Just a quick note to share something I am excited about!

My invitations are in production, and the envelopes should be arriving today, so I can turn around and whisk them off to my calligrapher. But, even more exciting, our return address stamp just arrived!

Originally we wanted to have the calligrapher do our return addresses, just like I wanted my groom to ride into the ceremony on a horse, and I wanted to have Idan Raichel play during our reception (seriously, I looked into it). But, as my mother says, “You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.”

Apparently I’m not the only one who took these words to heart…

In this case, we needed affordable and legible return addresses for our invites. This ruled out having either our calligrapher or me do them. But just when I thought all was lost, I found Emilie Friday’s shop.

Now the only question is: when the envelopes arrive later today should I stamp all of them before sending them to my calligrapher, or risk her doing an excellent job and then effing a couple up with my inferior stamping skills? I think I may have answered my own question, but if you have additional insight into this issue, please share!
