Love & stuff

Hi readers! I'm traveling for work this week so I'm leaving you in the hands of some fabulous guest bloggers to talk about love - people they love, things they love, or just love in general. (This just might have something to do with a lovely giveaway coming soon!) 

We're kicking it off this week with Aly. She's sweet, funny, and has just come home to Australia after living with her fiance in London for three years. Take it away Aly!

I've been in such a daze lately, it's time to stop, smell the roses, and appreciate the little things that have caught my eye & tugged at my heartstrings lately. And since the gorgeous Becky was in need of some guest posters, what better time to reflect on all things lovely?

I should explain something before I start bombarding you with pictures, especially if we haven't yet met around the blogosphere. I'm Aly, I blog over at 'Breathe Gently' and... I'm getting married this coming June. (Five months! Woo!) What that means is that despite the obvious fact that I get to marry the love of my life very, very soon - is that I have wedding things on the brain. Like, all the time. Everywhere I go, I see things I want to use in the wedding. I have bookmarks and photo files coming out of the wazoo. Everything is pretty! adaptable! would look perfect! Yep, I'm obsessed. And so without any further ado, let's get busy with the looooove.
  
I am completely & utterly in love with these babies. The cute! I die!

And aren't they going to look just perfect on our wedding cake?

This (in similar colours, since our scheme revolves around gray, green & ivory) is my next project, which I can't wait to get started on!

These amazing letterpress invitations make me swoon, but oy! Way out of our budget.
And as for people? Well, I have loads that I loooove:

My family: they drive me crazy, but they also keep me sane. I was so happy to be able to spend Christmas at home with them this year, for the first time in the three years we were away. They helped us move into our new apartment, they provided us generously with spare furniture and cookware, they've made our transition into life back home that little bit easier.
The whole gang at Christmas. Complete with dorky hats.

My MOH (& bff-extraordinaire): Honestly, moving back home hasn't been easy. Jase and I are both more than a little bit homesick for London, I'll admit it. But one thing I was crazy excited about moving back home for, was to spend more time with my best friend, Miss K. Being able to see each other heck, even once a week, is SO great. I love that despite being apart all this time, we're still as close as ever. She's fabulous.
Fresh sangria in Barcelona, don't mind if we do!
My two boys: Jase & Oscar-cat. There are two things that make my heart melt: men with their babies & men with their pets. Obviously there are no babies here yet, but watching Jase fawning all over the cat is one of the most adorable things and I'll never get tired of watching them together.
It's blurry, but that's Oscar for you.


What are YOU loving lately?

What do you think readers? Anyone else have as many inspiration ideas for weddings as Aly does? Do you rock the crazy hats (or ugly sweaters!) with your family during the holiday? If you want to know more about Aly & Jase (or her mischievous cat Oscar) be sure to head over to her blog!

I often see things that I'd love to recreate for my wedding... well, assuming I actually get married some day! There's lots of great inspiration in the blogosphere!

Right now I am loving the fact that my Paris trip is just DAYS away!!
