Well friends, this is it! We are getting married on Saturday!
I had planned to post another recipe for you this week, but in what’s become classic form for me the past few months, I ran out of time to write it up. I realized when we were on the plane on Tuesday that the photos were still on the memory card in my camera at home. Oh well, nothing like leaving everything behind to really make you unplug and enjoy the time with family and friends! And that’s exactly what we’ve been doing the past few days and plan to do for the next week. It’s glorious so far. So today I have just words… and in October I’ll have a zucchini recipe. Oops.
I have to say that everything has really come together for the wedding, and planning has been relatively stress-free overall. The beauty of planning a wedding close to my parents’ house and faaaar away from mine :) I successfully carried my dress on two Southwest flights (all bunched up in a carry-on – now time to get it pressed!), which seemed like the biggest hurdle as far as making sure everything was in order. Now that we’re home, we get to relax, eat seafood like it’s going out of style, and drink the many batches of beer my dad brewed for the occasion. I feel very spoiled!
Of course I’m anxious for everything to go smoothly the day of – sticking to the timeline seems like it will be the biggest challenge. I also hate being the center of attention, and am a bit nervous to be the one in the white dress. I know all eyes will be on me – kind of my worst nightmare! But the forecast is 70 and sunny, and I get to marry my best friend in front of all the people we love… even if I wish they weren’t focusing their attention on me. I guess it doesn’t get much better than that.
I will of course be sharing many, many pictures after the occasion! But for the next few weeks, while we get married, go on a “mini-moon” to Martha’s Vineyard, and I then fly right to Vegas for work meetings (boo), I’m planning on unplugging. I don’t have any posts scheduled to go up – there just wasn’t time! – so I will have to leave you hanging. BUT I promise to return with wedding pictures… and a zucchini recipe.
See you when I’m a Mrs.!
