I'm still here....

... and into the second week of marriage!

We're going on a slightly delayed honeymoon this week, so after we return next Wednesday, I'll start putting up pics and sharing the day with you.

I'm sorry for not posting anything earlier, but to be honest, I was just so completely overdosed on all things wedding that I needed to ignore the blog for a few days. And even now, after a week's recovery, it just seems so overwhelming, there is so much to say, that it makes me a little tired just thinking about it! For now, here is a snap of one of the most intensely happy moments of my life, captured by my very talented friend Tony...

Enjoy the week, send us good wishes in sunny Mexico (yahoo!!!!), and I'll be back with a full report (probably in increments) late next week.

I'm getting married IN. TWO. DAYS.

I feel calm and excited. I wish I could write more, but to be perfectly frank, I have better stuff to do :) We're picking up our rental car tomorrow and driving down to my parent's house.... and the wedding weekend frenzy will commence!! So I don't think I'll be writing again until after I become a wife. Never fear! I will report back asap with all the deets!!

Send us some good wishes at 4pm on Saturday!!

It's Messy

Phew. 8 days out. I have to say, things are getting messy. I thought I had it all together, but I really really didn't. I get nuts sometimes, when I let my true control-freak nature run wild and unchecked. I get freaked and frazzled and overwhelmed. Things I never thought would give me a moments concern now have me hyperventilating. Like a tie being the wrong shade of yellow. I KNOW!! Ugh, crazy town.

So now, what I'm trying to do, is remember that messes are fun. Not everything has to be tidy and presented in neat little packages. It's hectic and nutso and there is last minute scrambling, but ALL WILL BE WELL. That's one of my mother's favorite things to say, and she's gal-dang RIGHT.

Messes are fun, and breathing is helpful.
