Dearest readers: So sorry this has taken so long. We have recently taken to being jetsetters... that's really a fancy term for "never home anymore." Our calendar is jam packed with events, wedding planning, and work.
A few weekends ago we were fortunate enough to go on a float trip with some really good friends. It was a great chance to catch up, relax, and forget the stresses of everyday life for a few days. Thank you to Carrie and Joe, Allison and Michael, and Jill and Adrian for making this happen. We are truly lucky to have friends like you in our lives.
My mom came up the following weekend. We did some wedding planning in overdrive! Our invitations were ordered and came in a mere few days later, and Mom and I spent an evening and next day addressing them. While we will not be sending them out for another few weeks, I feel fortunate that we have them completed and ready to go. We also got a head start on putting together the centerpieces. Who knew it would be so difficult to find the needed items for making them? Trying to find these took up a majority of our time, but it is nice to say that we were able to locate and complete 9 pieces! 21 to go (a rough estimate... once we start receiving RSVPs, this number may change)!!!
Finally, this past weekend, time simply slipped through our fingertips. We were out of the apartment more time than in, and, while we did not make much gain on the wedding plans, began to organize and finalize other areas of our lives.
Finally, friends, big news: Jeff and I have decided to expand our family. No, Moms, I'm not talking babies. We have come into contact with a foster mother of puppies... her organization goes into shelters that euthanize and remove any and all animals that are adoptable and foster them until they find homes for them. Needless to say, the mother was a mere hours from being euthanized (along with her litter) when she was rescued and taken to her home. The puppies are thriving and we will be bringing one home in a few weeks. :)
I think I have pretty much caught you up to date on our typically mundane lives. It is difficult to understand that we are less than 100 days from the wedding and even more difficult to realize that in a little over 100 days our lives will begin to slow down.... we hope!! :) I pray that all is well with you and yours. :)
