I am in Kentucky for two weeks for work. Small town, thank-gawd-there-is-a-Walmart, Kentucky. So, I left the husband this morning with a gentle reminder to purchase stamps for our wedding thank-you cards, apply said stamps to said cards, and mail said cards at some point this week. Before I knew it I had an e-mail from the husband stating that he had purchased the stamps and was putting the cards in the mail.

I hit speed dial on my phone pronto to no avail. I resorted to a panicked e-mail to inquire as to what stamps he had bought. A response came stating "Liberty Bell Forever Stamps." My heart sank. I feverishly replied to the e-mail and pleaded for him not to affix the stamps if he hadn't already. But it was too late. The deed had been done. Our thank you notes, calligraphied with the perfect plum ink on darling white linen envelopes were defaced by the liberty bell.
And for a moment, like all of you, I cringed. But then, I got over it. After all, the husband was just doing what I asked of him! In fact, he did it so quickly that I didn't even have time to think that I should have specified that he buy these stamps or even these. Once I told him that I didn't really want to have the bell stamps on our envelopes, you could hear how disheartened he was. But he didn't know any better. He was just trying to accomplish a wedding-related task so that it would be hanging over my head. And that is just another reason why I love him.
So friends, our thank you notes are making their way to our guests, liberty stamp and all, and will be shared with all of you some time this week!Isn't this invitation suite adorable?! Right down to the thank you note, above. From style me pretty.
