You can tell, based on my lack of posting, that I have been preoccupied. Planning my wedding, a trip to Turkey, and deciding to pursue a new job in the middle of all this has got my head spinning! As I approach the final week before the big day, I know I need to make a very conscious effort to slow down and enjoy this time.
I need to appreciate all the pieces coming together as they have. One year ago, I said that I wasn't stressing over the planning process; that I wanted everything to come together organically. In the middle of the process, it was hard to see how that would ever happen, but now at the end I see it--the garden, the inn, the local food, the custom cupcakes, the decor I've gathered and made, my knock-off gown, our non-denominational ceremony, and all my random helpers from Craigslist--I see them all connected now in a weird, contrasting, interesting, different, and beautiful way that screams "us," and that is how I know it worked out the way it was supposed to. Now it's time watch as it all plays out in front of us and enjoy that it's a celebration of who we are, what we like, and what we have together.
Stay tuned for a recap of how it all came to be with photos galore!
