He knows what to say to calm me down. To see the reality of it.
I like to think that I keep myself together pretty well, but sometimes I break.
Shawn's always right there to keep me sane. To help me pick up the pieces and give it another go.
And I always do.
So I am.
Thank God for that man.

Ok, sappiness over.
Wanna see some pics of the hubs and I?
A couple weeks ago, Shawn and I did a Relive the Moment shoot with Amy Clark Studios.
Amy, and her fabulous assistant and fellow Cbus blogger Jackie, were so much fun to work with. They're energetic and easy going, and made us feel so comfortable despite being all dolled up in populated park.
Take a peek:

{see more on my Facebook page}

It was so much fun to get to put my dress on again {and very rewarding knowing that it still fit!}!
Shawn was bummed not to have his tux, but I kinda loved his casual, after-the-ceremony look. It's much more him.
Now, we have the pleasure of picking out our favorites, which is going to be so tough!
We truly enjoyed this experience with Amy and Jackie. And I'm so glad that I answered Jackie's tweet a couple weeks ago! 
I wasn't in love with our wedding pics, so I was grateful to have another go at them. Even though it wasn't quite the same, it still brought back the same refreshing feelings of love and excitement. Very nostalgic.
So, if any of you Cbus wives are wanting to relive your wedding day, contact Amy Clark Studios right now!
You won't be disappointed!

And congratulations to Kirsten @ Through the Front Door for winning my business card giveaway!

That is an AMAZING photo shoot! Is it bad that I haven't dry cleaned my wedding dress yet? (I got married last May. Oops!) And how appropriate that you posted those pictures after writing about your wonderful husband!
