a message in a bottle.

now that all of my future bridesmaids have received their “message in a bottle,”  i can share with you how i asked my best friends to be my beloved b-maids!  since all of my bffs live in three different states on the mainland — and i live on an island in the pacific ocean — i knew i wasn’t going to be able to ask them in person.  so i found it very fitting to ask them via a message in a bottle seeing as i’m across the sea.  (nevermind the fact that i did see two of them in person a few weeks ago on my sponatenous trip to LA, but by that time, i had already thought of this master plan of mine and really wanted to ask each of my friends the same way!).  i printed out a little poem i made up on brown paper lunch sacks, tied them with some twine (from olive manna), filled the tiny bottles (from third shift) with sand, made each girl a special card telling them why i love them so dang much, and shipped ’em off.  and thankfully, they all said yes!  i had a lot of fun making them and am so excited to have my amazing friends stand next to me on our special day.
