Mr. & Mrs. Pumpkin

This October, my husband Dan & I had our 1 month married anniversary.  What better way to celebrate than to dress up some little pale pumpkins?  At least that's what this fall/DIY loving girl thought.

I used small letter stamps to stamp on the "Mr." & "Mrs." & created the top hat out of black cardstock.  The bow tie & veil were fashioned using some ribbon & tulle scraps I had lying around, & the handy glue gun made it all stick together.

Seeing this little pair makes me happy!  What can I say, it doesn't take much.

It’s been a little over a month since I said “I do” to the man in the next room, & almost three since I packed up all my things & left my little apartment, family, & state for a brand new everything…

It’s a season of transition & change, & I’m reminded time & again of the wildflowers.  Those bold little blooms that pop up where you’d least expect.  They bloom without a gardener, fancy greenhouse, or special fertilizer - growing just ‘cause God’s hand chose to embellish His creation with a little something extra.  Something to display more of His awesome glory.  Something with purpose & beauty in this wild place.  These are my wildflower journals of how God is growing this little sprout of a woman up where she least expected.

May your life be like a wildflower, growing
freely in the beauty & joy of each day.
