6 months out - recap
Six months sounds like eons away. But I know it will fly by in the blink of an eye. These days are precious. Sure there is all of the "planning" that needs to happen...but I look forward to spending this time reflecting on the big picture of things to come: to cherish these last few months with the last name I was born with, to prepare for moving 3000 miles away from my family and friends, to enjoy being a strong and autonomous fiance, and to continue to cultivate my relationship with the coolest guy I know.
I rather enjoy being a fiance. Haven't you noticed that people get all excited and smiley when you tell them you are getting married? I am showered with congratulations and inquiries about wedding plans all while they are probably reflecting on memories of their own nuptials. It's pretty cute. I feel like handing out a card with my blog address on it - and saying, "here...this is what I'm thinking..."
This is the first list I've compiled of our accomplishments...we still have a ways to go...but it's getting there!
getting engaged - (remember our situation?)
location - Flagstaff
venue - Snow Bowl
photographer - One Love Photo
officiant - Mrs. Meg
invitations - Earthly Affair
bridal party - 5 on each side...with two maids of honor and two best men...it's how we role
bridesmaid dresses - whatever they look amazing in
bridesmaid gifts - yay!
cake - Christine the magnificent

bridal portraits - A Sophisticated View
engagement pictures - Sarah Neal Designs
Save the dates - Vista Print (sent...a looooooong time ago.)
As you can see - we have a sh*t ton of stuff left to do. But the list about looks pretty good - and I'm happy with it all...this whole shin dig might just go off as planned.
