Hey bees, I am not going to link to her personal site right now in an attempt to not add to the madness, but Mrs. Avo has gotten a lot of nasty things said about her and Suavocado and their marriage over the last two days. I thought it might be nice if we could give her something nice to look at here while she sorts out the vitriol over there.
So Mrs. Avo, I just wanted to say that as a reader of both your writing on Weddingbee and on your personal site, I am impressed, astounded, jealous of, and ever-so-slightly intimidated by your self-confidence, capability as a planner, capability as a photographer, your impeccable taste, your appreciation for awesome salads, your dedication to your health, your dedication to your faith, and the fact that you managed to snag a husband who I’m sure has a sexy accent. I wish you all the best in your marriage, your future motherhood, and your photography business. Thank you for sharing your wedding and your life with us — it is inspiring.
Ok, bees, do that thing you do. 🙂 I know I can count on our positive community.
(As a disclaimer, let’s not bring up the issues that are being discussed on her site right now. If you want to do that, go there. Please just let this thread be positive and uplifting.)

I’m sorry but I would like to help but I’m not familiar with her site…

That’s actually the point.. I didn’t want people talking about her site and its current issues here, just about how they appreciate Mrs. Avocado in whatever capacity they are familiar with her. It’s ok if all you know is her work on WB.

Ooh, you want us to post here, gotcha!
Mrs. Avocado, no matter what is going on in your life. You can be sure that you have my support. Your posts were very inspiring and helpful for me when planning my wedding, and I love your poise and your decdication to making your wedding reflective of you and your values. I hope that whatever is going on gets resolved sooner rather than later. *hugs*

Miss Avocado is a darling bee and a smart, articulate woman with a great head on her shoulders. She’s got a supportive husband who cares about her wellbeing, and the two of them are continually working to better their lives and relationship so that they’ll have a successful and happy marriage forever. They’re totally awesome rolemodels for other couples. I love her blog! I wish mine was more like hers (mine is um… practically non-existant ever since I started posting for WB!!).

Mrs. Avo, you are the coolest. I love your suitcases. And your awesome awesome photos. Don’t sweat the stupid people. There were always be those out there that have nasty things to say. We love you! 🙂

I LOVE Mrs. Avocado’s blog. Her blog is the ONLY one that I read because I am so encouraged by her dedication to her faith.
Mrs. Avocado…Just remember that if you are being attacked, it is because you are doing great things for God. He notices all that you do and loves you regardless of what anyone else says. Thanks for being such a great witness to others!!!

Mrs. Avocado is SUCH an inspiring woman. I swoon over her wedding photos and great inspiration constantly, and I’m stealing so many of her ideas for my own wedding (vintage suitcases for pictures, cake buffet, etc). I fell in love with her blog before she was a bee and was so excited to see her on here.

Whenever I’m frustrated or not having a very good day, weddingbee is definitely the place to come to. Mrs. A: Just remember that if others are bringing you down, it’s because they have nothing better to do and are only trying to bring you down because that’s where they are–misery loves company. Don’t let them get to you. Surround yourself with positive bees. *hugs*

I commend Mrs Avocado for having the courage and confidence to blog about her life and her relationship. No one is going to agree 100% all the time and every relationship is different. If people disagree with her, they should keep their comments to themselves… I don’t understand why people post negative things to those they don’t even know. If family members or friends felt the same way – those would be the people to say something, privately – not nameless, faceless cowards.

I’m so sorry for all the negativity you’ve had thrown your way the past few days! Keep your chin up and don’t let the naysayers keep you from sharing your heart.

Avo, you are such an amazing woman and I admire both you and your marriage. I love reading your blog and I can only hope that I’ll be able to blog after this wedding process with the same consistency, honesty and love that pours out in your posts. Remember for every negative commenter there are at least 100 that only have love and encouragement for you.

Avo, you’re such an inspiration — you blog SO consistently, and your entries are thought-provoking and witty (not to mention the great pictures!). I wish I were confident enough to post controversial topics in such a public forum!

Hey, Sweet Pea – you make me rethink many of my assumptions about many things, and I’m proud to be able to call you a fellow bee. When I grow up, I want to have my head on as straight as yours.
Your parents did a great job. You can tell them I said so.
