I have been engaged for almost a year and a half and it has been one the happiest times of my life. I have been surrounded by so much love and it makes this upcoming chapter of marriage that much more exciting!

Over the weekend Steven's sisters, my soon to be sissy-in-laws, came to visit. I didn't expect they would bring a gift. Just the fact that they are going to be bridesmaids feels like a gift in itself.

But to our surprise, they presented us with this framed picture. Steven's sister Stacey is a writer for Nickelodeon and she got one of the animators to turn us into cartoon characters:

Isn't it awesome?! We have it hanging up so it is the first thing you see when you walk into our apartment.

If you are interested in giving someone this very meaningful gift, reach out to the illustrator Erica Kepler! She has an Etsy shop now and would be happy to turn anyone in your life into a cartoon character :)
