Before I head off for a relaxing weekend at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, here are some quick highlights from the week & month…

Wedding Invitations

I always LOVE opening my Google Reader and randomly coming across blog posts that contain wedding inspirations or images from my personal friend’s weddings!  In the past 2 weeks I’ve seen two of my friends’ wedding invitations featured on major blogs.

The first invitation is for my business school friend who is getting married in Costa Rica.  She has a stunning hand painted invitation by one of the most talented and best in the industry: Kristy Rice from Momental Designs.

The second invitation is for a couple that met on my dorm floor at UCLA (back in 2001)!  They are getting married in San Francisco and their invite by Stinkerpants & Lettergirl is absolutely adorable (and very SF)!  This was featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper.
