Love Letter: Day 2

To the spunky guy with the subaru whom he loves alot ... but not as much as ME,

Hey babe! I have decided to write u a small love letter here each day to keep you updated on what we get up to each day and use the enteries as a kinda diary of my travels.

So here goes ... a little catch up for you:

* the flight was good. long, but I never got to the stage where you think "are we there yet?" and then you look at the clock and it says there's still 4 hours left! So that was great.
* My flight to Brissy was late arriving and they were taking the final calls for my connecting flight but as there was a large amount of us connecting one of the flight staff was waiting for us and took us all over to the international terminal, helping us with paperwork etc. SO helpful
* the international planes are big!! super big!
* and people in business class are lucky. super lucky!
* I had to sit between 2 strangers - for 12 hours! But the guy next to me and I became quite good friends in the end.
* And plane food isn't that bad. But they didn't really serve fruit - oh how my mum would be disappointed!
*  My flight into LA was early and I got through custom so quickly so I got there a little before Leslie but I knew her as soon as we saw one another.
* Hugging and meeting a bloggy friend in real life is surreal and so amazing.
* Leslie is amazing. and sweet and so is her little fam.
* I have only tried to get in the wrong side of the car once.. er make that twice (I did it again today!)
* I think you need to experience driving here. You would like it. but then again you just like driving full stop! it's strange and feels almost like you are over turning in the car and I keep getting confused
* the toilets are strange. super strange and low. And they FILL UP with water when u flush them?! I thought I'd chosen a toilet with a blocked pipe the first time I used one and that it was going to go everywhere!
* Cali is really warm so I have been able to wear jeans and short sleeved tops. how crazy is that?
* But I am expecting to freeze when I head further north!
* Rylan Mae is my sweet little shadow. She likes to wear my 'pretties' (headbands) and shoes and ask me what are u doing to everything I do. I totally want one - tantrums and all !!
* Yesterday we just hung around the house, relaxing and settling in.
* I miss you, but then again thats a given :)
*Today we went shopping at an awesome fabric places. SO So cheap we may have brought a lot!!

just maybe :)
you still love me right?
Always yours..

ps. Also I think it's so cute how excited you were over our feature on Polka Dot Bride :)

pps. I have a strange request: Can u email me a picture of your toilet and it's height in relation to the vanity - hehe thanks babe :)


Guess what?! 
Our engagement party has been featured on the Australian wedding blog 'Polka Dot Bride' today. We are so excited and stocked. You can click here to check it out for yourself. Thanks so much for the lovely write up Ms polka :)

ps. Have also arrived safely in LA and can't believe I'm not at all jet lagged and am already fitting in with US time. what the?! You can check out this ladies post to see how much fun were having and whats making us crack up (besides those cute kids of course).  And how I keep saying things and Leslie's all - "umm what?"
And yes, seriously the toilets really are super low here!! lol
will catch u up soon. But right now we're off to the cheap fabric shop for some shopping fun :)

a little quiet.

So things have been a little quiet around here lately and here's why...
remember that little trip to the US which I have mentioned a few times before? Well... I leave for LA in one days time! And I have been busy packing and organizing like a mad woman (well almost)!
It's kinda crazy - I can't believe  the time has snuck up on me so quickly or that I am going to be blessed enough to meet an amazing bunch of crafty fellow bloggers who I have been lucky enough to become good friends with over the past few years - throwing surprise baby showers, online christmas parties, organizing swaps and chatting away with these girls has been so much fun and I can't wait to meet and hug each and every neck in person in just over a weeks time!

I'm also excited for this time in my life - for a chance to spread my wings and fly, to explore and experience new places and new people, to get outside my comfort zone and try something new and exciting, to challenege myself, to grow and to learn from these amazing women who's passion for Christ and their families is so inspiring. And then to come home and feather my own little nest  - yipee :)

I will try to pop in from time to time and say hello.
But if things are a little quiet around here then you'll know what I'm up too :) 

love kt

Love Letter no:1

My Dearest Morgan,

Today was Friday - the exciting end of the week. The day where you get off work early and then you come to play. And we giggle. Sometimes we giggle ALOT because I do silly things like dangle off your back while you take off your shoes and make you play tag with me around the house. And sometimes.. well sometimes you just sleep. Cause you know it's been a looong week! Fortunately this afternoon was a silly one. (they are kinda my favourite!)

You picked me up and we drove in that big four wheel drive your family owns. The one I almost need a step ladder to get into cause it is SO high. Off to do afternoon errands. But I didn't mind, even though the air conditioner leaked water all over my shoes every time you took a left hand turn (seriously that water was REALLY coming out of there - with force!) - Did you mean to take so many of those left handed turns? But it didn't matter because I was with you. And you were with me. And that is really all that matters.

I love how we chatted and played as we drove along. And you teased me pretending you didn't remember that in high school Fridays were 'snuggle day' and that Friday to us just simply didn't exist. Until I was so confused by what you were saying and what you actually remembered. Oh I should know your game - you always get me with jokes like that!! Or how you refused to go along with my stupid plan to call the afternoon storm a 'snuggle storm' - I really was just being silly you know. And how you said you'd never call it that in front of anyone or tell anyone you did and how now I have just posted it on the internet for the WORLD to see because I am awesome, like that :)

And I am sorry that I probably embarrassed you in the optometrist while I was getting my contacts checked for the second time because they are 'smudgy'. And for yelling out silly things like "I think it's my eyes that are all smudgy""maybe their broken""Whats the weather forecast this afternoon baby?" or "I can't seeeee you!"
Or how I couldn't resist putting my just my leg outside the half open door and shaking it around pretending it was sexy just to get a rise from you. I hope I make you laugh and smile (because well you know I didn't have my contacts in and couldn't see your face). And I hope I was able to take your mind off a long not so good work week!
and of course for anyone interested, my optometrist was out the back while I was carrying on so! although we do have a few laughs together and I think he finds me funny and not too strange :)

Thanks for a fun afternoon my love...
I love you forever even though you truly do remember snuggle days, even when you say you don't :)
lets play forever and always be silly.
Always your
kt bear

a date.

Four our minus 1 year anniversary Morgan took me up to Wine Country to celebrate. We had lunch at the vineyard where we are having our wedding reception and sampled the food and wine - well I sampled the wine, cause he was driving this:
borrowed (with permission of course) from the parents.
And I thought you might like a little sneak peek of outside (I unfortunately didn't take any snaps of the  inside)...
the courtyard, where we hope to have the evening dancing (weather permitting)
the view.

the chicken shed. 
They use the fresh eggs for the meals and also the veggies from the veggie patch :)
Canapes on the lawn will be served here.

outdoor seating. I can just imagine this at night with all the lights on :)
After lunch we played in the vines.
and that was fun!

over lunch I caught the Mr-to-be starring and smiling at me in a total look of love
and I very much melted on the spot
And I realized ONCE AGAIN
How much I love this dear boy!!
I also realized something else that day ..
I have really deep armpit cavities!
like REALLY deep!
mmm sexy!
