I’m blessed to have many role models for how to create a loving marriage and home. One of those I feel so privileged to have experienced first-hand is that of my friends Dave and Erin. They are raising three amazing children in an environment of support, encouragement and respect that is truly inspirational. It’s also a lot of fun — you can get a taste of it at Dave’s blog, Tomato Transplants. Erin recently sent me a package for the bouquet (a very fun package, I might add – filled with mini-chocolate bars, wrapped up in a polka-dot bow – so awesome!). Inside, I found two sets of funky clip-on earrings that Erin found at Value Village; it’s amazing how much joy such little baubles can bring! There’s something about these earrings that are just perfect for this project – I can’t decide if it’s the colour, the size, or the dimension to them – but I smile everytime I look at them! I can’t wait to work them into the bouquet – and to show them to the kids when they come to wedding!
