Mehgan's Wedding - A trip to Arizona

You may think this post isn't Stampin' Up! related, however, it is. It's all about Stampin' Up! actually. This company has given me the most amazing lifelong friendships and without it, I would never have met my Mehgan.

Back in 2013, I earned my very first Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation Incentive Trip. It was to Utah. The itinerary was to spend the initial three days at the North American Stampin' Up! Convention. (You can read about >here< if you would like to catch up.)

Daniel and I were staying at the Hilton, directly across the road from the Salt Lake City Convention Centre. On the first morning, I begged Daniel to come with me because I didn't really know anyone and with 6000 people attending, it was a little overwhelming. We entered the elevator and I introduced to myself to the 5 other eager crafting ladies heading down for the convention, of which, one of them was Mehgan. Mehgan said she knew who I was and was a regular visitor to my blog. (Insert mind explosion...boom! I thought the only person who possibly went to my blog back then was my Mum! Hahaha) I told her we must be friends for life. And we are. 

This is our very first photo together back in 2013:

If you are a regular follower of my blog, (firstly thank you) you may know a little about Mehgan and some of our adventures. This one though, is by far my favourite. I was her only Bridesmaid/Maid of Honour at her Wedding in Phoenix, Arizona back in April and was so incredibly proud to be standing next her. It was a very special day. 


George is one lucky guy!
Not only did Daniel and I get to visit Mehgan's home town of Phoenix for the first time, we got to meet George for the first time too! He is warm, funny and has a smile that radiates the room and when he sees Mehgan. It was such a beautiful wedding and a very special trip, it was hard to say goodbye. It was ugly tears - I have no photos of that! 

It really is a bit lot horrible that they live on the other side of the world. I dearly miss Mehgan, however, at the same time, I am so grateful and blessed she is in my life.

Thanks to each and every single person, friend, family member and even you, my blog followers for all your support and love throughout my Stampin' Up! and life adventures. Giant hugs and kisses to you all.
Tons of Love,

  7. The view at this place was amazing. This event was in the evening so it’s really a site to see when the sun sets. Just beautiful chicago wedding venues! If you are planning your wedding here, don't worry too much about how to make it look even more beautiful.

  8. The San Francisco Florist delivered the flowers the day before to our room, and they were beautiful, and exactly like my picture I had sent. I never got to see the groom's corsage, as it went missing from our hotel's fridge, but the bridal bouquet was stunning, as well as the mothers' and fathers' corsages.
