A Vintage Sunflower Wedding Invitation is unveiled + Anniversary Wishes

Happy Friday! Another week is coming to a close and today starts a weekend of joy, amazement, love and a bit of sadness all wrapped up together. Today my oldest daughter starts 1st grade - she told me last night that she was excited about school but sad too because she will miss seeing her little sister {who is now 11 months} during the day.  I'll miss HER as the house will be super quiet now during morning nap time. And, tomorrow, September 7th is the 11th wedding anniversary for myself and hubby. To celebrate, like I do every year on the blog - I have put together a fun little sunflower inspired post. Sunflowers were our wedding flower and I still LOVE them. To celebrate our anniversary, I have designed a brand new addition to my etsy shop, the sunflower wedding invitation. If we were "re-marrying" each other this year, I would most likely design my invitations to look like this . . . a little bit of a vintage touch with earthy colors.

Here's a couple beautiful sunflower centerpiece arrangements that I just LOVE . . . 

PS: I saw this deal for a free photo book from Shutterfly in my email and wanted to pass it along as it would make a great gift idea {maybe for a late anniversary gift? I could do a page for each of the trips we've taken}. From now until September 11th, you can receive one free 20-page 8x8 hard photo cover photo book. The coupon code is SUMMERBOOK
