Happy monday everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. Todays topic Babies…. For the past couple of weeks theres been lots of baby talk in the air. Not me, but 2 of my close friends announced me they were pregnant. How exciting!!! I know my eldest sister is thinking of kids as well… and it made me wonder. Have you had the baby talk???
We have been talking about having kids from the moment we started dating. If I recall it was one of the first questions I ask Marc Marriage has always been something which was important for me. Not necessarily for religious reasons and so I always imagine having kids 1 year after our wedding… and my one year anniversary is in June (with no baby in sight) So my question is this.
When are you planning on having kids?

Now your probably wondering what BLUSH!NK consists of. All you need to remember are 3 little words: Inspiration, Style and Design. Since I am first and foremost a graphic designer, I will combine my skills to offer you several services:
- Inspiration: Blog portion ; daily inspiration from weddings, fashion & design +++
- Style : Fashion portion ; Jewelry and accessory design +++
- Design : Design portion ; Logo/Identity design, Invitation design + + +
So there you have it… I will keep you posted on the development and ask for your feedback along the way. Starting off with your suggestions. What would like to see on the new blog/site?
Happy Friday Everyone! Hope you had a great week! So todays Love song feature is coming for a reader suggestion (thanks Lillindy) the song she suggestion was one by the Plain White T’s entitled 1234. I didn’t know this song before now and I must admit it is a really cute song with a nice upbeat tempo which is nice than the ballads we are all used to.
So here it is 1234 by Plain White T’s:
Snippet of the lyrics:
I’m so glad I found you
I love being around you
You make it easy
Its as easy as 1-2-1-2-3-4
There’s only one thing
(I love you) I love you
Have a great weekend everyone and if you have other unique love songs… don’t hesitate to share
If there is one thing for sure, I love love love flowers. Seriously, I think I was a florist in a previous life and its surfacing again. I would love to take floral classes and I am seriously thinking about it. You know what? if I could choose my teacher, any teacher – Janie Medley would be it. Whoot Whoot! Mrs. Thang.. you know I love you – you rock! Now, you all know Janie’s work and her very popular blog (and recently revamped) : The Bride’s Cafe.

I meant to post this for a while now and haven’t had the time to get to it…. but thats no excuse I know – especially when its about a good friend of mine. Anyways… her work has been featured in the latest edition of Bride & Bloom and seriously this is a major case of floral & decor envy. See for yourself you’ll know what I mean.

Isn’t that bouquet to die for? Come on its so romantic and the fluffiness is the best part – I find. This arragement includes some of my favorite blooms: Peonies, Anemones and Ranunculus…. plus that handle in the tiffany blue – so pretty.
Janie is more than talented – shes the sweetest person I know… and if you are looking for a florist and you are in her area – what are you waiting for – hire her already. Also, I would like to give a shout out to Maria Cooke of Ritzy Bee Events. Her table decor is simply stunning and more than magazine worthy – Rock on girls!!! Rock on!!!
