Hopefully by now, you will have all received your magnet! We hope you REALLY like them. It was during the creation of these magnets that Marcus and I discovered what the true meaning of the saying "If it doesn't kill you, it can only make you stronger". It took us about 2 weeks to get them done and out in the mail, during which time I almost put the printer through the window, Marcus and I had a row over the margins and fonts, I spilt a Crantini all over the Oriental Rug and Marcus topped if by tipping his coffee (accidentally) over the entire stack of invitation ready to be mailed. By the time we made it to the post mistress and placed them in her hands, we vowed not to talk about the wedding for at least a month. A month has passed and we have decided we are actually more determined than ever to get married (after all, everyone has a magnet!). However, we have reached deep to come up with some solutions that should help us last forever. A: Do not pretend to be something you are not. We are not crafty people and never will be. We will leave all that stuff to Marthas Stewart type A personalities who can handle that sort of pressure. Not us, we would rather pay someone else to do it. Currency is the key. Not craftiness. B. You are asking for a world of hurt when animated and holding a martin glass. Any fool will tell you that the dimentions of a martini glass practically beg the drink to leaped even when on a flat surface. Which mean "Lisa, step away from the Crantini". This naturally leads to C: Never under any circumstances eat or drink on the rug. Or better yet, never ever eat or drink on the rug when there is a potential for Marcus catching you at it. D: Nobody cares if it is in Comic Sans MS or Tahoma. Let it go... E. Word to the young: Elope. Elope now and don't look back. Even if that is the sound of your poor mother weeping behind you. A wedding is the biggest romance killer since the headache.
Now, all of this being said - we are delighted to say that all is on schedule and we are really looking forward to next summer. Delighted in fact. Hope to hear from you all soon! And don't forget...July 15
