Running Around (in circles, it seems)

28 Aug

Well, it’s less than a week before I can change the marital status box on my income taxes. Whew, how do people who have large weddings do this? Anyway, this past week’s been spent catching up on work so I can take off 3 weeks, cleaning the apartment (the closets were too full to shove things into them, so I actually had to break down and spend 2 days organizing so that when relatives come over they aren’t sitting in piles of yarn, clothes and DVDs).

Now it’s just confirming things with people — caterer, officiant, florist, dressmaker, baker — and putting together our decorations. Since this is a mostly DIY wedding, we’re making up our centerpieces ourselves (silver terracotta pots with lavender from the farmer’s market), our favors (lavender guest soaps), candles (water candles). So this week I will be making bows galore and spray painting.

Thank you all for your supportive comments in my last posting about the wedding!

Oh, and when I get a free moment or two this week or maybe next right after the wedding, keep your eyes out for a contest…

    I can’t wait to see some pics of your wedding! It will be such a load off when it’s over, you won’t know what to do with yourself🙂

    I think DIY weddings are the coolest. Good luck with the prep work, and be sure to take the time to enjoy your wedding!
