I've been plodding along, diligently working on my artwork - it's not anywhere near ready for today's submission deadline, so I'll have to pull something from the archives. But there are so many distractions in my life. I can't stop thinking about the wedding and how ill-prepared we are! We haven't ordered the lights for our lanterns, haven't chosen the food, and I haven't made my dress! Plus, I think I might be overdressed in a dress, since we're having a jeans allowed wedding/party.
My in-laws (is it completely weird if I love saying that?) are working to get their house ready. When they bought it, it was basically a crummy shell of a house, and it is going to go through a drastic transformation here soon. Susan planted beautiful flowers all over the place. We're not going to buy any. We'll have under 30 guests. I think some candles on the tables, the lanterns, and some expertly placed tulle and ribbon will be enough. it will look beautiful against the still-very-green of their 17 acre property.
I imagine a lot of people feel this strange mix of excitement and anxiety when it comes to planning these events. But I'm a bit frazzled. 5 weeks until the big day!!!
Wish us luck!
