“I’m selfish, impatient, and
a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am
out of control and at times hard to handle.
But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t
deserve me at my best.”
I can’t resist. It’s June and that, traditionally, means the
height of the wedding season. (For those
of you who don’t know, my shop, The Menagerie, has a traditional bridalregistry. We try to make each bride feel
like a princess because, we believe, service like that still matters!)
Even though times have
changed and brides now marry in almost equal numbers year-round, I wanted to
give you some (I think) funny quotes on what it means to marry in June. Maybe these are why June used to be so
(FYI, the origin of these
quotes is unknown. Most think they are
oral tradition, handed down from mother to daughter for generations.)
“Married in month of roses
June, life will be one long honeymoon.”
“A June bride will be
impetuous, and generous.”
“Marry when the June roses
grow, over land and sea you’ll go.”
4 cups briskly boiling water
1 cup steel cut oats
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Milk to taste (optional)
Honey or brown sugar to taste
1 tablespoon nuts
1/2 banana, sliced
1. Pour the cinnamon and oats into boiling water and stir until it begins to thicken.
2. Lower the heat until it simmers and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. It's important not to overcook the oats so that you get a nice, nutty flavor.
4. Add the remaining ingredients and enjoy!

Vickie just sent us this fun pic from Vegas, and we wanted to share:
The word from Vegas is that: "Anything goes! Mix gold with wood, diamonds with wood, yellow metal with white metal...." You name it, they're seeing it this year. We can't wait until they get home - we'll be sure to let you know when all the new jewelry has arrived!
Whether you exchange gifts at the Rehearsal Dinner, the day of the wedding, or on your wedding night, be sure to choose a gift that is as special as she is. Here's one of our favorites: the diamond huggie earring. Classic, timeless, small enough to wear every day but sparkly enough to make an impression, the diamond huggie will become one of her favorites too!
