Our First Wedding Gift

Our first wedding gift arrived in the midst of a total nervous break down, yesterday evening. There was a legitimate wedding crisis, I'm talking Code Red and all that entails. My invites, which I've been slaving over for 6 months, were possibly in need of being completely redone. I was crying, looking for Xanax or possibly a bottle of wine when Alex walked in the door, carrying a giant box from Macy's.

Confused, I asked what he had bought, to which he replied "I thought you bought something". We both realized it must be a wedding gift, but who would have sent it? My invites we're in a chaotic state and certainly had not been mailed. And sure, the names of the places we are registered are on our website, but lets be honest - who reads that thing?

So I tore in with dried tears still on my cheeks to find two beautiful Vera Wang Crystal Wine Glasses, which we had registered for. I stared to cry all over again when I realized who they were from...

The lovely Ms. V - who's invites I recently showed off in design and completed form - sent them as a thank you to us for all my hard work on her invites. In the middle of a nervous break down, I'm reminded how wonderful people can be! A beautiful and unexpected gift! Thank you again Ms V!

PS - Invites are A-OK and have begun printing! Phew!
